TZInfo version 0.3.8 has been released (based on version 2008b of the
underlying tz data).

Gem, zip and tar.gz files can be found at
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=894. You can use 'gem update' to
upgrade if you already have the tzinfo gem installed.

Changes in this release:

* Updated to tzdata version 2008b
* Support loading timezone data in Ruby 1.9.0. Use DateTime.new! if it
is available instead of DateTime.new0 when constructing transition
times. DateTime.new! was added in Ruby 1.8.6. DateTime.new0 was
removed in Ruby 1.9.0. Thanks to Joshua Peek for reporting this.
Closes #17606.
* Modify some of the equality test cases to cope with the differences
between Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.9.0.
