The Turkish Government decided to stay on summertime, so the current timezone will be permanent. Previously before this decision, Daylight saving time (Summer time) would end on 30 October 2016 and hours would be changed automatically. Turkey has decided it will no longer follow daylight saving time (DST) and and will turn back clocks by an hour on 30th October 2016.

This document provides instructions to update tzdata rpms on Oracle Big Data Appliance (BDA), which contain a fix for the Turkey timezone update.

The official repository of time zone information is at: IANA Timezone (Olson) database.
