Western Australian Daylight Savings Changes for Windows

Western Australia is introducing daylight saving for a trial period commencing December 3, 2006. Several Microsoft® products require updates in order to display the correct time during the daylight saving period.

Western Australia is introducing daylight saving on a trial basis for the next three years.

Microsoft products which are aware of daylight saving time changes need to be updated to include the new Western Australia time zone rules.
The following table shows the start and end dates for the daylight saving period in each year of the trial

Start / End
the hour of 2 a.m. on 03 Dec 2006 / the hour of 2 a.m. on 25 March 2007
the hour of 2 a.m. on 28 Oct 2007 / the hour of 2 a.m. on 30 March 2008
the hour of 2 a.m. on 26 Oct 2008 / the hour of 2 a.m. on 29 March 2009

Note: Both the start and end time are specified in standard time, so the end time is 3 am daylight saving time.
