- In Samoa, the Daylight Saving Time period ends on 2011-04-03 at 1:00, not at midnight.

- In Fiji, the end of the Daylight Saving Time period has been moved to 2011-03-06.

- In the file, an obsolete association of Vostok Station with South Magnetic Pole was removed, and the association with Lake Vostok was added instead.
