Brazil has published new dates for daylight saving time (known in the country as the início do Horário de Verão) for 2008-2009. As confirmed on Brazil's Ministry of Energy web site, the Electric Power Sector Monitoring Committee (aka the Comitê de Monitoramento do Setor Elétrico, or CMSE) set the new dates for DST, which will begin on October 19, 2008, and end on February 15, 2009. See this link for more details (in Portuguese) or this link for the translation into English. Pakistan will delay their "fall back" this year, as confirmed on the DAWN site here, Pakistan's federal cabinet extended DST to Oct 31/November 1, which initially began on June 1 this year. This is a delay of the change that was supposed to happen on September 1: as such, clocks will "fall back" by one hour on November 1 rather than September 1. (This information has also been updated here: here on the faridi.net new site.) It appears that the information has not yet been posted to any government sites in Pakistan.
