DST Change and Slack 9.1

Anywhere I can get an update or source to fix a Slack 9.1 box to handle the coming DST date change?

NTP only sets the hardware clock to UTC. It is a function of the timezone libraries in glibc(I think) that affect how the time is displayed with respect to the actual timezone.
While I agree that upgrading may not be a bad idea, I can also say that I think if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
