There will NOT be a new leapsecond added on January 01, 2012. Thus the
current SPICE
leapseconds kernel, naif0009.tls, (last updated on 2008 July 7 to add the
leapsecond taking
place as of 2009 Jan 01) remains in effect until at least 2012 Jul 01.

--The NAIF Team

P.S. There is some chance leap seconds will be discontinued. This proposal
will come to a vote at a January 2012 meeting of the International
Telecommunications Union - Radio Communications Sector.  For more
