Malaysia's governmental Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, aka. JAKIM) has published its annual Islamic calendar for the western year 2015 (corresponding to 1436-1437 AH).
The above announcement means that, de facto, the dates of the following Muslim public holidays in Malaysia have now been set for 2015: Maulidur Rasul (The Prophet's Birthday), Israk dan Mikraj (The Prophet's Night Journey), Awal Ramadhan (First of Ramadan), Nuzul Al-Quran (Revelation of the Koran), Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan), Hari Raya Korban (Feast of Sacrifice), and Awal Muharam (Islamic New Year). Interestingly, though, the aforementioned announcement fails to take into account the fact that the Prophet's birthday (Maulidur Rasul) will occur twice in 2015, once in January and once in December.
Based on past practice (13-Jul-2013, 08-Dec-2011, 01-Aug-2011, 20-Jul-2010 and 11-Sep-2009), this de facto announcement of 2015 Muslim public holidays dates, and the dates of the other non-Muslim Malaysian public holidays for 2015, are not expected to be officially confirmed until the end of the summer of 2014.
