According to this blog article dated Sept 2011: http://blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/09/creative-commons-data-dump-sep-11/

While we will always continue to produce Stack Exchange creative commons data dumps, we are moving to a quarterly schedule for all future dumps.

Clearbits, the recommended site to get the data dump torrents at http://www.clearbits.net/creators/146-stack-exchange-data-dump, lists the most recent dump as December 2011.

Is the plan still to provide quarterly data dumps?

If so, when will they resume?

Not quite a duplicate, but closely related: Data dump for the month of March 2012 –  Pops May 28 '12 at 21:23

I liked it better when they were monthly. I don't see why this couldn't be done on a more frequent basis. –  Kibbee May 29 '12 at 1:54

6-8 weeks should be the canonical answer. –  kiamlaluno May 29 '12 at 7:24

As of January 2013, the last dump is from August 2012 --- which increase the delay to 24 weeks or more. –  sorin Jan 8 '13 at 12:32
    
The Stack Exchange Data Dump is now at the Internet Archive, located here: Stack Exchange Data Dump. –  CoolHandLouis Mar 5 at 12:02

Update

According this blog article dated Jan 2014: "Stack Exchange Creative Commons data now hosted by the Internet Archive"

The Stack Exchange Data Dump is at the Internet Archive, located here: Stack Exchange Data Dump.

(The clearbits link no longer works.)


We have been in a holding pattern with Amazon which have promised us space for our public data dumps. Due to their lack of response I will be uploading Q1 2012 to ClearBits which should be available within the next few hours.

Thank you for providing a one-off data dump. While that is helpful, it does not directly address the question posed. –  Pat James Jun 5 '12 at 16:45

We are still in the process of determining our new home for data dumps. Don't worry, we haven't forgotten. –  Geoff Dalgas Jan 9 '13 at 3:27

@PatJames now with the new host for the dumps it should be a full answer that you can accept. :) –  Shadow Wizard Mar 5 at 11:28
    
@GeoffDalgas, I updated this post with the new location of the data dump. I thought you might be particularly interested since you answered, it's your job, etc... Thanks –  CoolHandLouis Mar 5 at 11:32
    
@sorin note that I've updated this answer to reflect the new home for the data dumps. –  CoolHandLouis Mar 5 at 11:37
