Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I read somewhere that more or less each month a new data dump is available. The last dump for Stack Overflow was on February 9, 2011. So when can I expect the new data dump?

Do you mean 2010 or 2011? – Pëkka Mar 16 '11 at 17:42
@Pekka Sorry 2010... Still living in the old year here. – RoflcoptrException Mar 16 '11 at 17:44
Expect it more or less a month or more after the last update or so – random Mar 16 '11 at 17:51
@random perhaps never before has your username been more appropriate – Daniel DiPaolo Mar 16 '11 at 17:56
@Daniel ahahahaha! – Pëkka Mar 16 '11 at 17:59

The data dumps now only come out every two months, so you can expect a new one just after April Fool's Day. SEDE is still updated monthly, though.

Because the dumps are quite a bit of work for us, we’re moving to a bi-monthly schedule instead of monthly. Meaning, you can expect dumps every two months instead of every month. If you have an urgent need for more timely data than this, contact us directly, or use the Stack Exchange Data Explorer, which will continue to be updated monthly.

As of September 2011, it's every three months.
