According to this blog article dated Sept 2011: https://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?

    I liked it better when they were monthly. I don't see why this couldn't be done on a more frequent basis.

    6-8 weeks should be the canonical answer.

    As of January 2013, the last dump is from August 2012 --- which increase the delay to 24 weeks or more.

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.

    We are still in the process of determining our new home for data dumps. Don't worry, we haven't forgotten. Jan 9, 2013 at 3:27
