In the SO blog post "Introducing Stack Exchange Data Explorer" (2010-06-13), Jeff states in a footnote:

we are looking at eventually making special weekly or biweekly dumps for SEDE

Is this still planned?

    I'd like to get new data at SEDE more frequently too. Sep 7, 2010 at 4:47

This is something only the Stack Exchange team can (and should) provide a definite answer for right here, of course, but at least it is still mentioned quite prominently as the last point in the respective FAQ, so right now we have every reason to believe that your feature-request is in fact status-planned:

How frequently is Stack Exchange Data Explorer updated?
At the moment it is updated shortly after every Stack Exchange Creative Commons Data Dump. We plan to update the data of SEDE weekly or even bi-weekly some time in the future.

  • Just realized the minor semantic error in the phrasing as copied verbatim, but this should really be just accidental and read as bi-weekly or even weekly rather than weekly or even bi-weekly I'd say ... Aug 10, 2010 at 10:40
  • makes me wonder if by "biweekly" they actually meant "semiweekly"... very common mistake

  • @Kip - you are most likely right, makes much more sense like that: interestingly the dictionary I usually refer to initially (being a non native speaker myself) actually provides translations with both meanings for bi-weekly, while semiweekly seems unambiguous, so the former ambiguity appears to be kind of an already 'accepted' public change of meaning?!

    Unfortunately, the faq has been changed to "How frequently is Stack Exchange Data Explorer updated? -- Data is updated monthly.", so this has become more of a status-declined :(
