GeoIP legacy .dats will be gone 5/22. When will MM use the new DBs?

GeoIP legacy .dats will be gone 5/22. When will MM use the new DBs?

The Maxmind site says that the legacy files will be dropped in May 2022. They have already removed direct download links from their web site ... you have to email them to ask about getting a .dat file.

When will Metamod support the new formats?

Thanks!

Re: GeoIP legacy .dats will be gone 5/22. When will MM use the new DBs?

I contacted Maxmind as well, who corrected me, as follows:

Apologies, as of 2019-01-02, our GeoLite Legacy (.dat format) databases are now fully discontinued. (Kindly please note, the discontinuation was first announced on 2018-01-02.) We recommend updating your database integration to use our current free GeoLite2 format instead.

Please note, we are also retiring our GeoIP Legacy database formats at the end of May 2022. As a result, legacy access to our commercial databases is no longer automatically enabled.
