Can't use geolocation feature b/c .dat files no longer available

Can't use geolocation feature b/c .dat files no longer available

I posted a variation of this in  the MetaMod forum, not noticing that there was also a MetaMod Pro forum (I just recently upgraded to Pro).

The geo location .dat files MetaMod currently uses are no longer available from their source, MaxMind.  When will MetaMod support MaxMind's current GeoLite2 tool?

Thanks!

From MaxMind, the source of the GeoIP .dat files:  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.
