I only see posts dating up to Sep '21 and nothing more. I’ve cleared my profile, reinstalled a new profile, etc, but still Sep '21.

I also noticed neither the blog, the community nor their Twitter account shows anything past Sep '21.

Now I’m starting to think maybe it’s not me… But how does a P2P network just stop working, if so?

    No, I don’t think it’s just you. It’s been a while since I last opened that app because the updates were always a bit few and far between. So after reading this I launched it, waited for it to catch up, and I’ve got nothing beyond September 2021. I checked out the Aether subreddit (since that was the first place I learned about it) and there’s a post asking the same exact question. And that post went up three months ago.

    One user responded that they still see posts every day, but a second user confirmed that nothing has gone up since September. So yeah, I think something has fallen over. I don’t know if it’s dead or not, but something’s wrong.

      Thanks for confirming, as I’ve been ripping mine to pieces for 3 days trying all sorts of stuff. Just so odd that no actual announcement, and also it is P2P so strictly speaking it should carry on as long as a few people use it…

    They just released a new version of Aether this month. I just downloaded it. I’m not sure how active it is, but it’s still being developed/released.

    Last comment I have on the P2P client is dated from yesterday, but other than that it’s pretty much a no man’s land. Can’t have much content when nobody participates.

      Dev did respond now to say he has been busy looking for a job, but as his node runs the whole time he still has connections. He thinks it may be an issue with the bootstrap node, which he will have a look at on Monday. I suppose ideally a P2P node should be kept running and not only started up every two months or so ;-)
