glad it's not just me
The call for research proposals we put out last summer generated more interest in the resources we were offering than we expected. Reviewing and rigorously vetting dozens of applications has therefore taken quite a bit longer than we planned. We are, however, in the final stages of the review process and hope to announce the grant winners in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
I found the setting :Hello,
We are pleased to report that access to the data export files has been re-activated and is available again. Volunteers who wish to access the data will not need to sign a Data Processing Agreement or obtain tokens.
The review concluded that if volunteers are given explicit notice of and sufficient control over how their data is used, there was no legal justification for imposing any further restrictions on the data export files. The review also concluded that we will likely need to reinforce and strengthen the consent language in a few places on our website, but that doesn't stop us from opening up access to the data exports in the meantime.
This process took significantly longer than any of us hoped or anticipated, and we understand people's frustrations while we had to disable access pending the legal review. But we felt it was important to push back aggressively on what was initially a process more appropriate to a commercial engagement than a philanthropic initiative and to persevere until we had an outcome that was both GDPR-compliant as well as volunteer-friendly.
Finally, a reminder that while access to the data exports is now unrestricted, the export files only include data of volunteers who have opted to make their information public.
Thank you for your patience, and as always, your support.

Hope some news will get some people happy.
Will there be a fix to allow the app to run under XP? I haven't had any issues with it once I modified it.
Howdy, I have some bad news about the support for Windows XP. We are not supporting Windows XP for WCG projects. The extended support ended almost 5 years ago for Windows XP ( https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsforbusiness/end-of-xp-support ).
Personally I would recommend updating those machines that are still running Windows XP to a recent version of Windows or Linux so that your machines become more secure.
