The issue still exists, and it doesn't seem likely that problem will be fixed any near future. The new API is damn slow, so fetching stats would take such a long time that we won't even go for it for now. I will let you know if things turn to better.
There are issues with statistics update and registeration, and this needs some rework to be done. Stats updates will probably be back up in after 3-4 -ish days, but I let you know how things progress.
