Default Is JTAS still going?

Is JTAS (jtas.sjgames.com) still being updated? How often do they publish new material? And are the archives still available to subscribers?
I've been thinking of getting back into Traveller and I used to be a subscriber so I was thinking whether or not it would be worth it to subscribe again.

The SJGames Traveller license expires at the end of this year. The have been not allowing new subscriptions for several months now. There are plans to have the archives (and the GT books) available sometime next year.

Ok, good to know. Thanks for the info.
Is anything known about when and from there the archive and the GT books will be available? I'm totally out of the loop on which sites/forums to follow these days for good information on Traveller happenings
Any help would be appreciated :)

Note that you can still buy GURPS TRAVELLER ebooks for the rest of 2015. If you have bought them by then, you will be able to download them again in 2016 and beyond.

There is one GURPS Traveller book still available in paper form, GURPS Traveller Classic: Planetary Survey 1 - Kamsii

I don't know if the 5 paper copies will still be available until they run out.

As mentioned above, the GURPS books may become available again somhow in future. Or maybe not.

I am aware that I can still get them, well, through the end of the month. PRoblem is that it's going to cost me around $200, for PDFs of books that I already own, so I'm not keen on buying the PDFs.
Additionally, if the JTAS material gets released as a collection, and the G:T books along with them, I wouldn't have wanted to splurge on the PDFs just to buy them again - and so I'm trying to dig up any information I can.

From what I've been told, Far Future Enterprises gets the copyright and archives of JTAS and all the GURPS books at the start of next year. From there, the plan is to release the collection on a CD-ROM like the other collections of Traveller books. When the release occurs is unclear. Based upon Marc's previous release schedules it will be at best sometime in the summer.

Beyond that I know nothing more.
