I love to use VIAF but I would like to know when was the last update. The page "About the Dataset" has the date of the last dump (2012-07-26) but the online system that users interact with has not been updated - I suspect - since May.

Reply: We update VIAF almost every month. The last update was at the end of July (with records received before July 15th). We are however skipping the August update (as we did last year while we worked on uniform titles) because of some infrastructure work. We should have a new copy up towards the end of September.

Right now, http://test.viaf.org has test files in it from Denmark and Japan (plus the regular VIAF sources). It was built with August updates, but won't be going into 'production' at viaf.org.
