What's the current status of VOTable AID data download?
Currently at http://www.aavso.org/data-download  we can download data as CSV, TSV, space-delimited. These formats are better suited for manual inspection/manipulation in a text editor or Excel than for automated processing.
If available, I would like to provide support for it in VStar, for example. It would be one solution/alternative to this post about CSV .
I believe support for it was discontinued at some point.
