What happened to kicadlib.org?

Kicadlib.org used to be a good place to look for libraries.

But now, I am finding a “stock trading” site in German, whenever I try to access it.

Has someone bought the domain and changed its contents? Or has it been hacked?

Thanks in advance for any light on this subject.


I believe the domain lapsed and was bought by current owner. The last snapshot that is KiCad related was in Oct 2016 on wayback machine. The whois entry was updated this year, but the data is anonymized.

I did wonder about retrieving the data from wayback and recreating the web site, I’m not sure if all the data is available.
