We have been using names from 2013 in our database. The 2016 version has been downloaded and prepared, we will look into converting to this during the week (probably tomorrow).

Update: The upgrading is already in process. Region/state and county will be recalculated for over 2 million geocaches. I would estimate it to take at least one full day. Meanwhile some of the geocaches might belong to the old county names and some to the new ones.

A list of the name changes (3 counties) can be found here:

Update, the new estimate is 1-2 weeks instead of 1 day. My guess was quite off.
