A few hours ago Dries removed archive module from core [1]. I created a 
contrib project for "the codemonkeyx replacement module", which several of 
us prepared to get up to multiple SQL database and timezone standards [2]. 
Since this new contrib module does not yet (?) have the archive block the 
core module had and there might be some possible performance problems, 
testers are welcomed. There are of course several possible implementations 
of an archive module, this is a simple one, which is very similar in 
nature to the previously available core one (and has the same name).

Note that adding that calendar block is only possible, if the block is 
cached per user, since otherwise node permission compatibility is not 
maintained. Caching that block per user and then removing the cached 
copies on all node additions/deletions might be quite expensive. This is 
why there is no block yet. If you would like to see that block come back, 
please prepare some ideas, and start an issue on the contrib archive 

I am also trying to go through the core archive.module related bugs, and 
updating them as needed (some are relevant for the core module for a 
possible 4.7.x release, some are feature requests for the contrib 
archive module).
