FIFTH is run by Jav and was updated 9 days ago to aprsc
2.0.16-g1e779dc. You can see the list of changes here:
https://github.com/hessu/aprsc/commits/master

Can you provide any examples of specific objects that are no longer
coming through? And what callsign do they originate from?

You mentioned "anything *-A *-B *-C *-D", but also that we're talking
about an igate. Don't forget that the protocol used over the air is
AX.25, and that AX.25 source callsigns only support numbers 0-15 for
the SSID. The APRS-IS just sends ASCII over TCP, so it doesn't care,
but these -A, -B, etc., sourced packets won't be able to go out your
TNC.

It looks like your igate filter is:
m/350 b/k1hbr* -b/cw*

It's possible that the stations you're looking for no longer qualify
for that filter, but you haven't given us enough information to tell.
