As mentioned in the Matomo (Piwik) 3 Development Update #1 we are actively working on the new major Matomo 3 release.

This blog post is an announcement regarding an upcoming change on our Git repository.

On October 4th CET, we will merge the current changes done for Matomo (Piwik) 3 from the “3.x-dev” branch into the “master“ branch across our Matomo projects and plugin repositories. While this is not important for most of our users, it can be a problem if you have installed and deployed Matomo from git.

  • If you are currently on “master” branch and want to continue using Matomo (Piwik) 2, you need to checkout the newly created “2.x-dev” branch instead of “master” anytime within the next 4 weeks. Don’t forget to update your scripts and scheduled tasks (cronjobs) that may reference “master” branch.
  • If you want to receive an early version of Matomo (Piwik) 3 via git automatically, you won’t have to change anything.

The final Matomo (Piwik) 3 release will be ready before the end of the year. If you want to give it a try, you can either use Matomo from Git and check out the “3.x-dev” branch, or download Matomo 3 from GitHub.

Until our next Matomo (Piwik) 3 dev update, Happy analysis!
