In less than three weeks, Matomo (Piwik) 2 will be no longer supported. This means that no further (security) updates will be released for this version. As per our Long Term Support announcement, Matomo 2.X is supported for 12 months after the initial release of Matomo 3.0.0 which was on December 18th 2016. Therefore, Matomo 2 will no longer receive any updates after December 18th 2017.
It has been almost a year since we released Matomo (Piwik) 3 and we highly recommend updating to Matomo 3 ASAP. The major new release came with a new UI, performance and security improvements. If you are still on Matomo 2, the security improvements alone should be worth updating your Matomo to Matomo 3 now. We cannot recommend this enough.
The update to Matomo (Piwik) 3 should be smooth, but may take a while depending on the amount of data you have.
- If you have any problem with the update, feel free to get in touch with us, or ask in the forums.
- If you are currently using Matomo (Piwik) self-hosted and would like to be upgraded, plus your Matomo managed in the official Cloud-hosted service, contact InnoCraft Cloud and they will migrate your database.
At Matomo (Piwik) and InnoCraft, the company of the makers of Matomo, we have seen many thousands of Matomo installations upgraded over the past year and look forward to an exciting future for Matomo 3 and beyond!
