WordPress Analytics plugin WP-Matomo reaches version 1.0.0 (and 50,000 active users)

2020 update: There is now a new Matomo Analytics WordPress plugin available out called Matomo Analytics for WordPress. Plugin name: wp-matomo, not to be confused with the integration plugin mentioned below called WP-Matomo Integration (WP-Piwik). 

The difference between wp-matomo and WP-Matomo Integration (WP-Piwik) is that wp-matomo installs Matomo Analytics fully in your WordPress. Rather than having a plugin that connects your existing Matomo On-Premise or Matomo Cloud account with WordPress, you get the convenience of having a powerful analytics platform within your WordPress.

WordPress networks (“multisite”), CDN URLs and the proxy tracker for Matomo are also supported.

According to WordPress.org the plugin is being used by more than 50,000 WordPress sites!
