We are proud to announce Matomo 3.14.0: a new release of Matomo Analytics.
This is a maintenance release which includes a few minor improvements and bug fixes. The new feature is documented in the FAQs: How do I use Matomo Analytics without consent or cookie banner, and How do I track a visitor without cookies when they have not given consent for tracking cookies.
var _paq = window._paq = window._paq || ; (You don’t need to do anything, any existing tracking code will still be compatible.)
We’ve been actively working hard on Matomo 4.0.0, and hope to have a beta release available in the next few weeks.
We are grateful for all community members who reported feedback and suggestions, our awesome team of translators for their work, and our Premium features customers and Matomo Cloud hosting customers for their amazing support.
