We are proud to announce Matomo 3.4.0: a new release of Matomo Analytics bringing more than 130 changes including new features, many small improvements and a few bug fixes.

What’s new?

As part of the upcoming GDPR compliance project (most of the GDPR features will be available in our next releases due in April and May), we have improved the Opt-out iframe feature and you can now customise the Opt-out text color, font family, font size, and background color.

In this release, we’ve also improved how you can export your data from Matomo. When you click the export icon, you will now see a window where you can select between the different data formats, how many rows to export, and other options to help you get the data you need in seconds (all data exports use the Reporting APIs).

Continuing on making Matomo more usable and simple, we made improvements such as: a better print version of Matomo reports, re-designed the annotations in graphs, new keyboard shortcuts (press ? to see the whole list), and the ability to switch to the Zen Mode (where the left menu and the top bar collapse) to enter the engaging full screen view. Also, all users can now log in with either their username or their email address.

The core platform was also improved in several ways. In the JS tracker you can now record when your users logout by using the new resetUserId method (especially useful for Single page applications). When segmenting your reports and users via the API, or when building custom reports, you will benefit from new date segments. And to let you fully automate how Matomo is set up for your new customers, you can now leverage our new Dashboards API. And as usual, we’ve added lots of new bots, brands, devices and a few more spammers.
