We are proud to announce Matomo 4.12.2: a patch release of Matomo Analytics.

What’s new?

This release contains fixes to regressions discovered in the Matomo 4.12.0 and 4.12.1 releases, including performance improvements achieved by avoiding unnecessary, expensive queries, bug fixes on the new tracking opt out, and a minor security improvement to prevent possible XSS attacks by one super user account on another super user.

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.
