We are proud to announce Piwik 2.16.2: a new minor release of Piwik!

What’s new?

In this release we focus on improving the reliability of our Long Term Support release of Piwik. It is a critical security release so all users are recommended to upgrade as soon as possible.

Discover our new features. A new “Users” report lists all users who were tagged with a User ID so you can easily view aggregate user activity. It is now possible to send your tracking requests to multiple websites and/or Piwik servers. Log Analytics now lets you import your AWS ELB logs as well as dozens of other supported log formats. And Piwik is now fully compatible with PHP 7!

Several bugs were fixed including some security issues. Our official SDKs got updated with bug fixes: Java SDK was updated to 1.1.0, Android SDKs updated to 1.0.2 and C# SDK was updated to 2.16.0.

Platform Changes

Piwik is an open analytics platform. In an effort to help Piwik developers learn about improvements and changes in the core APIs, we document the changes since the last release.

In this 2.16.2 release there are new APIs and Internal changes. Read more in Platform Changelog for Developers to see all changes to the platform and APIs (you can also find it in the CHANGELOG.md in the root of your Piwik).

Note: the Marketplace showcases more than 60 plugins extending Piwik and we think this is just the beginning. Piwik is your universal data analytics platform!
