We are proud to announce Piwik 3.1.0: a new release of Piwik Analytics.
Piwik 3.1.0 brings exciting improvements to the Visitor Log and Visitor Profile features in Piwik which let you learn more about your users and get a better overview of all their historical visits and actions. Dozens of small usability issues were closed and several small bugs have been fixed. Piwik can now better detect new devices, many new browsers and referrer spammers.
120 tickets have been closed by more than 25 contributors!

This release does not contain any major database upgrade.
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.
Note: the Marketplace showcases more than 54 plugins already compatible with Piwik 3 but we think this is just the beginning. Piwik is your universal data analytics platform!
