Piwik 1.8.2 is a follow up of Piwik 1.8 release to fix a few non critical regressions introduced in the 1.8 version. To learn more about all the great new features in Piwik 1.8 check out this blog post entry.

This new version does not contain major database schema changes, so the update should be quite easy even if your Piwik DB is enormous.

After You Update

  • Note that the SQL database User used by Piwik to connect to the Mysql database now requires LOCK privilege. Please grant LOCK privilege to the DB username used by Piwik, with a tool like phpMyAdmin.
  • Please use the forums for support, suggestions, feedback or user stories.
  • If you use Piwik in another language than English, how good is the translation? You can help improve the text in Piwik software.
  • We really appreciate if you can spread the word about Piwik on your twitter, blog, website, to your friends, at conferences, etc.
    Thank you!
