Happy Cinco de Mayo! The Piwik team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Piwik 0.6.  Please update at your earliest convenience to receive the latest features, bug fixes, and support.

Major Changes in this Release:

  • Exclude webmaster visits by IP
  • Exclude URL parameters
  • Configurable timezone and currency

In addition to bug fixes, enhancements, maintenance, and refactoring, a low risk XSS vulnerability was fixed in the Login form.

Thank You:

A special thanks to Matthieu, who has taken time off from paid employment, to code full-time on Piwik. As a result, Matt was able to tackle some large scope, long outstanding TODO items, and move us that much closer to 1.0.

Other contributors to this release include Anthon (vipsoft), lmeyer, halfdan, eagle, and pebosi.

And a big thank you to all the community members who submitted bug reports, feature requests, and feedback on the 0.6-rc1 release candidate.
