We are proud to announce Piwik 2.13.0: a new major release of Piwik!
In this release we have focused on improving performance and making Piwik much faster at loading and archiving reports. The dashboard and All websites dashboard will load faster than ever before! This is especially visible if you measure many websites (hundreds of thousands) within your Piwik, the improved Websites Manager will now let you search for websites and page through the list, and the ‘All Websites’ dashboard will now load correctly.
Performance was not our only focus and we also improved the usability and design of some parts of Piwik (such as the Updater and maintenance mode, with more design updates coming in the next releases). Log Analytics, a very popular tool within the Piwik community, has received several improvements. Many other small bugs were closed, and a XSS security bug was reported and fixed in this release.

After You Update
This release is rated critical. We warmly thank Security Researcher Dmitriy Shcherbatov who reported to Piwik Security team a XSS vulnerability which has been fixed in Piwik 2.13.0.
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.
In this 2.13.0 release there are breaking API changes, API deprecations, APIs improvements, New commmands, 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 45 plugins extending Piwik but we think this is just the beginning!
