The Piwik team warmly thank security researcher Dingjie Yang for responsibly disclosing a XSS vulnerability occurring in older Internet Explorer browsers. He reported the issue as part of our security bug bounty program.

Database upgrade

This release does not contain any major database upgrade.

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.

There was no change in Piwik 2.8.1 since Piwik 2.8.0.

-> Check out this CHANGELOG.md file (in the root of Piwik) to see all changes to the platform and APIs.

Note: the Marketplace showcases more than 29 plugins extending Piwik but we think this is just the beginning!
