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 3.0.0 release there are many improvements to the core platform: Breaking API changes, New features, New APIs, New commmands, API deprecations, and a new developer guide. Read more in Platform Changelog for Developers to see all changes to the platform and APIs.
Note: the Marketplace showcases more than 65 plugins extending Piwik but we think this is just the beginning. Piwik is your universal data analytics platform!
Read more about migrating a plugin from Piwik 2.X to Piwik 3 in our Migration guide.
