We are proud to announce Piwik 3.0.0-beta4: our fourth public beta release of the new Piwik 3!
What’s new in beta4?
All user passwords are now stored using the best practise bcrypt password hashing algorithm replacing our older insecure way of storing passwords; what an amazing contribution from Marc who was new to Piwik! Several other security improvements were made such as the ability for any user to regenerate own API auth token (without having to change the account password as before). And note that Super users cannot see API authentication token of other users (each user can only see their own API token at all times).
There are also new features in this beta. You can now see Goal conversions, conversion rate and revenue for each device type, brand or model. Makes it super easy to monitor your conversion rates across devices! Another useful trick: If you have complex URL parameters and wish to exclude many at once, you can now specify a regular expression which offers new flexibility.
On the Tracking side: When in your websites users click on mouse right click or middle click to open a website in a new tab, or to download & save a file: now these clicks are also tracked as Outlink and Download (before we only tracked the mouse left clicks).
Please help us spread the word about Piwik 3! For example if you write about the project on your blog, website, twitter, talk about Piwik Analytics at conferences, or let your friends and colleagues know what is Piwik, it really helps the project grow. We need your support!
