Spread the love

Version 4.6 of Matomo has been released. Matomo is an open source alternative to Google Analytics† It uses PHP and a MySQL database to do its job. The functionality can be easily extended with plugins, of which more than twenty are included. Of course you can also turn it off if certain functionality is not needed. For more information about Matomo, please refer to this page† The release notes for this release are as follows:

what’s new?

This is another maintenance release improving the reliability and stability of Matomo, while also including a number of significant features and improvements. One new feature we think you’ll love is graphs now showing a difference for data of “unfinished” and “complete” periods, with unfinished periods now indicated by a dashed line.

There are several UI and accessibility enhancements, performance improvements, and features. The row evolution will now show the goal metrics when a row evolution is opened from

  • a report on a goals report page (specific or overview)
  • the ecommerce sales page
  • or any other report that has been switched to the goals visualization

Transitions reports can be exported in XML or JSON format with the export button (bottom right).

We have removed the “refer us” feature and review popup and replaced them with a simpler, unobtrusive banner that will allow you to provide us with valuable feedback about Matomo without annoying you in the process.

Matomo Tag Manager has received several useful updates. Previously when you used Tag Manager Debugger you had to append parameters to a URL, now you can simply enter the URL in a form and click Debug.

We are dropping support for IE11 in Matomo (note: the tracking code still supports IE11, this only affects the Matomo UI). with the AngularJS end of life scheduled for the end of this year, we have added support for Vue.JS in this release in preparation for transitioning away from AngularJS in future. With a new version of PHP recently released, support for PHP8.1 has also been improved.

We are grateful for all community members who reported feedback and suggestions, our awesome team of translators for their work, and our Premium Features customers and Matomo Cloud hosting customers for their amazing support.
