We are proud to announce Matomo 3.6.1: a new minor release of Matomo Analytics.

What’s new?

Our focus has been on maintenance, stability, and security.

We’ve launched a new security bug bounty program on HackerOne. As a result we received lots of great reports and have identified several security issues (XSS) which are fixed in this release.

If you use NGINX, please take a look at our new minimal NGINX configuration which implements best practises for Matomo on NGINX.

When you create a goal matching an event, you can now automatically set the Event Value as the Goal Revenue for each goal conversion. This is useful when you extensively use events and goals at the same time.

Not only you can measure Websites and Mobile Apps with Matomo, but you can now also create an « Intranet » website. Intranet websites should be used whenever you measure an intranet website, where most visitors on the intranet are within your internal network. This new Intranet website feature means you don’t need to manually configure Matomo as per this FAQ anymore.
