We are proud to announce Matomo 4.3.0: a new release of Matomo Analytics.

What’s new?

This release focuses on stability and reliability.

In terms of new features, under Evolution graphs, you can now easily change the period shown in the graph.

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.
