Platform Changes

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 2.17.0 release there are New features: the ability for plugins to embed their own license file, and users can now click on the license name to open the license in a new window.

Note: the Marketplace showcases more than 70 plugins extending Piwik but we think this is just the beginning. Piwik is your universal data analytics platform!
