We are proud to announce Piwik 3.0.1: a new minor release of Piwik!

What’s new?

Piwik 3.0.1 is a follow up release to the epic Piwik 3 release bringing a few improvements as well as solving a few issues reported by users after the Piwik 3 upgrade. The most visible change is that most icons for browsers, operating systems, search engines and website icons have been updated in high resolution. This was the first contribution from Lukas Winkler and we can all be thankful for this awesome improvement!

In this 3.0.1 release there are New and improved APIs.
