As we are approaching the end of Long Term Support for Piwik 2, it will be useful to release one last Piwik 2.X package.
In this placeholder issue we keep track of what to change in this last Piwik 2.X version.
add an admin home page to Piwik 2, stating Piwik 2 will no longer be supported by End 2017 and that upgrade to Piwik 3 is recommended.
mention advantages of Piwik 3 like faster, more secure, and the availability of all the premium plugins (could mention them all).
Then could also mention migration to Piwik cloud possible
We are running 2.17.1 LTS in our environment. When this final LTS release appears (either 2.18.0 or 2.17.2), will there be a Piwik 3 LTS version?
@sgiehl :+1: I suggest we do it once 3.3.1 is out and all issues currently in the milestone are fixed.
Will there eventually be a Matomo 3 LTS branch?
At the moment, we only support the latest version of Matomo 3.
Once we start working on Matomo 4, then Matomo 3 will be frozen and there will be a Matomo 3 LTS version for some time. Learn more about our process in this wiki page: https://github.com/matomo-org/matomo/wiki/New-major-releases
Great! Thanks for the link!
