Updating Piwik always was a painless and fast procedure. But recently, I updated my Piwik installation to version 0.4.2, which obviously introduced huge changes.
On my servers, I disabled ini_set() for security reasons. Piwik has the following piece of code in its index.php (line 28):
set_inlude_path is built in with >V4.3. For Zend Framework Applications you always need V5.x. Wich older PHP Versions you want support?
Many more admins disable ini_set for very specified security reasons.
In another thread, I suggested to use an own HTTP Request Class, since Zend Http uses stream_socket_client() by default. The answer was, it is already in trunk, but needs to get reviewed. Now we have a new Version, and still probs with feedreading, because it wasnt reviewed.
Somehow, to me it isnt that funny to give bugreports, suggestions and support, when it is such ignored. style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif
Well, I’m used to patch some piwik files after an update. So what. Not that big deal.
No, I said there was code in “Trac” waiting to be reviewed. SVN (and trunk) is a different system.
Thanks for your patience and continued support. We do read and respond to suggestions and bug reports.
Right now our priority is bug fixes, code maintenance/refactoring, and new features. Working around disabled functions and missing extensions is, unfortunately for some, a lower priority, especially when there are more pressing issues.
