  • Invalidate archives when visits removed via GDPR tool #14399
  • A new command to test emails #14467
  • Welcome widget shows the new Video #14454

and a lot more bug fixes


A simpler list of what’s new would help. The GitHub list is a techie and messy list of things that don’t sound very important to update for. Thanks.


Changelog will come with release as always.


You are right, a quick summary would be helpful. I won’t have time for it until wednesday, but if I don’t forget, I’ll create one then.

I have now added the summary. All in all there aren’t that many changes most people will notice (They’ll come with Matomo 4), but just a huge amount of fixed bugs.

Hats off guys, great product! In terms of simplifying, why not just break up the list into “Major Changes” and “Minor Changes” That will simplify things a bit
