To upgrade to this release, download the tarball and overwrite your old files with the new ones. SVN users can simply do an ‘svn up’ from trunk or the 1.0 branch.
Small release re-organizes the layout of the main dashboard page as well as new versus repeat visitor indicators.
This is a major re-write of the framework and is not upgradable from the latest Release candidate.
New features and changes in this version include:
- Module system – can easily extend OWA by adding modules as well as plugins.
- ORM Layer – OWA now uses an object relational mapping layer to access the data store.
- Configuration has moved to the database so no more managing config files. A cache is in the works for this.
- Google Maps integration – plot your visitors on a Google Map (API key required)
- Google Earth Integration – now you can plot your visitors on Google Earth by outputing KML files.
- Heat Maps – generate heat maps of where visitors are clicking on your web pages. Thanks toYvan at ClickHeat project for contributing.
1.0 RC4 has been released and is available from subversion. This release fixed many bugs and god willing will be the final release before 1.0.
I’m pleased to announce that Version 1.0 RC1 is available from the trunk in subversion. This release fixes multiple bugs and fills in most of the reporting framework that was missing in the last release.
