To increase upgrade rates of Piwik users to the latest version, we can notify all Super Users from a given Piwik when there is a new Piwik release available to download.
The email will be sent to all super users when Piwik detects a new stable version has been released.
Proposed requirements: - we only email for new stable core releases - we do not email for plugin upgrades - emails are sent only once per Piwik version (to all Super Users) - the notification can be disabled in the configuration file (no need for UI to disable email notification)
Proposed email (possibly to improve?)
Dear Piwik user, 'ThereIsNewVersionAvailableForUpdate' 'YouCanUpgradeAutomaticallyOrDownloadPackage' Click here to update Piwik now!
maybe a notification for new beta versions is also interesting: - feedback for new versions can start earlier if users upgrade earlier - could reduce number of tickets for things which are already fixed in the new version (because they upgrade earlier) - may help security (even in beta version)
could be implemented in the config file like this: "upgrade notification: final, beta"
hmmm don't know but maybe this notification settings can also be used for notification within piwik (upper right corner)?
=> set it to "beta" on the test server one could receive a notification for new betas even if the installed testing version is final (because this was the latest available version)...
