A possible response format for APIs is in a PHP serialized string. This isn't good for many reasons:
We could deprecate it for 3.0 and remove it later.
Sounds good to me too.
Hi @braekling - FYI: we may deprecate serialised PHP api output in Piwik 3.0.0. maybe it would be possible to plan ahead of this change, and make WP-Piwik use another API format eg. JSON? (IIRC wp-piwik is using php serialised api)
FYI: WP-Piwik is using JSON now.
Note: search in codebase for
format=php for uses in core that should be changed (also two UI tests: CoreUpdaterDb and ReportExporting)
