AWStats 2.24 Beta is ready

AWStats 2.24 Beta is ready

The AWStats Group is pleased to announce that AWStats 2.24 beta is ready.

Version 2.24 has a lot of enhancements. Most of them are to make this software
easier to use. I still didn't include daily statistics in this version but this will be part of the 2.3.
The 2.24 beta version is available since a long time ago so it has already been
tested by a large number of users, so this beta phase should be very short and
the 2.24 release should be available very soon.
Thanks for your feedback about this version.

You can download 2.24 beta from AWStats official web site:
