AWStats 5.0 final has been released

AWStats 5.0 final is ready

It's a pleasure to announce that AWStats 5.0 final has been released.

Version 5.0 is the most important change never made on AWStats.
It solves a lot of problem of low process for large web sites
above all for web hosting providers and add a lot of new features.

You can download 5.0 beta from AWStats official web site:
http://awstats.sourceforge.net

WHAT'S NEW IN THIS VERSION

  • Complete rewrite of update process and code to read/save history files.
    AWStats 5.0 is compatible with previous versions (3.x or 4.x).
    However if you use awstats 5.0 runtime to read statistics for old month
    build with 3.x or 4.x, speed will be a little bit reduce but data will be
    reported correctly.

To benefit the speed/memory improvement of 5.0 (2 to 8 times faster when
reading stats, less memory use) you can migrate your history files with the
command :
awstats.pl -migrate="/fullpath/awstatsMMYYYY.configval.txt"
