AWStats 5.9 final has been released

AWStats 5.9 final is ready

I am pleased to announce that AWStats 5.9 final has been released.

Because a lot of changes were already ready in 5.9 before I officialy release the 5.8, I decided to release directly to 5.9. Version 5.9 (that include 5.8) is an update that fix minor bugs and add new features.
You can download 5.9 from AWStats official web site: http://awstats.sourceforge.net

One of the most important new feature are the webmin module and the PDF export.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE THE UPGRADE:

Nothing

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AFTER THE UPGRADE:

The ShowLinksToWhoIs parameter has been removed since 5.7. You must enable the
plugin 'hostinfo' to get the same result, if it was used. Note 2:
If upgrading from 5.5 or lower, you should remove the "robots.txt" and
"favicon.ico" entries in the SkipFiles parameter in your config files after
updgrade. If not done, the "Add to favourites" feature won't work. Note 3:
To have the screen size and misc report working, you must add the following tag
<script language=javascript src="/js/awstats_more_tracker.js"></script>
in your home page.
