AWStats 5.4 Beta is ready

AWStats 5.4 Beta is ready

I am pleased to announce that AWStats 5.4 beta is ready.

Version 5.4 is an update that fix minor bugs and add new
features.

This new version is for the moment a beta version. If you
look for a stable version, please use 5.3.

You can download 5.4 beta from AWStats official web site:
http://awstats.sourceforge.net
Beta version is available in tgz package only.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW BEFORE TO UPGRADE:

Note 1:
Old deprecated values for -lang option (-lang=0, -lang=1...) has been
removed. Use -lang=code_language instead (-lang=en, -lang=fr, ...).
Note 2:
Old deprecated -month=year option must be replaced by -month=all when
used on command line.
Note 3:
The tooltips feature is now stored into the plugin "tooltips". So you
must enable this plugin by adding the line
LoadPlugin="tooltips"
into the config file, to have tooltips enabled.
