AWStats 5.4 final has been released

AWStats 5.4 final is ready

I am pleased to announce that AWStats 5.4 final has been released.
Version 5.4 is an update that fix minor bugs and add new features.
You can download 5.4 from AWStats official web site:


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
into the config file, to have tooltips enabled.
