Key issues are:

Security fixes

We would like to thank security researcher Adel KHALDI for responsibly disclosing a XSS issue via our Security Bug Bounty program.

Platform Changes

Piwik is the leading open analytics platform. In an effort to help Piwik developers learn about improvements and changes in the core APIs, we document the changes since the last release.

In this 2.8.0 release there are breaking API changes (Auth interface has been modified), API deprecations, New API features (Pivot table in the API via pivotBy, pivotByColumn, pivotByColumnLimit), Library updates (AngularJS updated), New commmand (generate:angular-directive), Internal changes (Piwik now requires PHP 5.3.3).

The API issues shouldn't effect us and we are running PHP Version 5.4.4-14+deb7u14, more info here http://developer.piwik.org/changelog
