We are currently working on some really exciting improvements to the Umbraco core, but to know that we are doing the right thing, we need to have some data on how everyone has configured their umbraco installation.
We need as many as possible to collect data about their installation, so we can improve the core of Umbraco in a way that fits with the way people actually use it.
So, today we are introducing the Umbraco.InstallStatistics package. A simple and tiny package, which on install will go through your installation and log all relevant data about it, and send it to us anonymously, so we can crunch the numbers, additionally, as users log on, it will record their browser and screen size, as well as the user-type.
It is very important to emphasize that all data is logged without any trace of the person/site/domain or IP it comes from. This is NOT data for marketing, it is for developing the future of Umbraco.
To ensure transparency, the InstallStatistics package is open sourced and available on our BitBucket account, which also contains sample data collected so you can see what we collect:
We hope as many as possible wishes to take part in this data collection so we can get as accurately a dataset as possible and provide everyone with a even better Umbraco in the future.
