Differences between the STS and LTS version of Piwik PRO

Piwik PRO On-premise is available in two versions: STS (short-term support) and LTS (long-term support). The STS version is updated whenever the new release of Piwik PRO appears. The LTS version is updated once a year to the latest version of Piwik PRO. Because of this update schedule, the STS and LTS versions are different: 

  • The current version of the LTS is 9.0.5.
  • The current version of the STS is 12.0.0.
