    what is wrong with wordpress stats api ( http://api.wordpress.org/stats/wordpress/1.0/ )?? it says that no one is using the old wordpress versions ( http://wordpress.org/about/stats/ ), only 3.2 and 3.3 are used ?

  2. I suspect they fall under 'other' and are less than a percent.

  5. How are you monitoring those stats?

    I mean are you just hitting up the page and screen capping or ...?

    It's possible they're just not monitoring the pre 3.0 versions anymore.

    More or less, but it is temporary — that current stats group is only set up on API endpoints 1.5 and 1.6, which is 3.0. When we port it back to endpoints 1.0 to 1.3 (1.4 was never included in a stable release), we'll end up with more data.

    I don't currently have a timeline for when we will roll it out, but I imagine relatively soon.

    Rami, there is something very wrong with the stats, almost to a point I think they are faked. In April WP 3.0 was at over 50%, WP 3.3 at only 15%. And now, WP 3.0 has only 22% and WP 3.3 has 54%. And in the past 2 months number of WP 3.3 downloads is bellow average from what I can see, so it is impossible that over 40% of all WP websites converted to 3.3 in this short period and not to see considerable download increase (it has to be at least 20 million a month to see such change).

    The only explanation is that WordPress.com is now counted in official statistics with its 30 mil or more websites. Also, adoption rate compared to previous versions is about the same, and yet count is not reflecting that at all. I would really like to see explanation on how this statistics is made in the first place and what it includes.

    I know for us, we've been tracking a lot of similar data around WordPress.org sites. More so on version upgrades than actual downloads. We know sites that are still running pre 3.0 versions and about less than 20% of sites upgrade to the latest version. Also, for sites that have an "under construction" plugin or launch theme, the most used version is still 3.3.1 and these sites are relatively new installs. We hope to put ups similar stat page to WordPress.org on http://www.presstrends.io, so would love to hear some feedback on stats you would like to see.
