Hey all, Today is huge for us... we've been working on version two of Fathom for months and it's finally live. We rebuilt it from the ground up to be faster, simpler and even do more (like track goals). Our backend scales with our customers, so huge spikes won't slow us or your down, and our tracker is served from a global CDN. We created Fathom because there weren't any other simple and privacy focused analytics platforms out there... we just wanted to get all our data from a single screen, and not give up any personal data about our users at the same time. We don’t collect personal or invasive data about your users, nor do we use cookies, meaning you don’t have to show pesky notices to users about cookie tracking. We’re GDPR compliant too. PS: We even updated our marketing site (using Statamic), and there are now 243% more cats. 😸

@pjrvs congrats! I've been really tempted to make the switch from Google Analytics for a while, the simplicity of Fathom is just as exciting as the privacy controls. Is there any way to import data from GA? I don't even know if they make it possible, but I would love to be able to keep our historical data (even if we ditch most of it).

@andrewaskins Ya, you can always keep GA for historical data reasons, but we don't have a importer :)

This looks rad! I've just signed up for a trial and set it up on my site. Is there a way for me to import historical GA data (just the things that are shown on the Fathom dashboard)? Or will it mean I have to start fresh with my analytics?

@charliprangley We don't have a GA import, but you can start fresh (and just keep your GA account for historical data if you need it). We have thought about an importer, but haven't got there yet in terms of features.

@pjrvs no worries. It'd be really useful to have, but not essential.

@pjrvs congrats on getting it out there :D

The simplicity in v1 was so good, that I'm just excited to keep tracking my sites with the new v2 that add more features but keep it simple stupid :)

@sergiosa_la As you'll see in v2, the simplicity is carried through. Even though there are few more features, the interface is still one single page, carefully organized/arranged.

Congrats on the launch Paul. Quick question, is the v1 open source version now abandoned? Talking about https://github.com/usefathom/fathom because it looks like the v2 was rewritten in PHP/Laravel (as detected by wappalyzer).

@w3guy V1 open-source isn't abandoned, we are still doing our best to patch/fix things and have no plans to ever close it down. But, we are also trying to keep Fathom going long-term, so we need to focus on it generating revenue. By doing so, we can keep V1 open-source forever.

@pjrvs Am I correct to think v2 will remain closed source while v1 remains the only OS version?

@w3guy Correct. V2 is for our paying customers. V1 is our community edition for everyone.
