@fofr fofr commented May 26, 2015

To be deployed 2 June.

On 2 June we plan to deprecate Google Analytics classic on GOV.UK, from then on we will only use Universal analytics. Google Analytics classic data collection techniques are being deprecated by Google. We should no longer support classic and new tracking should use only Universal.

Following on from alphagov/govuk_frontend_toolkit#194
Part of

  • Bump govuk_frontend_toolkit to pull in latest analytics
  • Remove references to classic tracker
  • Remove classic specific arguments (eg custom variable name and scope)
  • Update references of GOVUK.Tracker to GOVUK.Analytics

(Changes made in #953 used as a reference)

cc @easternbloc

* Bump govuk_frontend_toolkit to 4.0.0 to pickup analytics changes
* Remove references to classic tracker
* Rename GOVUK.Tracker to GOVUK.Analytics
