Dataloss Warning: Google Analytics Drupal Module

I had read about it a few weeks back but it wasn’t till I logged into my Google Analytics account tonight did I notice that my stats had flat-lined on one of my sites. Gone. So it appears that the module author decided to reverse the way the role tracking features work. Instead of having you check which roles shouldn’t be tracked, it changed to tracking only the roles that where checked. In the grand scheme of things, it makes perfect sense, but when I upgraded to that module, there was no warning message.

It appears that that has now been fixed.

I wouldn’t have known about the issue except that I saw a post on the Drupal Planet from Norio.be.

So, be forewarned: Check your Google Analytics accounts if you have updated your modules. The offending version is the change from v 1.3 to v 1.4.
