Koko Analytics plugin update in 3, 2, 1.... 🚀

Version 1.0.6 was just pushed to WordPress.org.

Some minor improvements, like the plugin now remembering your last viewed period so it re-opens when you re-visit your analytics dashboard. 📈

Download it here:

Writing a static site generator in Rust, mostly for fun and practice but it'd be really neat if I can use it to replace Jekyll one day.
