Upgrade WordPress.com Stats for the New Sparkline Feature

Believe it or not, self-hosted WordPress blogs are getting first access to a cool new feature of the WordPress.com Stats plugin. It’s called Sparkline and it adds a tiny bar chart to the WordPress 3.1 admin bar at the top of the page.

The sparkline feature displays stats for the last 48 hours and uses dark and light colored bars to represent daylight and nighttime hours based on your site’s time zone. This is being released just ahead of WordPress 3.1. Upgrade to WordPress.com Stats version 1.8 to start taking advantage of the new feature!
