All Google analytics users will soon be required to use Universal Analytics.
Universal Analytics is the re-imagining of Google Analytics for today’s multi-screen, multi-device world and all the measurement challenges that come with it. Since we launched UA in beta, we’ve seen some exciting use cases. Today we’re happy to finally announce: Universal Analytics is out of beta and everyone can use it with the same robust set of features you’re used to with classic Analytics!

Anyone else having problems with the new tracking code? I upgraded my account from Classic to Universal and overwritten the old tracking code, then it stops my website from tracking properly. I'm talking about 80% of my traffic was going unreported. I had to create a new classic account and revert back to the old code to get it tracking properly again.
Any update on this? With current analytics I've moved loading the ga.js script well after the onload event. I'm very concerned there will be all sorts of website performance issues if I update.
