How to Track Plugin Versions in Use

On the WordPress.org plugin repository, we used to be able to check which versions of each plugin are currently being used. Granted, it wasn’t super accurate, but it gave a good idea to plugin developers. Some time in the past weeks, the pie chart depicting this information was removed.

So my question is: How can plugin developers track which plugin versions their users are still running. This data is valuable because it can help in developing the plugin, for example if you know that nobody is using a particular older version, you can make changes with break backwards compatibility with that version without any hesitation.

Anyone knows any good solutions?
