TOPIC: Kunena turns 2!

Kunena turns 2! 3 years 2 months ago #1

Kunena's Second Birthday

Its an exciting week here in the Kunena community and especially for me, Oliver (aka fxstein). Two years ago, we published Kunena for the very first time. We recognize two important dates: January 27, 2009, when we uploaded Kunena 1.0.7 to this website, and February 2, 2009, when Kunena was first published on the Joomla Extension Directory. In the days that followed, the site went from no traffic to bustling with excitement. Matias and I were caught by surprise since we did not think Kunena would catch on so quickly. We had no idea that what was about to come would overshadow anything that had come before.

In 2007, I discovered Fireboard (the predecessor of Kunena) and used it for a while on my personal website, which included doing my fair share of private bug fixes. When it became clear that keeping my own fixes was not so easy when each new release came out, I had no choice but to join their development team in 2008 and started cranking away on bugs — literally hundreds of them. For a couple of months, I fixed and improved a lot of things. The prior development team was no longer engaged in the project and help from other community members was initially rather slow. So for six months, I did bug fixes and nobody released anything. Eventually, it became pretty clear to me that the Fireboard project was beyond salvageable and the prior leadership team ultimately turned off the forums on their site. It was a turning point and a few weeks later, we decided to open Kunena.com and release a long awaited bug fix release labeled Kunena 1.0.7.

Thanks for all the hard work and effort over the last few years! It has been a bumpy ride since I first used Joomlaboard 1.1.2 but now it has blossomed into a fantastic extension you should be very proud of.

Thanks again :)
