The following table oulines the roadmap for the Kunena Project for 2012.

The timings given in the following table are appoximate and subject to change depending on availability of people who have given their time voluntarily to make Kunena the best web forum component for Joomla.

 

 JOOMLAKUNENA
March 2012   K 2.0 beta public release
April 2012 Joomla 1.5 reaches end-of-life  
May 2012   K 2.0 public stable release.  This will also be the last version that offers compatibility with J! 1.5 and J! 2.5
August 2012   K 1.7 reaches end-of-life and support will cease for that series
September 2012 Joomla 3.0 released K 3.0 beta public releas
November 2012   K 3.0 public stable release.  It is likely that K 2.0 will not work with J! 3.0
January 2013   K 2.0 reaches end-of-life and support will cease for that series.

Importantly, following the release of K 1.7.0 last year, no support will be offered for installations running K 1.6.x or any add-ons (including third-party templates) written for K 1.6. Over the coming months, topics that discussed these older, outdated versions will be systematically archived from the forum and locked. We understand that, for some people, the task of upgrading software will be difficult but these decisions have been taken in the interests of the vast majority of users who want to move forward and keep up-to-date as Kunena moves forward in line with ongoing activities occurring within the Joomla community as a whole.

Equally importantly, people are encouraged to read the technical requirements article in the Wiki and to begin the process now of upgrading to J! 1.5.25 (including the removal of any J! 1.0 extensions that require the use of "legacy mode") or to migrate to J! 2.5 before support for older versions of Joomla disappears.

I would ask those who are curious about the K 2.0 "journey", to relax - sit back and enjoy the view - and we'll let you know when we're coming to the next milestone along the way.


:laugh: that sounds so familiar! I think Kunena isn't only succesful because of the great work by the coders but also because daddy Sozzled keeps the kids quiet ;)

If you would like to follow the progress of K 2.0, you can visit GitHub . The plan is still on-track - there is still 22 days left in this month - but I would like people to remember that the article I posted was only a rough map and was not meant to be seen as a true picture of the terrain. A roadmap is not a guarantee that you will arrive at your destination by following the route shown on it - nor will you necessarily reach your destination on schedule if there are unforeseen traffic jams or accidents along the way.

Thanks a lot for this roadmap, including all important links we need so far.

I am one of these Users who definetly prefers to be up-to-date. Not only because of security reasons.
In this case i can life with it that you open source developers need often some more time to finish your projects, especially when it comes to such a huge and outstanding one like Kunena is.

For my taste the overal development from Joomla itself is running a bit too fast but lately the whole (internet) world is running faster and faster
(analogy: the day before yesterday i used Firefox 7, the day after FF 9, today FF10 and tomorrow it'll be 11+ ...sometimes i feel like my grandma :silly: )

Keep it up Kunena devs and testers.
And don't forget: Don't stress yourself! :)

greets!
M.
