The Kunena team wishes to advise that Kunena 3.0.1 [K 3.0.1] is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 2.5 and J! 3.x. This version addresses most of the important issues that were discovered in K 3.0.0 and replaces that version.

The summary of importaht changes in K 3.0.1 are:

  • General improvements to the source code and bug fixes (frontend and backend)
  • Fixes avatar/attachment issues in cases where PHP open_basedir setting is in operation
  • Fixes K 3.0.0 modules changing HTTP status code
  • Fixes K 3.0.0 generating "too many" log entries which may occur in certain circumstances
  • Fixes broken links when using JomSocial user profiles
  • Allows for the creation of new topics within sections

The Kunena 3.0.1 release notes are essential reading before installing K 3.0.1 for the first time or if you are upgrading from an earlier version of Kunena.

Upgrading to K 3.0 involves changes that may affect Kunena's interoperability with other extensions installed on your site. For this reason it is advisable that you first test K 3.0.1 on a test site before you upgrade your live production site(s).

For users who are familiar with older versions of Kunena, an overview of some of key differences is given in Kunena Features in the Wiki.

Other plans

K 2.0 is no longer an active project and support for K 2.0 will cease on 31 August 2013.

The Kunena team is focusing all efforts in connection with K 3.1 which is expected to occur later this year but probably not before October. You can read more about the design objectives for K 3.1 in the article What is Kunena?

The team is working towards developing several new, optional add-ons for Kunena — additional templates and features (e.g. WYSIWYG editing) — that will be probably become available in the medium-term on a commercial basis (that is, things people will be able to purchase). Tha basic component and the currently available modules and plugins will continue to be available at no cost and there are no plans to reduce the current features in those areas.
