What's upcoming on the next big version: Kunena 5.0?
Because of the substantial changes that this new version introduces (compared with K 4.0), We will tell you what you can expect on the new version.
Upgrading to K 5.0 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 5.0 on a test site before you upgrade your live production site(s). At this stage the team is not treating interoperability with other Joomla extensions as the topmost priority. The main priority at this time is about installation/upgrade and operability as a standalone Joomla component.
These are the main changes with K4.0
- No longer support on J1.6 - J3.4.2. Thats mean the installer will stop if you not have J3.4.3 or newer
- Removing php 5.3/5.4 support. The 5.3/5.4 support has been depricated. You should update to php5.6
- Blue eagle/ none hmvc templates will be deprecated, and no longer working on K5.0
- There will be 3 templates included in the main package.
1) New template, for none bootstrap templates.
2) Crypsis, for default Joomla bootstrap support.
3) CrypsisB3, for bootstrap 3 templates
- Remove all deprecated Joomla and Kunena code
- New featues:
- Social share
- Autosubscription (* Only allowed for B2B)
- Rating topics
- WYSIWYG editor plugin more coming in the later versions.
Changes to the operation of the forum at this website following the release of K 5.0
New website is coming soon, when the last features are done. The template is already finished, and waiting for the final changes.
New Docs is also coming on the big change. We have improved many docs, and removed all the depricated Kunena/Joomla versions.
Also we will update our docs, for creating new templates/plugins/modules.
Plugins and modules will be updated. K5.0 will use the default bootstrap core styling also none bootstrap style, like before.
