It has been done! Kunena 1.0.8 goes stable!

Approximately 1 month after the public release of Kunena 1.0.7b, over 1,000 registered users, and over 11,000 downloads later, Kunena 1.0.8 goes stable.

We are proud to present you with the most advanced integrated forum solution available for Joomla. While we originally had no plans to release Kunena 1.0, the events surrounding the shutdown of FireBoard caused us to rethink our plans and the development team invested a gigantic effort to make the impossible happen. In less than 4 weeks after the initial launch of and countless late nights that turned into early mornings, we are proud to call it ready.

The vast majority of known issues have been fixed. This is the most secure, most stable, best integrated, and most optimized version of Joomlaboard, FireBoard and now Kunena—EVER.

Due to the severity level of the critical security vulnerabilities fixed, all prior users of FireBoard and Kunena are urged to immediately upgrade!

Please check the detailed release notes at: for detailed information about the changes, additions and fixes that went into this release.

In addition to releasing the stable version of Kunena 1.0.8, we are also announcing the launch of a dedicated community-driven documentation project for Kunena. Effective immediately, you can check out the beginnings of the project at:

All this work would not have been possible without the effort of many individuals and the entire community here at We want to thank all of you who have helped us make this happen, who have given us their trust, and who spoke out on our behalf nearly everywhere around the world.

Just four weeks ago, Kunena wasn't in the public eye and it has quickly became the largest and frequented forum component site for Joomla. For us, this is only the beginning. We know you are anxiously waiting for a Joomal 1.5 native version and now our goal is to go back to working on it—after a brief break to catch our breath from these hard weeks. We all will need a chance to regain our energy from the many late nights that have taken their toll on our lives and families.

We hope you enjoy the new release and use it to build new, exiting websites for your communities!

Thank you for supporting our community!

The Kunena Team
