The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the final release of Kunena 5.2.5, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the last development stages.

You need Joomla 3.9 to run Kunena 5.2.5, the minimal requirement for Php has been increased to 7.0.4. Kunena 5.2.5 can runs too with Php 8.0.

For users of template Blue eagle5 v1.6.3, please update to release of Blue eagle5 v1.6.5 before updating Kunena to 5.2.5. This template isn't designed to works with Bootstrap 4, please stay with default Boostrap version from Joomla!.

What's different?

Upgrading to K 5.2.5 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 5.2 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.
