Introduction

The Kunena Team is excited to announce the release of Kunena 1.6.3. This is a maintenance & security release for Kunena 1.6 but its main goal is to provide a native support for Joomla! 1.6 and all users are recommended to upgrade to Kunena 1.6.3 (backup and testing are strongly recommended!).

All users of prior Kunena releases are urged to upgrade as soon as possible.

Since the stable release of Kunena 1.6, the Kunena team has been focused on fixing over 100 bugs; including fixing issues with CSS, router, API, HTML validation, issues with Joomla! 1.6 and usability. Official Kunena modules and plug-ins have been updated as well as language translations.

Kunena 1.6 marks a major milestone for the Kunena Project. A long list of open source contributors have committed over 3,000 changes helping make Kunena the leading forum solution for both Joomla 1.5 and 1.6. A long list of new features, various optimizations, and code restructuring have resulted in the most advanced version of Kunena to date.

We continue to put a big emphasis on usability and ease of installation. The installer has been further enhanced to allow for multiple installation and upgrade options. It performs incremental steps to avoid timeouts on slower hosts. It automatically performs actions such as taking the forum offline during the installation or upgrade and re-enables it after completing the install.

Kunena now supports Joomla 1.6 style languages files that are backward compatible with Joomla 1.5. Multiple languages are included in the base install packages and more will be available soon. They can also be installed separately. Kunena 1.6 support multiple languages installed on a single system and, together with Joomla, allows users to select their preferred language.

Templates have now been separated from the underlying code, which allows for version-independent template development. Templates can embed various options that can be set via the included template manager (e.g. avatar position on left, right, top, or bottom in the new default template, Blue Eagle).

The Kunena Team is fully committed to Joomla 1.6 and beyond and a number of modules have been developed to lay the groundwork for future releases of Joomla.

This is not really the place to ask questions. Please read the description of categories on the forum Index page and submit your question in a more appropriate category. Thank you.

Kunena's Second Birthday

Its an exciting week here in the Kunena community and especially for me, Oliver (aka fxstein). Two years ago, we published Kunena for the very first time. We recognize two important dates: January 27, 2009, when we uploaded Kunena 1.0.7 to this website, and February 2, 2009, when Kunena was first published on the Joomla Extension Directory. In the days that followed, the site went from no traffic to bustling with excitement. Matias and I were caught by surprise since we did not think Kunena would catch on so quickly. We had no idea that what was about to come would overshadow anything that had come before.

In 2007, I discovered Fireboard (the predecessor of Kunena) and used it for a while on my personal website, which included doing my fair share of private bug fixes. When it became clear that keeping my own fixes was not so easy when each new release came out, I had no choice but to join their development team in 2008 and started cranking away on bugs — literally hundreds of them. For a couple of months, I fixed and improved a lot of things. The prior development team was no longer engaged in the project and help from other community members was initially rather slow. So for six months, I did bug fixes and nobody released anything. Eventually, it became pretty clear to me that the Fireboard project was beyond salvageable and the prior leadership team ultimately turned off the forums on their site. It was a turning point and a few weeks later, we decided to open Kunena.com and release a long awaited bug fix release labeled Kunena 1.0.7.

I am not aware of any "invite friends" menu function. I am certainly not aware of any such feature of Kunena.

K1.6.2 has not a lot of improvements, it's mainly a maintenance release which fix plenty of issues. K2.0 is still in working in progress, so we need to release something with k1.6.x untill k2.0 isn't ready.
