Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Hello,

It's the first time that an user report here that his site has been hacked. For limit the security risks you need to use the latest version of components that you use.
There was a security problem in kunena 1.5.3, but this has been fixed in kunena 1.5.4.

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Yes, you can do this if you haven't datas in your database.

I hope you use joomla 1.5.12.

In this case, uninstall your actual version and install the new version.

Since Kunena 1.5.x it is not needed, to unistall the older version (1.5.x). Just install the new Kunena version, without deinstalling before.

But ever make a backup!
