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.

We emailed them just before you found it and asked to mark it as fixed in Kunena 1.5.5.

The bug was fixed when we first heard about it, but unfortunately we introduced two regression bugs because of those fixes.

Next bug fix version (1.5.6) will be hopefully out in 1-2 days (depending on testing efforts).

Isn't this pretty much what admin tools pro produces?

This topic was started nearly 2 years ago about security issues in K 1.5.5. Those issues affected Kunena's listing in the JED and were quickly fixed. The latest couple of messages, posted in the past day, have nothing to do with K 1.5.5. In fact that are completely off-topic to the original subject.

If people have security concerns about K 1.6 we would like to hear about them and they should be posted in the K 1.6 Support category. If people merely want to enquire about keeping their forum safe from intruders and ne'er-do-wells then they should look at the general discussion [Merged topic] How to protect my forum from spam .

I do not like locking topics because it may give the impression that we do not want to discuss certain things. That's not the point. In this case, I think it's necessary because further discussion (in terms of a long-fixed K 1.5 Support matter) is confusing.
