Kunena 5.1.18 Released (30 Jun 2020)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.1.18 [K 5.1.18] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.1 and issues discovered during the development stages of K 5.1.
Idea Kunena 1.6 known issues
- mootools migration plugin causing conflict: In preparation of Kunena for Joomla 1.6 we are using the latest mootools 1.2 plugin for Joomla 1.5 - a conflict is causing a few of our functions to fail on java script errors: e.g. form validation and polls - as soon as a bugfix has been provided by the Joomla core dev team, we will update Kunena.com and release Kunena 1.6.0 Beta
still wish that i can write my forum signature through a jomsocial plugin and do it from my jomsocial profile
But like peetree21 said, I would start using it only in the live site if I was skilled enough to do things manually -- with or without help of devs. Most of our current live site testers have direct contact to our developers by Skype chats.
Anyway, it's up to you if you want to give K1.6 alpha/beta a try. If it works in the test site without issues, it's highly likely that it does the same in your production site.

Kunena 1.6 migrates ALL data to the new kunena tables structure. The old fb tables are kept as a backup copy.
Randal wrote: Yes, I was thinking that way. So.. if i uninstall K 1.6 and install 1.5.x it will be still working with fb_ tables like before?
Yes it does, but be careful:
Any data entered while on 1.6 will not make it back to the old fb tables and will appear to be missing. Also when you reinstall 1.6 it will see the existing 1.6 tables and will not perform another data migration. Otherwise ever future 1.6 upgrade would migrate old data over and over, potentially overriding new changes.
So if you need to go back you have to make a conscious decision to do so and when back on 1.5 you really should drop all 1.6 tables before you want to upgrade again. This will require access to the underlying database, good backups and technical skills that many normal site admins might not posses. This definitely falls into the category of advanced...
