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.

Replied by Matias on topic Unicode URLs are not working
Unicode URLs are not working

There is a small bug which causes some unicode URLs not to work anymore.

This will fix everything else than IE:

components/com_kunena/router.php lines 100-102:
function filterOutput($str) {
		return JString::trim ( preg_replace ( array ('/\s+/', '/[\$\&\რ\+\,\/\:\;\=\?\@\'\"\<\>\#\%\{\}\|\\\^\~\[\]\`\.]/' ), array ('-', '' ), $str ) );

Replace it with:
function filterOutput($str) {
		return JString::trim ( preg_replace ( array ('/\s+/', '/[\$\&\რ\+\,\/\:\;\=\?\@\'\"\<\>\#\%\{\}\|\\\^\~\[\]\`\.]/u' ), array ('-', '' ), $str ) );

I need to find better fix for this, but the problem seems to be hard to solve. Even Joomla! 1.7 seems to do it in wrong way. :(

If you find more issues with UTF-8 or you want to discuss about this issue, please see:

NOTE: Following issues can only happen if you have upgraded Kunena from older release (1.0, 1.5 or 1.6).

Kunena CAPTCHA is not working after upgrade

If you used CAPTCHA in older versions of Kunena, you need to go to Kunena Configuration >> Security and configure reCAPTCHA settings in there.

Older versions of Kunena used CAPTCHA variants, which do not work in Joomla! 1.7 anymore. Because of that we needed to re-implement the feature (which we did also into Joomla! 1.5).

Users cannot access categories after upgrade

Please go to Kunena Category Manager check category access from all categories that it doesn't say Only Public, Only Registered, Only Editor...

This issue is caused from a bug in Kunena 1.6 that caused the Primary Includes Child Groups = No setting to be ignored.
