The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.2.2 [K 6.2.2] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 4.3.x/4.4.x/5.0.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 6.1 / K 6.2 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.2
Question Kunena 3.0.2 Released
Kunena 3.0.2 [K 3.0.2] is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 2.5 and J! 3.x. This version addresses several important issues that were discovered in K 3.0.1 and replaces that version.
This version of Kunena coincides with the simultaneous release of an updated language pack, downloaded separately, for deployment on non-English websites. The release of this version does not not coincide with the release of other Kunena Add-ons that have not been updated at this time and that may or may not be updated for this version.
In general, Kunena Add-ons designed for previous versions of K 3.x should interoperate with this version of Kunena; in general, Kunena Add-ons designed for older major versions of Kunena will not interoperate with this version of Kunena.
The summary of important changes in K 3.0.2 are:
- Fixes attachment file renaming issues
- Fixes bug in user profile that prevented use of http:// in specifying users' website URLs
- Fixes birthdays displaying incorrectly
- Fixes SSL issues with HTTP objects (Gravatars and YouTube videos)
- Register CKunenaLink class (JLoader) to allow old templates to work
- Fixes BBcode issues : size in image link and bold on center
- Change on SEO Meta Description Generators
If K 3.0 relied on PHP 5.2 then Kunena would lose its compatibility with Joomla and, because of that, Kunena would no longer remain the most popular extension that people download from the JED . That's just stating a simple fact.
As more and more people gravitate away from J! 2.5 into J! 3.x, the requirement is now to switch the dependency to the latest versions of PHP. If webhosting providers are reluctant or unwilling to upgrade their services to meet the needs of their customers, it also follows that people will search elsewhere for webhosting providers who are more responsive to their customers' needs.
To cut a long story short, K 3.0 (and, looking into the future) needs PHP 5.3.
