The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 6.2.1 [K 6.2.1] 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 6.1.0 and issues discovered during the last development stages of K 6.1
Question Joomla 2.5 and Kunena 1.7.1
As far as we can tell, K 1.7 will work on J! 2.5 (but it's not going to be without a couple of minor adjustments) and there may need to be a K 1.7.2 release to occur around the time when J! 2.5 is released. K 2.0 will certainly operate in J! 2.5.
The plan is to ensure that K 1.7 will continue to work on J! 1.5, J! 1.7 and J! 2.5. K 2.0 (when it's released) will also run on these Joomla platforms.
Have anyone tested this solution and are there any problem in upgrading to Joomla 2.5?
Forgive me for saying this but, just as when J! 1.6.0 was released a year ago, I waited a couple of months until after it was released before I first trialled J! 1.6. I'll probably be doing the same thing with J! 2.5, too. That's just my opinion, of course, and it's not the official view of the Kunena project team. Testing of K 1.7.2 and J! 2.5.0 continues to be undertaken.
J! 1.7 users will receive advice of the automatic upgrade availability of J! 2.5. They should be aware that, if they upgrade to J! 2.5.0, K 1.7.1 will not work without problems. These issues are currently being looked into by the Kunena development team. The Kunena team has been involved for the past three months in building and testing K 1.7.2 which is nearly ready for public release. K 1.7.2 has been tested to work under J! 2.5.0.
A public announcement will be made when K 1.7.2 is available. Members of the Kunena community are invited to subscribe to the category Official Announcements and News about Kunena so that they will be informed by email when K 1.7.2 is available for download and upgrade.
Of course I made a backup first in case it all went pear shaped.
