Kunena 5.2.8 released and Blue eagle 1.6.7 released (02 Jan 2022)
The Kunena team has announce the arrival of Kunena 5.2.8 [K 5.2.8] which is now available for download as a native Joomla extension for J! 3.10/3.9.x. This version addresses most of the issues that were discovered in K 5.2 and issues discovered during the development stages of previous version of K5.2.
If you are using blue template you need to update to 1.6.7 version to ensure to have a compatible version with K5.2.8.
Important note: (07 Jan 2022) If you have created a Kunena custom.css, create a backup of it. Due to an error, this file will be deleted during an upgrade.
Merged List of Kunena Features
A simple page that gives a check-list of what Kunena will do would save people a whole lot of time hunting for answers to questions like 'Will Kunena do this...?"
I'm sure the info is here & there - in the forums on the wiki etc but you have a lot of wasted space on the front page devoted to "Kunena— A Powerful Forum with a New Direction " - from a 'selling/promotional' perspective everything including & after "Many fixes and new features, which had been planned for past releases but never implemented, have been added...." is wasted space, I don't think too many people are interested in that, they want to know - What does it do? How is it different form others (ie Agora). Is it for me & should I spend time with it?
I'm thinking of:
Link Forums to Joomla Section/Categories - Yes/No
New Article comment/Discuss opens new forum thread - Yes/No
Customise Profile fields - Yes/No (we're working on it!)
Allow users to select topics ot 'follow'Yes/No
e-mal updates of 'followed' topics Yes/No
If is does exist... I haven't found it
Kunena K1.5 may be lacking in features but it is still the most popular joomla forum component on JED
4 most popular forum components: ( stats taken from JED as of 05/07/2010 )
Kunena: Views 375445 Favoured 274
Joo!BB: Views 131204 Favoured 42
Agora: Views 310836 Favoured 206
CCboard: Views 152420 Favoured 102
EDIT: just checked the stats on your link more closely only to find they are wrong and features current in k1.5 and mark as a X when they are included.
My only conclusion is that the information is unreliable (as with 90% of what you find on the internet) but it is certainly useful and Lintzy deserves to be complimented for her hard work. I think it would be better to abstract her table and create a new one, here, at www.kunena.com that shows a comparison between K 1.5.12 and K 1.6.
Does anyone feel like making such a table?

Somebody update this for Kunena 1.6 - its gonna look very different...

Could you please be more precise and explain which features should be wrong?

please check if source of information is valid before posting lol
I am sorry, which features did I miss?

May be in your conclusion, but in real it is not unreliable! Everybody can explore the forums (all are installed) and have a look in front- and in backend. The comparison only lists features that every user can see and proove himself in frontend as well as in backend.

I only can explain that for the comparison on installiert.de. All free forums with at least RC state will become installed - no alpha or beta.
On the startpage of installiert.de is stated in german and english:
But because perhaps 2 or 3 features of Kunena may be missing, to deduce whole comparison would be "unreliable" is distinctive and why I am not surprised about this?
So, who discovers mistakes (in content or in my written text), should send me an e-mail,please, you'll find the contact details under "Impressum". The same, if there are missing features. Thanks in advance for your assistance.
@Devs, sorry if something is missing, I would be glad to correct the comparison table, if you let me know, what exactly is missing. Thanks.
Its all good. Great work as always!
Might get ready for a large Kunena 1.6 upgrade of that list. You will have some editing to do.
Here are a few new categories you don't have on that list like Joomla menu integration (all navigation controlled via Joomla menus), Joomla router integration (multiple separate sub forums on a single website), Joomla module integration, Minified CSS and JS for faster page loads, color coded categories, Joomla version support: 1.0, 1.5 & 1.6 (turns our there are still hundreds of thousands of Joomla 1.0 sites out there), community wiki, ...
The changelog for 1.6 is over 2,000 lines long. We will get you a compiled list of all the new features and functions.
Hope this helps!
