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.

Important Kunena 2.0.2 Released and end of forum support for Kunena 1.7

Important update: Kunena 2.0.2

The Kunena team has now released Kunena 2.0.2 for J! 1.5 and J! 2.5. This is an important maintenance release and replacement for K 2.0.1 and we recommend that all users upgrade to this version at the earliest opportunity Please read the K 2.0.2 release notes for important details about this release.

Detailed information about this important release is contained in the K 2.0.2 release notes. As with all other releases of Kunena, the installation packages for K 2.0.2 (as well as updated add-on installation packages) are available from the download page.

As previously announced, support for Kunena 1.7 officially ceased on 31 August. We have used this opportunity to also move existing Kunena 1.7 categories to the Archive and, as with earlier versions before it, all Kunena 1.7 categories are locked. If you have issues or problems with K 1.7 you are advised to upgrade to K 2.0.2 at the earliest opportunity

As you will now see, the categories have been re-organised to give a greater emphasis on the essential self-help nature of Kunena. The forum is now divided into 6 sections:

  1. Official Announcements and News about Kunena : This section carries important information about upcoming releases and future plans. We strongly encourage all members of the community to subscribe to this category.
  2. Community self help : This is a collection of the general and "how to" questions about the actively supported version(s) of Kunena, questions about installation, customising, and many other matters that users may want to share with the community that may, or may not, come under the direct control of the Kunena project team.
  3. The Kunena Project : This section is about how the Kunena project can make things better for everyone. We hope, too, that people will continue to bring to our attention genuinely serious problems that may affect others who use Kunena on their websites. This is why we are moving our "support" service more to a "defect reporting and resolution centre". In the past, many people may have felt that "free support" for their unique problems was an unlimited commodity; that has never been the case and we felt it was necessary to make the distinction clearer. We do understand that some people have genuine issues that affect only them and no-one else and we will do our best, in a community-driven, self-help forum context to provide advice as best we can. We hope to be able to announce new services that will better help users who have specific and unique issues.
  4. Kunena in other languages
  5. Community feedback : This is where we encourage you to give us your thoughts about the product, the website, and new ideas for improvements to Kunena
  6. Archive

We hope that members of the community will find this new approach will better target the kinds of questions or ideas they may want to share with the community.
