Introduction:

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the stable public release of Kunena 6.3, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 4.4 and 5.0. 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 6.3.0 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 6.3 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.

Kunena 6.3 has been designed to work on Joomla! 4.4 and later (there are a regression discovered into Joomla! 5.1 to handle the modals in backend, so wait the release Joomla! 5.1.1), the requirements are the followings :
  • Php 7.4.1 to Php 8.3.x
  • MySQL 5.7.23 to MySQL 8.3.0
  • Bootstrap 5.1

The work done in Kunena 6.3 is the following:

  • Refactor the backend views to be compatible with Joomla! 5.0 (thanks to ruud)
  • Some bugfixes and refactor of code
  • Replace Twitter by X in all places where it was used and add bluesky social network
  • Replace some deprecated usage of methods Joomla! from in the code
  • Implementation of handle of mentions in a message when using CKeditor
  • Get list of users for autocomplete in search form

Download:

Download K6.3.0 stable here: https://github.com/Kunena/Kunena-Forum/releases/tag/6.3

This means that the Kunena 6.2 series is approching the end of life and will be discountinued, with the future release of K6.3 in stable there won't be new versions of K6.2 after that.

Congratulations on this awesome release!
No need to wait for Joomla 5.1.1 as Kunena 6.3 has a workaround implemented for the Joomla 5.1 bug mentioned above

Is it on purpose that auto-update is not working? Update-site still shows update.kunena.org/6.2/list.xml

I've noticed a new feature to set attachment as private. Is there a way to disable this option?

Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately this cannot be disabled at the moment. This feature is also available if you have PM messages disabled. I will create a ticket at Git.
