Kunena 5.2 RC 1 Released (25 Oct 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public release candidate 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 RC1 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.

The Kunena Team is thrilled to announce Kunena 1.6 alpha. This is a development release and should be used for testing and should not be used on live websites.

For several months, the Kunena Team has been focused on developing the new version—Kunena 1.6—which we're happy to release in alpha version today. This version bridges the previous Kunena 1.5 (which contains a lot of legacy code from Fireboard) and Kunena 2.0 (rewritten and based on the Joomla 1.5/1.6 MVC structure). Kunena 1.6 has many new features requested by the users. Most of the features developed in Kunena 1.6 will easily work in Kunena 2.0.

In the Kunena 1.6 alpha release, you will find many new features, including:

Revamped administrator backend
New, centralized template system
Polls are now integrated
New backend Trash Manager to collect all deleted topics or messages
A new way to add attachments to posts (AJAX-based and no need to edit the message multiple times)
New moderation tools (with functions move, merge, split, delete) with less buttons
User IPs can be easily blocked or banned (directly in their profile or in the backend Kunena User Manager)
New installer system with step by step details of the installation process (and Joomla 1.6 compatible)
Anonymous Tipping allows users to post topics in a defined category completely anonymously (no IP, no tracking)
Users can delete their own messages within a defined period of time
Improved RSS features
New BBcode editor, including post preview
Converted from jQuery to MooTools 1.2 for better compatibility
These are just a few of the many new features and changes in Kunena 1.6. A lot of outdated code has been either removed or rewritten as well.

Kunena 1.6 also works with Joomla 1.6. The new ACL system hasn't been leveraged yet, but the Kunena Team is committed to making Kunena run on Joomla 1.6 once it becomes final.

For more information about this release, see docs.kunena.com/index.php/Kunena_1.6.0a_Read_Me

We have also setup a mirror test site of this forum (will not be kept in sync and is NOT for support or help, but to experience Kunena 1.6 live):

We love stars on the Joomla Extension Directory . :-)
