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.

.GIF images lose their ability to be animated if they are resized dynamically/on-the-fly. If the image is a physically large image, and it is resized smaller then it will no longer animate.

For example if you posted a small image (like the "pointing hand" image in my signature below) then this will not be resized. But if the image is, say, 1000 px x 1000 px, then it will not fit in your forum and it will be resized. If the image is resized, and it was an animated .GIF image, then it will appear on your site as a static/non-animated image.

Does this help?

Thanks, I undestand it. but it is odd that image gif to uploading is only 300x170 (there isnt resize), and this image, post by link, that is the same size, if has movement. It is a small image. Anyway is a minor problem. Best regards.
