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.

If I have understood this correctly, you did not keep track of what versions of things you were using, you interrupted a FTP file transfer and your site is in a state of who-knows-what? Is that a fair summary of the situation?

No. Not a fair summary. The version of Joomla! was the latest version of 2.5.x. The latest. If I checked the Joomla! site I could tell you what the latest . version is of the 2.5 build.

No, I never interrupted a FTP file transfer. Zero errors there. It was just concurrent. I only mentioned that because I realized my backup likely contains the same issues that occurred during the Kunena update.

The site was working perfectly before I clicked the update link.

For your information, we do not have a PM facility on this site.

No tangles with Joomla, at least there weren't until I let Kunena update.
Thanks, I'll move on.

Yeah, I have Akeeba installed but since admin is also broken, that is of no use.

I'll just figure it out myself, thanks for trying to help.

Hi mamakawama,
Its likely that your hosting provider may have a copy of your filesystems and backups of your database.

You could try asking them if they can help you restore to a time before the upgrade was attempted?

Hi Rob,

I didn't have any automated backups running on this dev server. I'll just turn on verbose error reporting and work my way through repairing it.
