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.

Question Error 500 but latest version already installed

Well this one has me confused.

I've updated Kunena many times on this server without any problems. I haven't changed anything on this server since I last updated Kunena. Kunena appears to be working correctly in the front end and in the back end as does the rest of Joomla.

I can install and update other components, modules and plugins. Joomla Control Panel>Updates says that I currently have Kunena 5.0.5 installed and that is available. If I try and install the update after a minute or so I get an Error 500 come up.

If I then go back and go to Components>Kunena I see the installation progress bar come up. It completes the installation and tells me I'm running But if I go back to updates it tells me I'm running 5.0.5 and the whole thing starts all over again.

I've tried clearing the system and expired cache but nothing seems to fix the problem.
