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 "Changelog" and "Get Support" buttons in the backend should open in a new tab instead of the parent tab. I'm referring to these ones:



This way you are not taken away from Joomla's administration area.

yeah its a joomla issue, I can't add a new page/tab option. There is no function on joomla toolbar, that can do that.

The help section (accessed from backend > Help > Joomla! Help) loads from an iframe which is one way the changelog could be shown. The official support forum link generates a new tab in the backend. So perhaps it's possible? Or is it hardcoded and it is very difficult to do for a non core menu item?

We have tried a modal with a iframe, but because security, you can't select next page, or click on the GitHub link at a issue. That's why we have moved this.

I was thinking a non modal method, just like the Help section of Joomla. It could source from a changelog page on Kunena which if done right it would look like it wasn't an iframe (aka making it feel like native content). To prevent having to maintain more than 1 changelog the Kunena site could then reference the same resource via a iframe.
