The most recent stable release, recommended for production websites running J! 2.5 and J! 3.x, is Kunena 3.0.5
Details about Kunena 3.0.5 are contained in the release notes at http://www.kunena.org/docs/Kunena_3.0.5_Read_Me
For more details about the extent of Kunena features see http://www.kunena.org/docs/Kunena_Features
Has alot of features that you would find in phpbb3 but not as hard to implement with Joomla.
Would highly recommend Kunena to anyone.
I've managed forums for years, and must admit Kunena is still a bit behind other forum stand alone platforms, like phpBB or SMF, but it's making the gap narrower with every new release, and it offers something any of these platforms can't: fully native integration. Also, it's not a "new" project, as it comes from a previous one, Fireboard, which also came from an older one... so there's a lot of "forum wisdom" in this project.
It works together with many other Joomla extensions (Joomla Articles, UddeIM, Community Builder, JomSocial, Easy Social), and allows you creating interactive sites, or directly community sites.
So, if loooking for a forum for a Joomla site, check Kunena first. You won't regret.
Suddenly a new site in the site. It brings live to our small club. Members share, and do not wonder for a mailing list.
K 3.0.3 works perfectly with J! 3.2.1 and protostar template.
Great modules and extensions.
Kunena worked for me almost out-of-the-box, having luck with Kunena default colors matching perfectly my Joomla template..
However, end-users of the site don't know or want to learn BBCode at all. Kunena doesn't even support a mimimal WYSIWYG editor having a user-friendly GUI where people make text bold by selecting it and clicking a "B" button, having the code behind generating a [b]text[/b] code. This is a CRUCIAL aspect of usability in my opinion which undermines the value of the whole Kunena projects.
On Kunena forum people are asking for a WYSIWYG editor since longtime and my frustration is increased by the answers they get.
