The most recent stable release, recommended for production websites running J! 2.5 and J! 3.1, is Kunena 3.0.0. This version supersedes K 2.0.
The essential differences between Kunena 3.0 and Kunena 2.0 are
* K 3.0 does not operate on J! 1.5 websites; and
* K 3.0 can only be installed on J! 2.5 and J! 3.x websites
Kunena 3.0 is a project that has been some ten months in the making. Among other things, the main design objectives for Kunena 3.0 were to remove many lingering legacy issues (caused by the requirement in older versions to maintain J! 1.5 websites) as well as to keep pace with current and emerging Joomla trends.
Details about Kunena 3.0.0 are contained in the release notes at http://www.kunena.org/docs/Kunena_3.0.0_Read_Me

The Support for this is also top-notched! For basically a FREE forum this is awesome!! IF it's not the best already it will be by the time its all said and done! I guarantee it! I have tried a few and finally.. finally found something that both myself and my users really enjoy!
Changing template colors and icons is a breeze [if you have any experience!]. There are plugins for CB as well as PM systems that will integrate with this forum very easily. I suggest Kunena, CB and Uddeim for a great system!
Take it from me.. you will be VERY happy with this package, not only from the ease of use but again the outstanding support you will get if you run into any trouble.
SECOND TO NONE... has become the standard!!
The only issue i had was on install, but i unzipped package first, ftp'd it to my server and then used the install manager to install from URL....everything worked just fine, i am using Joomla 1.5
keep up the good work
The amount of bug-fixing and new features is amazing! In my point of view this is the default choice of forum solution.
The support at the kunena homepage is very good. The developers are (hyper) active, and very helpful!
I was pretty sure that Fireboard was a good choice as a base for my website forum. Other forums for Joomla! was not interesting, and now Kunena is the proof that à was right to stick to this base.
Then thanks to the Kunena team !
I was one of the first triers of kunena on a live production site itself. Well i instantly liked it and made my installed plugins to work with kunena!
I uninstalled fireboard and installed kunena a site with i realized i was on the live site and not on the local server without peeking on the address bar... LOL! But since it claims it has many bugfixes and enhancements from fireboard, I have to risk and persue... And did not go back!
At the time of writing this, my installed version is 1.0.6 and on its state on my site, it really surpasses the old sluggish fireboard.
It will be 1.5 native soon! An very awesome jomsocial integration.
Congratulations Kunena Boys!
Your Joomla forum has a new name: KUNENA
Great job guys!
