The most recent stable release, recommended for production websites running J! 3.9 , is Kunena 5.1.17

Details about Kunena 5.1 are contained in the release notes at https://www.kunena.org/blog

Functionality
Provides all features I need, and more. Deciding factor for me was that many extension providers use Kunena themselves for support forums.
Ease of use
Easy for end-users to use. Installing and setting up not so obvious, but OK for a free open-source product.
Support
OK for a free open-source product.
Documentation
Not so good, but once again, this is a free open-source product.
I used this to: Support forum for a small software company.

Exellent

Ease of use

Works Well

Functionality
A good Forum extension. You can build a complete forum with that, in a very short time.
Ease of use
Ok to use, maybe a little confuse to beginners. With time and test it's get easier. Could have a better interface.
Documentation
Have some tutorials, but they are not practical guides, only explain (more or less) the features. Could be much better in this sense.
I used this to: Build a Forum for an enterprise site integrated with Community Builder.

Support Site not easy to use



Posted on 17 January 2017
Functionality
The functionality of the forum is exceptional; does what many do not. But has some issues.
Ease of use
Relatively easy to use; takes a bit to find some of the config settings.
Support
New forum makes support a headache; even browsing for Q&A is a headache due to color scheme and appalling layout.
Documentation
Again read above; the site is a mess.
I registered to post a question; but not allowed to post or reply or anything.
I used this to: Currently using for test site; unfortunately due to attachment names being truncated; will probably have to try something else; as users have no idea as to what the attachment is ie /home/....a.pdf means nothing to a user.

The new version not so good



Posted on 06 December 2016
Functionality
Functionality is good, the new design is though quite a mess.
Ease of use
Not to difficult, but setting it with Joomla is not a one step process.
Support
Excellent for a free product
Documentation
Good
I used this to: I used this for a forum for jewelry

One of the best

Functionality
Simply the best forum for Joomla
Ease of use
Quite easy, but there is place for improvement on the settings page.
Support
Personal support is ok, but for the whole project is good.
Documentation
Well documented
I used this to: feedback and discussion area for customers

Disappointing



Posted on 21 November 2016
Functionality
Unable to test due to display issues
Ease of use
Seems ok on the admin side, but the mess on the frontend makes it a disaster
Support
Hopeless; registered for forum, not allowed to post new to ask questions
Documentation
Looks great. Like the big mac. Promises much, delivers little
I used this to: Couldn't use it. The front end display is a complete mess.
Ease of use
Broke the initial installation I had working...
Support
I used this to: Used to have a functioning forum... but this new release... can't even get it to work now... I give up.
