    First beta of K2 version 3 is here
    Wow! What a ride!

    The first public beta release of K2 version 3 is finally here!

    It's been more than a year's work so far designing the application and actually building it, and now we're just a few months away from the final stable 3.0.0 release!

    This beta release is now available for testers and early adopters but it is NOT recommended for production websites. There are quite a few things to iron out (from parameter inheritance to frontend templates to the actual UI) and we'll use all the help we can get from your feedback in order to complete version 3.0.0.

    First short video preview of K2 version 3
    Here's a short demo video, showcasing the responsiveness of the new UI. Yeap, it feels like a desktop grade app. K2 v3.x is running on a remote (busy) dev server.

    In this first video, I'm browsing and filtering a list of 100 K2 items, by using the top filters as well as the pagination buttons. Then I switch to "infinite scrolling" mode (no pagination, just a stream of all items).

    Of course there are various things to "iron out" - design wise - and small bugs, but the functionality is ready!

    K2 v2.6.8 released - what's coming in v2.7.0 & a v3 update!
    K2 version 2.6.8 is now available to download for everyone. This is a maintenance update and it includes performance optimizations & bug fixes. The highlight of this release is the switch to the InnoDB storage engine for new installations of K2. In non-geek terms this means a lot better database read/write performance on websites with high traffic and/or large number of K2 items, comments etc.

    We also have a new downloads page :)
