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.
The just released v2.6.5 fixes a couple of nasty bugs found in K2 v2.6.4 which was released last week. These bugs were only spotted when using the new advanced SEF options and the new tag normalization option introduced in v2.6.4.
Although not even 10 days have passed since we released K2 v2.6.3, we decided it would be a shame not to release this new version 2.6.4 ASAP. You see, this new release brings some SEF URL enhancements which we know many K2 users will love. To quickly sum things up we have added the new K2 advanced SEF options, tag normalization options, jQuery 1.8.3 and 1.9.1, improved the transliteration logic introduced in v2.6.3 and removed 2 obsolete online image editors (used via the backend).
K2 version 2.6.3 is now available to download or update, bringing a slight speed boost as well. To quickly sum things up, aside the performance improvements, we're adding jQuery 1.9 support, better transliteration for Joomla! 2.5 & 3.0, Joom!Fish 2.5 compatibity and some SEF router improvements.
K2 version 2.6.2 is now available to download or update. An exciting release as it brings some small but significant improvement to "Extra Fields". Users of version 2.6.0 and 2.6.1 are advised to upgrade as we have addressed lots of minor issues, especially in Joomla! 3.0.
We've just issued version 2.6.1 of K2 which fixes a few minor bugs reported from our users in all Joomla! versions supported by K2.
These bugs are either "notices" popping up in various places in the backend or style related glitches. So far we've sorted what's been reported, but hey, Joomla! released 3.0.1 just yesterday so don't be surprise for a 2.6.2 in the weeks to come ;)...
Start your update engines! K2 v2.5.7 is now available to download.
If you're in Joomla! version 1.7 to version 2.5, you can update from 2.5.5 or 2.5.6 to this latest build directly via the built-in Joomla! updater. If you're on Joomla! 1.5 or if you use a version prior to K2 v2.5.5, just grab the zip file and upload on top.
There are no template changes since 2.5.4 so you can safely upgrade with no need to check you MVC overrides on your template.
This is a maintenance release. Compared to v2.5.6, we fixed warnings/bugs/annoyances/gremlins mainly appearing in Joomla! 2.5.
