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.
I'll keep this short... Although we kept the version numbering inside the 2.5.x series, 2.5.5 brings some new uber-cool features:
Smart Search integration for Joomla! 2.5
integration with anti-spam service StopForumSpam.com to stop real, human spam - available upon user sign up and for flagging spammers in comments
native support for jUpgrade (both versions) makes upgrading a Joomla! 1.5 site to 2.5 a piece of cake
integration with the Joomla! updater (v1.7+). Using the built-in extension updater in Joomla! you can check if there's a new K2 release and instantly apply the update
Community Builder integration for user profiles/pages
the K2 Media Manager has been upgraded and now supports image resizing as well! Just drag and drop images from your desktop inside the K2 Media Manager to upload them on your server, then resize and use them anywhere in your Joomla! site. The K2 Media Manager, already a full Joomla! media manager replacement, just got better!
(new) Added support for Falang, the JoomFish fork currently working on Joomla! 1.7 & 2.5 (JoomFish is not yet ready publicly for J2.5 - but that will come soon).
I'm also very proud to announce the the translation teams working on K2 language packs are now 52! Congratulations to all contributors and very big thank you from the K2 team! If you want to track the progress of translations or create a new transation team or join an existing one, check out the K2 project page on Transifex.
K2 version 2.5.5 will be released next week on Friday, March 2nd March 7th 2012. Sorry for the sort delay folks but we decided to add a couple of new features in this release.
