UNA 13 Alpha 1 and Alpha 2

UNA 13 Alpha 1 and Alpha 2 now available for download with hundreds of fixes and improvements. Please, note that this is NOT A PRODUCTION-READY release and it recommended for testing and pre-production sites only. If you choose to use it, switch to Beta-channel in UNA Studio and both updates will become available automatically.

We decided to release early builds now to keep UNA community informed and to allow time for developers to update/adapt their modules. UNA 13 and UNA 14 updates are planned to become two parts of a year-long UX-overhaul mission. We decided to go through every module, page, setting, language key... and revamp user-experience. The recent switch to TailwindCSS for styling prompted us to review everything and unify the UX of all the UNA's 80+ modules.

More on this in the video below:

    • I have accidentally disallowed comments to this post originally. It's possible to comment now. Sorry about the mishap.

    • Excellent Andrey! Thank you for all the contributions to the UNA community! This makes me happy, UNA keeps getting better and better. Anxious to get my hands on the live video streaming app... :)

      • UNA 13 alpha is really good and yes I know you tell us not to use UNA 13 in production but the new features are hard to pass up if you're building a new website. You guys are creating some amazing software and I look forward to the next updates ;)

        • Tried installing http. And when I opened the site https, icons were not shown in the profile on the main page.

          I installed the site using the link https, but now the icons in the admin panel are gone.

          Am I doing something wrong?image_transcoder.php?o=sys_images_editor&h=47&dpx=1&t=1640614069

          • When is UNA 13 likely to become full production so that it is available to all users?

            • What is the current guess on 13?
