Hi Martin,

Sorry for the slow response. If this is still an issue:

You don't need to go all the way back to Zen 5.2.7 -- you can install Lightning Intranet with Zen 5.2.9.

To obtain Zen 5.2.9:

Go to the Atlassian Marketplace ( and search for "Zen Foundation"

On the Zen Foundation plugin page, click the "version history" link (in the right hand column)

Click the arrow to expand the description -- at the bottom, you'll find a "download" link.

We just updated Zen Intranet to version 1.0.4, which will install fine with (and, in fact, requires) Zen Foundation 5.2.10. Apologies for the inconvenience!
