VirtueMart is 2! Happy Anniversary!
The team is very happy to announce the second birthday of VirtueMart 2.
Within the two last years more than 1.5 million downloads have been made. Each release included massive improvements with constant and steady development. We are happy to know that the vm2 ecosystem is running well and there are so many extensions that adds value to VirtueMart, like payment and shipment systems, SEM, product builder and so much more.
VirtueMart 2.2 is on the way and we have reached already at least one milestone of the roadmap. We pay a lot attention on getting a more robust and compatible code. The changes are often not visible and just noticeable by developers working with it. Our goals for next year:
- Enhanced customfields (already developed, needs to be tested)
- enhanced cart (less code, more secure, easier to extend, more flexible, simpler OPCs)
- joomla 3 compatibility (added vmText, vmRequest, vmCheckToken, ...)
- jquery 1.8 (same as j3 uses)
- better encapsulated js
- fine grained rights management using the joomla ACL (Access Control List)
- JformFields for payment/shipment plugins
