After the release of VirtueMart 1.0.3 users discovered some annoying bugs (I wish we had found them before the release). But as always, we can quickly fix those bugs and give you a solution.

It is planned to release another maintenance release (VirtueMart version 1.0.4) soon, which contains all those bug fixes.

Now to the problems and their solutions:

Session problems, mixed up cart, etc. [Task #593], Problem description

Can't install VirtueMart after uninstall

Prices do not show for some users (quick and dirty solution, a better one will be included in 1.0.4)

I really need help in release management. Please contact me if you're interested.

Another interesting enhancing modification for VirtueMart has been recently developed and released on the forum: the Invoice/Receipt/DeliveryNote Addon.

The author, Ingemar (aka Mr_Smurf), writes about it: "It acts as a plugin for order.order_print (The order details page for the administrator) and adds a new tab where you can create invoices, receipts and delivery notes in pdf."

Grab your copy from the forum topic if you like. It can't be installed as a plugin or component, but you will need to upload and modify some files and change the database structure by hand.

Because it's so useful, this addon is expected to be added into the official VirtueMart distribution and will be available with the next minor release (VirtueMart 1.1).

Thanks to Ingemar in this special case and all the other contributors of "mods/tweaks/hacks" for VirtueMart!


I just wanted to let you know how impressed I am with Virtuemart now. I had toyed around with Virtuemart earlier in 2008 and it is amazing at the difference between there and now. You people are doing great work!
