Update of the Paypal Plugin

Our actual paypal plugin uses the HTTP 1.0 protocol for IPN notification, and by Oct. 7 2013 Paypal requires the HTTP 1.1 protocol. All merchant using a version prior VM 2.0.22a must either update VirtueMart to the version 2.0.22b or the Paypal plugin in order to have the IPN notifications still working. There is a new release of the paypal plugin for each VirtueMart version.

They are available on our development website, and they are named plgvm_virtuemart_paypal_vm{version number}_1.4.zip 

Security update

Thanks to two users we were noticed about a lighter and more serious security leaks in VirtueMart 2. The version 2.0.22b contains fixes for both. The update is this time very painless if you used already 2.0.22a. There are only small fixes in it. We strongly recommend all users of Avatax to update the AIO at least.

yes again new features

One page checkout as option, at least for the steps shipment and payment. This feature is not completly tested, so in case let it disabled. Thanks to Jeremy Magne aka Daycounts, the ACL is also implemented, but is still in flux.

I would like to know a bit more about what the security issues are. There really ought to be a proper security release announcement in cases like this, not a short notice buried in the text with no information. Also you should be notifying the Joomla vulnerable extensions list at vel.joomla.org
