Just want to say what a great job you did. The implementation of the mall functionality is the best implementation you have done in my opinion. Although there are many bugs i hope and i believe with the updates will not be there in the end

Be careful when upgrading VM 2.0 to VM 2.2, read the release notes, the latest news section of this site and the forum, you will save yourself a lot of time and grief.
