VirtueMart and Joomla 4
« on: November 21, 2017, 10:03:34 am »
Last week-end I was involved in the Joomla! World Conference in Rome.
There, they talked about Joomla 4, that will introduce important difference at programming-level. So, extensions will have to be updated to remain compliant to Joomla.
My fear is that, if VirtueMart will be not so ready to be compliant with Joomla 4, my best liked ecommerce software will loose market share (again, after the delays due to Joomla 3).
Can someone of the core developers guys tell us if the VirtueMart project will be ready for J4 after it is realised?

Is there any roadmap about Joomla 4 compatibility?

Does as someone tested Joomla 4 and Virtuemart 3.2.6 ?

I checked the changes here https://docs.joomla.org/Potential_backward_compatibility_issues_in_Joomla_4
I dont really see big changes for extentions(perhaps Jsession)
Old fancybox can have problem, but i think that in all case, this have to be removed from Virtuemart and use a better one.

Hum nothing about JObservableInterface in the list, but when you check, most are classname changes.
