There are numerous posts about related products in the forums so i just wanted to put my oar in to suggest that maybe this part of VM could be due an improvement upgrade in a later version? It is such an important part of upselling i feel it should be given a priority for improving.

I would love to see any of these as options and I expect others can think of more

1. related product is out of stock - do/do not show it
2. Automate x amount of random related products from category (select category drop down)
3. Select more than one item after typing in the related item box
