But not now and not for the Joomla 4 Alpha. We will start with development for joomla 4, when they announce the first RC (release candidate), or maybe in the late beta phase.

Remember, Joomla 3 will still be supported for another 2 years after Joomla 4 gets released. Our priority is a stable system, so we will take our time to make everything working properly. Don't expect a VM version for Joomla 4 the day it is released.

And don't expect Joomla 4 to be bug-free the day it is released.  Serious Joomla users will wait for the first two update releases at least before risking live sites on J4.

Max maybe you could come with an alpha or a beta along with J4 stable release.

It is a great opportunity to gain market share, exploiting others lagging or incompatibility with the new system.
I see the J4 as an opportunity to re-invent my business and expand my client base.

Just my thoughts.

I agree with Max

You need to wait for a stable version of Joomla4
then wait about 1 year for a stable version of VirtueMart and only then develop our own extensions to VirtueMart and remodel to J4
I also want a stable environment and functional e-shop for my clients and extensions,
so I'd rather wait another 2 years before I start programming.

What to do is that at the time of J4 deployment including a stable version of VirtueMart will already be testing Joomla5
What to do is that other ecommerce solutions including working extensions are already programmed.

You just need to warn the manufacturer of other ecommerce solutions that they are doing it wrong.
