Virtuemart2 Open Beta2 released
« on: February 28, 2011, 18:57:47 pm »
VirtueMart 2.0 beta2 is now available for download!

Here is a more detailed listing and some comments of the new features in beta2 compared to beta1

- Compatible with Joomla 1.6
- Review system implemented
- Currency system implemented, the currency system has now a currency format per currency. It should offer fixed ratings, but this is not implemented yet and it works at the moment only in the old fashioned way (daily updates).
- Coupons are now supported
- New plugin system for Shipping and Payments
- Updated the All-In-One module, including a few plugins
- Added some SEF
- added use of metatag to product and category
- optimized loading of files

new views:
- manufacturer view
- categories view added
- category view can be preselected in joomla
- partly new template
- slimbox added for add to cart and maybe more

interesting for developers:
- Added new VM paths to ensure that require_once work even outside of application (modules, plugins)
- javascript is prepared now to work with modules and plugins, that means that we have a loader preventing loading js twice
Look here for more information

Still lacking:
- completed currency system (fixed rates)
- downloadables
- media
- all emails should use the layout system, like the confirm email
- standard joomla plugins do not work yet in the frontend views.

The RC release is planned for the second week of april.

Thanks! You made this one public earlier than I expected  :D
Just curious - before I start playing with this release on Joomla 1.6 - did the development team test it on Joomla 1.6.0 or a recent nightly build? Apparently there will be a Joomla 1.6.1 release within the next few days with lots of bug fixes. (Somebody also mentioned a database change)
