Joomla 5 will be officially released by the end of October 2023. Will Virtuemart be compatible with this version of Joomla?
Has anyone already tested this connection?

Can we update to Joomla 5?

There's no reason why you can't try it on a test site. Seems a lot of people are having problems due to the database requirements, though. https://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f=837&t=1004758

J4 is to be supported for another 2 years (at least) and J3 has independent support for another 2 years or so, so there is no pressure to update yet.

Joomla 5 works a little faster than Joomla 4
After migrating to Joomla 5, practically everything works for me except Virtuemart...

I don't know what the problem is yet
After a theoretically successful installation, each attempt to enter the Virtuemart panel reports an error:
You must specify a non-empty path to clean

Hi! can you point me to J3 independent support website or something?

Thanks a lot!

Virtuemart latest version doesn't seem to work with Joomla 4.4. Errors all over the place. So how can you say it will work with Joomla 5?

@Elboy : Have u reported these errors with full debugging info, example pages and links, screenshots etc?

Strange. We do not see any such errors on any of our sites. Why don't you share the errors?

Ok here are some of the errors I am receiving.

Localhost, fresh install of J4.4. Using casseopia theme, PHP Version 8.1.12

Also getting this error on checkout on Server testing
Server has 768mb ram in php.ini for this site, which should be plenty

#12
It will be the debug running you out of memory -- very common..

disable some/all options in the Joomla debug plugin like queries etc so it will then just provide traces without trying to display 300 queries

try
$catHash = '';

at the start of the _getProducts() in that file

My latest: com_virtuemart.4.2.5.10924 -- line 43 of snippets doesn't refer to a datetime which is why you should always quote exactly what version you are using.

error reporting maximum is there for developers to develop code... obviously it is nice to have no warnings or deprec's but this certainly doesn't prevent the use of the software

My latest: com_virtuemart.4.2.5.10924

Tell me where you got version 4.2.5 - newer than 4.2.4
I have an active subscription, so I don't understand why I have an old version to download?
Is there some double standard here that I don't know about?
