Thanks for the notice. Can you clarify a bit why this is a release candidate for a version 1.1.4. There have been prior notes about a new VirtueMart 1.2 with a nightly build available for developers.

As there were not RCs for the version 1.1.3, can you explain to any user what exactly makes this version 1.1.4 differ from others and requires a release candidate status before a stable release.

The second question would be, how current the roadmap is? It was recently stated that version 1.2 should be released soon, in the forums one could read about this coming version 1.1.4. Is there any way to give a current and actual status about coming releases and most importantly, the features that may be implemented besides improvements seen in the changelog provided?



It is a release candidate because we don't want to have the same issue(s) as 1.1.3 example 'Internet Operation' error.

I can't comment on unreleased or planned versions.

I suggest you try 1.1.4RC on none production site and give feedback, if no bugs are reported we will release 1.1.4 Stable in coming week(s).

Okay, I understand and read about the issues that came up after 1.1.3 was released. Good idea with the RC for this version indeed, so keep up the good work and thanks again!



After having many issues (Which, I found in the BugTracker, so nothing new to report) with 1.1.3 which caused me to abandon my new project, I am happy to say that using the 1.1.4RC, none of these issues present themselves during my test.

I cant wait for this to become a stable release so that I can continue my project.

Many thanks!

Craig Gunn.



i have installed  VirtueMart 1.1.4 Release Candidate and tested at my local machine every thing is fine but at the time of Complete Order stage i got the following error

Shipping Address:   No valid database connection You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'AND state_2_code=''' at line 1 SQL=SELECT * FROM jos_vm_state WHERE country_id= AND state_2_code=''

here i logged in as admin and have no address entered in the table.

i hope development team will note this point.



Hi Aravot,

Basically i think if address is not entered then there should be blank instead of giving error mysql error.



OK fine, now tell me the releasing date of VirtueMart 1.1.4 ?


I too would like to know an approximate ETA as I am planning an International tour for a band and would like to be able to sell tickets thru a VM store, but with the issues (As I mentioned above) surrounding 1.1.3, I would hate to have to hand over ticketing to someone else because I had no idea about when we can see a stable 1.1.4.

I know the developers probably have a million other things going on in their lives, but an update would be appreicated, the R.C works fine for me and solves all the 1.1.3 issues I had.

This all looks great.  I am still looking for the main request to be addressed that seems to get back-burnered...and it is very rarely even addressed and it is mostly ignored.

THAT of being able to PULL or list items from the current store items and sell them as a kit or bundle.  This would allow for better inventory control and alleviate the need to duplicate items in a kit.

When building a parent item.  We should be able to select the products we want to add to it already from the store...or ADD a new item that then becomes part of the master inventory.

Right now, if my client sells an item that is a kit.  The child items are DUPLICATE items with NEW sku numbers.  They have 150+ kits and there are items in the store that might be part of ALL the kits.  Having to duplicate them 150+ times is very much a hassle and the main factor why my clients choose NOT to use VirtueMart.

All in ALL..The store is good..I like it...but this Kit and Bundled items is HUGE and needs to be addressed!

Thanks all

So long, and thanks for all the fish!


Any news on the final release for VM 1.1.4?


Hi, can we check the progress of the VM 1.1.4rc somewhere and what is an estimated release date of the stable version?

Thank you
