VirtueMart 1.1.0 released

The VirtueMart Team is proud to announce the release of VirtueMart 1.1.0 Stable. The VirtueMart Team and the VirtueMart Community have put many hours into this release of the VirtueMart eCommerce Solution. Thanks to all those who have donated their time and skills to make VirtueMart a leading eCommerce solution that is both full featured and easy to use (see the full feature list).

Packages

VirtueMart 1.1.0 supports Joomla! (1.5 and 1.0.x) and Mambo. Separate installation packages are available for Joomla! 1.5 and Joomla! 1.0.x/Mambo.

There are also manual installation packages available for those who need them (for both Joomla! 1.5 and Joomla! 1.0/Mambo).

Although VirtueMart 1.1.0 has many new features, we have made the upgrade process from VirtueMart 1.0.15 as easy as possible. The upgrade process requires the manual installation package. See the full upgrade details.
