VirtueMart 2.6.8 Improvements


Except Realex Payments integration, VirtueMart has many significant improvement in 2.6.8 version. These all are mentioned below:
  • Preventing double orders (3rd party developers may adjust their payments)
  • Shipment price display in product details
  • Better Itemid handling in the router
  • Thumbnail resizing if one dimension is 0 (same as already for vm3)
  • Router is using category model now, better use of already cached data
  • If One Page Checkout is disabled and Show checkout steps is activated, then the shipment and payment selection is only shown if a shipment/payment is already selected. So this give back the old VM1 behaviour
  • Little fix for shipment/payment tax with different VatTax rules
  • Fix for product cache (happened rare)
  • Lot small fixed typos, increased robustness, little enhancements



All of the above mentioned, it is necessary to upgrade a big number of our VirtueMart templates and VirtueMart extensions to be compatible with this latest VM release. Detailed improvements can not be written down at this moment but as soon as we apply changes on our templates, the announcement will go directly to you, so please make sure that you keep all of our news up-to-date.

Thanks for reading and hope this helps!
