cciDEAL 2.2.4 for Virtuemart 1.1.6 and PHP 5.3
We have just released cciDEAL 2.2.4 which adds support for Virtuemart 1.1.6 to cciDEAL for Virtuemart. We also tested cciDEAL 2.2.4 with PHP5.3. Support for Virtuemart 1.1.6 and PHP5.3 are the only changes in cciDEAL 2.2.4, so you only need to upgrade if you want to start using Virtuemart 1.1.6 or PHP5.3. We do not advice upgrading to Virtuemart 1.1.6, as there are no security issues fixed, but 1.1.6 does add new bugs. If possible, wait for Virtuemart 1.1.7.
Clients using the GPL version of cciDEAL, purchased after May 2010, can download the full version of cciDEAL 2.2.4 in our downloads section. Clients using the older non-GPL version, can request the full package in a ticket on our website, with their order number from joomlavirtuemartideal.nl.
For both types of clients (GPL and non-GPL), upgrading is really easy. You can also follow the below steps if you already upgraded Virtuemart, but forgot about cciDEAL.
