iDEAL logoWe 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. 

Virtuemart 1.1.6 does not support Joomla! 1.0! Do NOT upgrade if you have a Joomla! 1.0 site!

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

Happy customers

Support is absolutely top notch! I had an issue after installing the extension on an old unsupported Joomla! version, submitted a ticket and within a few hours all is working fine! Great job, Chill Creations!
