Shipping by Rules for VirtueMart

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Plugin development ceased, all plugins made available freely (GPL)

With great sadness we have to announce that we are ceasing development of all our VirtueMart, WooCommerce and Joomla plugins. Effective immediately, all our plugins -- even those that were paid downloads -- are made available for free from our homepage (GPL license still applies), but we cannot and will not provide any support anymore.

It has been a great pleasure to be part of the thriving development communities of VirtueMart as well as WooCommerce. However, during the last year it became painstakingly clear that in addition to a full-time job, a young family and several other time-consuming hobbies at professional level (like being a professional singer) the plugin development and the support that it requires is not sustainable and is taking its toll. It has been an honor, but it is now time to say good bye!

Dear gwenael,
Than you for the report. I'm aware of the warning message and have already fixed it in my local copy, but didn't think it important enough to warrant a separate release. You'll find the fix in the next release.

Please note that this is only a PHP warning about strict standards (apparently you have enabled php strict mode and site debugging) and does not influence the functionality at all.

Best regards,

Dear Gwenael,
I have now updated the plugin's beta version to 4.99b, which should solve the issue. As it is only a warning that is displayed in debug mode, and only occurs during installation, I will not release a separate version 4.x any more, only pre-release versions for 5.0.

Best regards,
