We are continuing active development of Featured Products. The today’s release contains the following features which have been requested by our customers:

It also contains several bug fixes. You can find all of the information and updates on the product page.

Your feedback and feature requests are always welcome!

Featured Products 2.1 released

We announce a new release of the killer-extension – Featured Products!

In this version we re-wrote the CSS and HTML code so that the extension in completely XHTML 1.0 compliant, as well as the native Magento themes. Also, we made separate CSS for different browsers and got rid of CSS paring warnings. Other features of the release:

  • Invisible products fix – they are not shown anymore
  • One product can be added to several categories now
  • Added ability to display a product only outside of categories, This can be useful when, e.g. you’d like to diplay only on the main page but not in categories.
  • Added warnings in misconfiguration cases, more feedback from the extension to the store owner, it would say itself if there are no products to display 😉

Unfortunately, we had to drop Magento 1.1.8 and earlier support due to layout bugs in those versions. However, you still can use Featured Products 2.0 – it’s a supported branch.

Please read the upgrade documentation, we changed the block syntax slightly so you may need to update your blocks in CSS.

As always, waiting for your feedback, feature requests and reviews!

Booking Extension – collecting feature requests

Booking module is something to be spoken about a lot, but noone has achieved this as a module. We are going to fullfill this gap. Estimated development start date – 26 Feb 2009. Till then, we’d like to collect as much as possible feature requests. Please feel free to leave your ideas in the comments to this post. As usually, the most active contributors receive significant discounts. 
Let’s start with this thread: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/14973/, so no need to repeat it.  We are going to cover a lot: hotel booking, lecture/theatre booking (with row-seat), car rental, restaurants, services, merchandise. 

Describe your needs, processes, your vision of implementation.
