Stock dependencies (2011-11-03)
The system now has added functionality that will allow you to define stock dependencies.

It allows the system to check when an item is being added to the shopping cart; if there are any other items that the added item requires to function properly. If you where selling software online, it often is the case that a module or feature requires another software to function properly. Take Flash powered games as an example. They cannot function without a Flash player, hence the Flash game is dependent on the Flash player to function.

When the system detects such a dependency, it will automatically add the required items to the shopping cart and display a message that the administrator of the website has defined in the system's control panel. Dependencies can be remove from the shopping cart as the website visitor may already have acquired the dependent item.
