Here's the first beta for checkout version 0.4.3.
New features include:
Postage bands: assign higher rates for each service to heavier/larger products
Option sets: different products can have different sets of options, so you have the customer choose one out of (matt, gloss, lustre) for some products, and say one out of (red, green, blue) for others.
Accessories: this is going to need a bit of explanation. An accessory is basically an item that appears all the time on the Cart page. Let's use the example of a picture frame. To set up the feature, make yourself a 'hidden' album for accessories somewhere, using the hide items module. Upload a photo of the picture frame as a photo in that album. Then go to Edit Photo, the Checkout tab. Make the existing products all invisible for this photo, and under the "Offer this Item as an Accessory" section put the colours of the picture frame that you want to stock as the options. Then when you go to the cart page you have the choice of adding quantities of the frame in any/all colours to the order.
As usual I'd ask people to try this out on their test installations, and report any difficulties -thanks.
Oh, and I've not updated the po files yet.
EDIT: fixed a minor bug with postage rates (beta2)
EDIT: beta3, see below.
EDIT: code now released to the community repository.
