29.Nov. 2012, released an update to version 1.0.3 when using SEF.This plugin is very usefull if you are using "dock cart" extension on VM1.1.x and you need to redirect your customers to the OPC (one page checkout) when they click on "checkout" link in the dock cart. Without this plugin it will show a default VM checkout.
