Your previous post is the actual plan as presented by MCTI Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation), your second post was what was desired by the INPE (National Institute of Space Research). The point of the post was to compare the desire of the "scientists" (INPE) and the "bureaucrats" (MCTI).

Brazil wants Japanese assistance in disaster prevention :

Quote
Brazil urged Japan to collaborate in the field of disaster prevention using satellite technology.

The proposal was put forth by Brazil’s Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Marco Antonio Raupp; and Director of Brazilian Space Agency, Himilcon Carvalho; in front of Director of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), Hideshi Kozawa.

Raupp clarified that Brazil wants Japan's assistance in setting up the National System for Monitoring and Early Warning of Natural Disasters, the Brazilian government is developing and providing the use of satellite images to predict possible storms and phenomena atmospheric.

Raupp added that the starting point for such an agreement may be the International Precipitation Measurement (Global Precipitation Measurement - GPM).

This international cooperation programme promoted by the space agencies of Japan and the NASA, is to monitor global rainfall using satellite images of high temporal resolution. Brazil participates in this programme by developing algorithms to facilitate measurements and its own satellite that will join those of other countries in a constellation.

Hideshi Kozawa said that possibility of agreement will be further discussed with Brazilian delegation in Tokyo in March.

Conception of Brazilian VLM-1.

It can be easily converted for an ICBM.

I'm surprised none of the advancements of the Brazilian Space Program are posted here. So I'm adding this video of the solid boosters separation testing of the VLS program:

!

I'm sorry if this embeds, I don't know how not to do it.
They have also just tested the L-5 (Ethanol/LOX) injector, and ard finishing the Launch pad. This month should be starting the automation system installation and testing.

On March 29 Brazil tested for the second time the separation phase of the four first stage boosters of the VLS-1 launcher.

According to this post, an unloaded VLS-1 is being integrated now on the VAF, and will participate on a simulated launch between July 10 and 13. This, apparently set the time for an actual launch for 2013.

According to José Raimundo Braga Coelho, President of the Brazilian Space Agency, this launch will only now take place in 2014.

According to this interview:
XVT-01 will fly in 2013 and be renamed VSISNAV, since it will be used to test the indigenous INS (will use fiber optics gyroscopes). It will comprise first and second live stages only. Second flight on 2014 assuming there's budget for it.
VLM-1 is a three stage micro satellite solid LV developed together with DLR. First and second stage will be S50, and third will be S44 (later replaced with L5 base stage). S50 will be manufactured by CENIC (already does S44) and will be composite. First flight is expected to be 2015 with SHEFEX 3 (suborbital).
Future looks to be VLS-Alpha and VLS-Beta, but going further makes no sense since it will overlap with Cyclone 4. They are re doing the long term plan.
Sounding rockets will see improvements on the VSB-30 and development of the VS-50 (single stage S50 based rocket).

According to http://panoramaespacial.blogspot.pt/2012/10/itasat-1-no-voo-inaugural-do-cyclone-4.html (in Portuguese) the first launch of the Tsyklon-4 from Alcantara will probably also carry the ITASAT-1 Brazilian satellite.

Brazil tested the new 'Torre Móvel de Integração' (TMI) - Integration Movable Towel, with a VLS-1 mock-up.

Is the TMI specifically built for the VLS-1 or is it also suitable for larger rockets?
