I would like to stop receiving new message notifications from a certain Whatsapp group. Is it possible?
Since WhatsApp version 2.11.399 and above for Android you can disable notifications when group is muted.
You won't receive any notifications now from this group on your status bar.

The only thing you can do is to go into the Whatsapp group you want to mute. Then select
1 Year and uncheck
Unfortunately there is no solution where you disable notifications from one group and not the other.
However, if your question was "I want to get notifications only for individual messages and not group messages" (which was my situation that drove me to this page), here is an answer that may be helpful for other people browsing this page:
Now, messages from individuals will appear as popup messages on your phone, so you sure won't miss them. Other than this, WhatsApp won't bug you for anything else, including notifications of group messages.
In iPhone, you can solve the problem. Open group conversation. Click on group icon, then custom notification change for custom notification on. Change to sound silent and no vibration.
In Android, you can't solve the problem; only by turn off all notifications.
In the Group Info page, go to "Custom Notification", then change it to disable sound, and disable Alert. maybe that will help?
In essence you're asking about how to accomplish something with a specific piece of software that isn't a part of the native functions in that piece of software. It's like asking "how do I log into ICQ with Skype" -- well, it's not going to happen unless you can modify Skype to begin with. Unless Whatsapp is open source and you can hire a developer to write the function you need for you, or there is other software available for accessing the Whatsapp network where this functionality exists or can be added, you're not going to solve this no matter how high of a bounty you set on it.
The most pragmatic and realistic approach is to bug the Whatsapp developers about this until they add the function you want to the software (or stop forcing notifications).
