This is just to let you know that I’m making time available for the Language Reference this year. I’m working on the DML chapter now, and I’m somewhere in the middle of the SELECT statement. All the others are finished (the other DML statements, that is – not the other chapters!)
I will do my utmost to have a “basic” Language Reference ready this year, i.e. possibly without all the details on Dialect 1 and other things that people can hopefully live without for a while (or grab the IB6 LangRef if they can’t).
Once finished, updating it to Firebird 3 shouldn’t be a hell of a job.
But it ain’t finished yet.
