Firebird 2.5 package is now replaced by Firebird3.0 in Debian Unstable.

And here is the reason from Damyan :

Please remove the firebird2.5 source package and the corresponding
binary packages from unstable.

According to the roadmap¹, upstream intents to drop support for
Firebird 2.5 in 2017.

Debian has the next major version 3.0 in sid/stretch, so I want to
avoid the need to support for stretch two variants of the codebase,
one of them possibly without upstream supprt

Article by Jiří {x2} Činčura:

I was presenting this idea on this year’s Firebird Conference. It’s an idea, working with some constraints of Firebird, but one can take it as an inspiration and maybe extend it to another usage on another platform. We had quite a productive discussion about possible improvements (I’ll describe mines at the end), but unless the people will provide the ideas in comments here too, you’ll have to use your own brain (you should’ve been there ;)).

I’ll show you the initial idea with some simple speed improvement of PSQL code itself. And then describe options in how to store it better, mostly because it’s very specific to needs and you’ll need to tune it for your scenario.

Perl extension DBD::Firebird version 1.24 is released with a few Firebird3/Debian related changes :
* Fix 81-event-fork.t to not fail when FirebirdEmbedded is not available
* Avoid compiler warning about implicit declaration of dbd_st_finish_internal
* Add support for building/testing with Firebird 3
* Fix a couple of typos, thanks to Nick Morrott of Debian Perl Group
* Explicitly undef the statement handle in dbi-primary-key-info.t, avoiding an error during global destruction

For Laravel 5.3.* support, pleast look at the 5.3-support branch for laravel-firebird driver.

There is still a chance to come to the conference and communicate with the Firebird developers and leading Firebird experts.
