Helper C library for writing UDFs for Firebird in Lua (as well as a small collection of useful UDFs). The Firebird UDF interface would hopefully be obsoleted in Firebird v3.0 and replaced with the new External Engine API. Until then, I hope you find this little library helpful. Any feedback is welcome and appreciated.
For tips on how to write UDFs for Firebird yourself, read UdfWritingTips.
PS: If writing UDFs in Lua seems overkill, checkout the other UDF library written in freepascal.
Firebird history and Mageia story are related to each other , here are the Philippe’s kind words
A new GNU Linux distribution is born : Mageia, a Mandriva Linux fork.
So why speak about this here ?
First, Firebird packages need a maintainer and as I am the one in Mandriva, I will do the same in Mageia
Second, this story remind me a little the Firebird story
Third I’m enthusiast to contribute (may be more than only Firebird related packages) to a such challenging adventure, and in this one, there are people that I really trust.
Long live Mageia : http://www.mageia.org/

Artur Anjos, a Firebird Project member, finally registered himself on Codebits in order to share this presentation.
Artur is with Firebird almost since the project started and has more than 8 years of production experience with it.
I have uploaded packages of Firebird from the
R2_5_0 tag in SVN to Debian/experimental. No guarantees these will match the official release, but may be worth a try for those who want to live on the edge.
Short guide of installing packages from the experimental branch is available here.
