Since Intebase 6 release of the source code, Firebird created a lot of changes and additions to the engine.

The only updates that we see today, are small references for new or changed features for specific version.

Further more, the time has changed, and wiki, and other format of documentation should also be in place, including the ability of users to comment and even share how to things in the proper page.

So what do you think on this ?

This is a minor revision with added description and simple example

Mageia 1 is here : http://blog.mageia.org/en/

It is a community driven project and a Firebird friendly distribution with Firebird 2.5.0, PHP, PHP-pdo, Perl, Ruby drivers, Rails adapter, Flamerobin, and Python drivers (kinterbasdb and firebirdsql).
