there was a bug in Firebird that did not handle well icu > 4.2 see (http://tracker.firebirdsql.org/browse/CORE-3447)

2.1.4 and 2.5.0 packages in distributions were affected (Debian, Fedora, Mandriva, Mageia) because they are using icu 4.4

Adriano fixed it and in these various distro updates are on the way

I know that some of you are using Centos 5.
The problem with Centos 5, is that you can’t have Firebird 2.5 from EPEL
repository. Centos 6 will give you the possibility to have Firebird 2.5 from EPEL6 repository, but seems that Centos6 take a long time to come.

You can try to use Scientific Linux instead (http://www.scientificlinux.org)
As Centos, the base SL distribution is basically Enterprise Linux
(RHEL), recompiled from source, and Scientific Linux 6.0 was released on
March 3, 2011

Anderson Marques published the Firebird driver for Kohana Framework on github.
ps: I need to use another tweeter search operator Firebird + Database when i search for news .

If you remember the article : That change is now made to make Faster restores with gbak faster
Both the trunk and Release 2.5 branch will benefit from that change. Also you can read about the Improvement CORE-3433

Also the firebird nodejs driver is updated in the git version please check the changelog and the guide

I have made an example of a master-detail-subdetail application http://mantis.freepascal.org/view.php?id=18491
It uses the Firebird employee-database.There is a bug in the subdetail-handling. But master-detail works fine.
Full Discussion was on lazarus list (asking for a master detail example to study from)

Article is in German but you can use Google translated page and read more about the project

Quote from the Citrix blog also here is one KB article about Firebird configuration , of course there are more :
“I usually don’t get too excited about the release of a KB article, but this one took quite a bit of time and I’m very pleased we got this critical info back out there. If you’ve ever tried to implement EdgeSight or AppStreaming without excluding the Firebird database or RadeCache folders, you know how important these guidelines are.”

If you don’t know who Citrix is there is always wikipedia to help

If you want to test the new firebird 3.x api here are some test added to fbstuff git repository

The fix was “Only dump config params on failure to connect when verbose option is specified.”
Also you can check the commits log for other small changes
