A question came to me last week. It was simple. Given the column I’d like to query all tables in database for this column (with some condition) and get values back. It was on Firebird so I jumped into system tables and generated query on the fly in execute block (aka anonymous stored procedure).
This article shows how to use Data Abstract for .NET and Firebird Embedded together (and that it’s no effort at all to do this). All you need is to deploy the needed dll’s and to remember about the x86/x64 compatibility caveat.
Here are the relevant PDO Firebird changes included
Fixed bug #48877 (“bindValue” and “bindParam” do not work for PDO Firebird).
Fixed bug #47415 (PDO_Firebird segfaults when passing lowercased column name to bindColumn).
Fixed bug #53280 (PDO_Firebird segfaults if query column count less than param count).

This document states the current development activities of the project and establishes the estimated release schedule for the foreseeable future. It’s getting periodically updated in order to be in line with the reality.
The project’s development resources are currently dedicated to the v2.5 and v3.0 versions, with v2.0 and v2.1 versions being maintained on the regular basis.
As notified earlier, the v1.5.x series is not being released anymore. Firebird 1.5.6 was the last release of that series officially published by the project. However, its codebase may still collect some bugfixes occasionally backported from the newer versions. Any subsequent binary releases, should they be necessary, would be available from IBPhoenix on a commercial basis.
Please pay attention that the v2.0.x series celebrates its sixth anniversary this year. So far the project maintenance practice was to discontinue support for the release series older than five years. Thus please be prepared that the next point release (v2.0.7) could be the last one published by the project in that series.
For more details about the anticipated releases, read on.
New version introduces security enhancements, powerful data export features, new insertion and editing modes, improved project management and a lot of other new features. There are also versions for other DBMS (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, Oracle, etc).
