As you may have noticed, debian experimental got firebird2.0 (2.0.4) and
firebird2.1 (2.1.0).

I would really appreciate if you give these some testing.

2.0.4 is more urgent as this is what I very much want to release with
Lenny.

2.1.0 is possible for Lenny too, especially if 2.1.1 comes out soon.

Thanks in advance.

It is my pleasure to announce the widest architecture coverage for
firebird ever – amd64, arm, i386, ia64, mips, mipsel, powerpc, sparc
and amd64/i386 kfreebsd. Thanks to all porters! I hope alpha, armel,
m68k and s390 will get some porting attention too.

Testing more uncommon ports is also much appreciated.

Here is howto use it in debian

for the moment i have this in debian unstable

/etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main

Add:

deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental main
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ experimental main

Then:

# aptitude update
# aptitude install -t experimental firebird2.0-classic
… tests … :)
# aptitude install -t experimental firebird2.0-super
… tests …. and same for firebird2.1-super/classic
