Here is the tweet with announcement:
Just added Viacheslav Naydenov to SOCI team as new maintainer of FirebirdSQL backend  to be (re)released with SOCI 3.2.0 and 4.0.0

Originally, SOCI was developed by Maciej Sobczak at CERN as abstraction layer for Oracle, a Simple Oracle Call Interface. Later, several database backends have been developed for SOCI, thus the long name has lost its practicality. Currently, if you like, SOCI may stand for Simple Open (Database) Call Interface or something similar.
