General news

The Russian Misson Control Center uses Firebird.

I quote Alex Peshkoff on the Firebird Development list

FYI – our colleagues from the Mission Control Center tested format of
VMT in the following environment
Intel(R) Itanium(R) Processor 9310
HP-UX B.11.31
HP C/aC++ Version A.06.26

and it differs from what we have on windows/linux. I do not have access
to that box myself, so I can’t report what is actually that format. But
an attempt to access it as we do on windows/linux cause an error.

I have asked Alex and is confirmed

Q: Can you confirm this news ? , I have saw it on ibphoenix and then
Adriano asked if is true
I never use twitter (and same sites), but looking at subj I can say – yes, they do.
And they use it on rather specific HW, including itanium with HPUX.

PHPNG (next generation) is the branch for the next php release (PHP 7). There are a few steps for firebird extension (ibase) in order to work with the new engine : You can clone the repository and test php master branch from git.
The extension changelog is here.
(There are a few patches already submitted by Dmitry Stogov)

ps: pdo_firebird seems already supported and is in the list of extensions already converted
Update: phpng is merged into php master branch
