4 key distinctions of the new IBProvider v3.4 that make your applications faster:

Firebird driver become faster

  1. Possibility to abort lengthy loading of resulting rowsets in SQL scripts.
  2. Control and adjustment at your own discretion of deferred data loading.
  3. Accelerated work with BLOB fields and arrays in updatable rowsets.
  4. Background garbage collector became multithreaded.

This package is neither part of unstable nor experimental. This probably means that the package has been removed (or has been renamed). Thus the information here is of little interest … the package is going to disappear unless someone takes it over and reintroduces it into unstable.

An interesting story and discussion on ZDNet:

If you’re taking software free and buying support from elsewhere, the guys who built the program can’t eat, unless they find a way to get a rake-off from the support team’s revenue. Which isn’t going to happen. Or start charging you directly for their code updates, which might.

It would be interesting so see ideas discussed there apply to Firebird in any way.

I find it amusing that people still protest at times on IRC and the mailing lists that “PostgreSQL [is not|should not be] competing with MySQL”. The argument being that we should focus our energies on Oracle and MS-SQL customers ….
