Firebird 2.5 Alpha 1
The Firebird Team is pleased to let loose the first Alpha of Firebird 2.5, more or less feature-complete and ready to field-test. Kits are available for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and Linux. So – please test it well and report your experiences (good or bad) to the firebird-devel list.
Do make a point of studying the release notes (available on-line and also in the download kits) as V.2.5 is to be a macro release introducing the architecture that will progress into Firebird 3 as full support for fine-grained multi-threading and SMP.
