From Philippe Makowski , in fb-general list:
Finaly OpenSuse 11.2 is out.
It is the first time that Firebird is in official OpenSuse repositories.
After Mandriva (2010.0 is very nice), Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora (and RHEL/Centos Fedora project repositories) : OpenSuse
All major free distro have now latest Firebird stable version (2.1.3) available in their official repositories.
