Paul Vinkenoog wrote about the Language Reference Progress (Select section 80% complete in DML chapter)
The latest sources are in CVS (manual/src/docs/refdocs/langref/langref25/)

The SELECT section is now about 80% ready. The only subsections that still need to be completed are ORDER BY, FOR UPDATE and WITH LOCK.
The other DML sections should be complete and correct.

ps: this progress status is related to DML chapter status not the other chapters

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.
