Maximiliano Robain  announced on django-firebird devel group :

Hi everyone,
I did just a little update on stable/1.6.x branch and a new release django-firebird v1.6.3. It includes a really minor fix on how catch and reraise exceptions and includes support for PEP 440 necessary to support PyPI updates.
The plan right now is to resume django 1.7 support (develop branch) and then continue with support for django 1.8 .

The idea is fix and close all open issues before merge it with master branch (now master branch == stable/1.6.x branch)
Any feedback is wellcome.

The web would never be the same :


First Firebird / ibase driver was released with php version 3.0 (1998):

The incremental backup utility toolset nBackup is not a friendly beast. An operational misstep can break a database. Under load, in some conditions, it can be a database-killer without any human intervention, especially under Firebird v.2.1 or v.2.0.

There’s a proviso, though. A lot of the problem code was eliminated by a thorough revamp for Firebird 2.5. The threadability of attachments in v.2.5 is also thought to have reduced some of the instability of nBackup The improvements were not backported to the v.2.1 or 2.0 series because it was structurally infeasible.

This article is not a “How-to” for using nBackup. The Firebird Project documentation for proper use of this toolset is excellent and can be read or downloaded from the Documentation pages at the Firebird web site.
