Tony announced new version, IBX for Lazarus 1.1 is now available from

See announcement in the 3rd party Lazarus forum for the change log.
Performance increased with 30-50% in some cases.

Many thanks to Gabor for pointing out the performance issues and for testing updates. This kicked me into cleaning up this part of the code and rationalising the way that IBX handles column names with spaces and special characters in them.

Mark Rotteveel published a snapshot of Jaybird 3.0 for testing purposes.

This is a very early snapshot, a lot of work still needs to be done
before Jaybird 3.0 will be release-ready. We’d appreciate your feedback,
but we’d like to emphasize that this version is unstable and not ready
for production.

The protocol implementation has been fundamentally rewritten and changes
have been made for stricter JDBC conformance. As a result the driver
might exhibit different behavior than previous versions. Read the
release notes carefully to see if those differences are intentional. Bug
reports about undocumented changes in behavior are appreciated.

Current snapshot versions do not support Type 2 and embedded driver

Download from sourceforge

or from Maven from the sonatype snapshot repository

Release notes are online at driver documentation page

Microtec is pleased to announce a new release of our database mirroring and backup tool : CopyCat LiveMirror version 1.2 !

LiveMirror makes it trivial to setup a one-way replication setup between two Firebird databases, so that you can easily have a reliable, up-to-date backup at your fingertips, at all times.

For more information about CopyCat LiveMirror, have a look at our product page.

Changes in this release:

  • Added an option allowing you to specify a list of tables to exclude from replication.
  •  Added an option allowing you to manually create or remove CopyCat meta-data (system tables and triggers) from your databases.
  •  Add button to synchronize manually.
  •  If no primary key is available, LiveMirror will now use any available unique index to identify the rows to replicate.
  •  Fixed a bug causing incorrect date/time formatting for date fields used in primary keys in dialect 1 databases.
  •  Corrected a refresh problem : if you kill the service from the task manager, the “Started” label does not get refreshed in the LiveMirror Manager.
