PHP 5.3.6 released with changes for Windows users :VC++6 builds disabled

Officially VC++6 builds are dead (There are community builds but unsupported by core php developers)
Here is the announcement

Windows users: please mind that we do no longer provide builds created with Visual Studio C++ 6. It is impossible to maintain a high quality and safe build of PHP for Windows using this unmaintained compiler.

For Apache SAPIs (php5_apache2_2.dll), be sure that you use a Visual Studio C++ 9 version of Apache. We recommend the PHP builds as provided by ApacheLounge. For any other SAPI (CLI, FastCGI via mod_fcgi, FastCGI with IIS or other FastCGI capable server), everything works as before.Third party extension providers must rebuild their extensions to make them compatible and loadable with the Visual Studio C++9 builds that we no longer provide.

Building firebird extension for #php 5.3.x on windows

Short notes on how to compile Firebird extension (called interbase) on Windows 32 bit (the same ideas can be used for 64 bit too)
I have used Visual Studio c++ compiler 2008 (aka Vsc 9)
ps:
By default php developers on windows don’t have the firebird extension enabled in php 5.3.0 and the required dll (fbclient)
we try to fix that the vodoo spell is to kill one compile firebird stable with vsc9 and send them the instructions how to do the kill compiling but we have the recipe for that too and maybe we can kill compete with microsoft sql server on windows too if they let us

A new tool to import data into Firebird

Guacosoft.com has released XMLWizard, a new tool used to import data into Firebird databases. It supports XML, CSV and fixed-width textual files. XML import has some unique features like support for nested XML files and loading data from XML properties.

Beside importing, the tool can be used to compare the data from file against the database and cherry-pick the changes manually. More info, and a demo video can be found at XMLWizard website.
