The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 3.0.2.
Jaybird 3.0.2 contains the following fixes and changes:
- Fixed: Specifying an unknown Java character set in connection property
localEncoding was handled as if no connection character set had been specified, now we throw an exception that the character set is unknown. (JDBC-498)
- Changed: Specifying a connection character set is no longer required, and will now default to
NONE again, if system property
org.firebirdsql.jdbc.defaultConnectionEncoding is not specified. (JDBC-502)
See the Jaybird 3.0.2 release notes for more information. Jaybird 3.0.2 can be downloaded from the JDBC Driver page.
Firebird update to 2.5.7 has been submitted as an update to Fedora EPEL 6 with Security fix for CVE-2017-6369
With the addition of the amount donated by the attendees of the 14th Firebird Developers Day, the crowdfunding campaign for the translation of the Firebird Developers Guide, from Russian to English, was finally accomplished! Thanks to everyone who donated!
