The Firebird Foundation is seeking submissions from Firebird users and developers on the theme of “Firebird in the Enterprise”. A session submission should have a title and at least 200 words outlining the main points of your talk.
A session will last for 50 minutes plus 10 minutes for turnaround and questions. If your talk takes more than a single session, then it should span multiple sessions. If your session is especially popular you may be asked to repeat it.
You can submit a session draft directly to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions also please contact email@example.com
Submissions must be made by the deadline of Midnight July 1st, 2016. Once received there will be a review of the submitted papers and authors will then be informed which papers have been accepted or rejected.
Today is the last day to register for the 13th Firebird Developers Day, to be held in Brazil, 9-July.
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing this week of Aage Johansen, in Oslo, Norway. A Firebird stalwart since its very first days in 1999, Aage was a founding member of the Firebird Foundation and has constantly maintained his membership and his faith in what the Firebird team could achieve.
Over the years he has contributed generously, but quietly, to the Foundation, to the support lists, to reviews of documentation and to testing international character set issues. Aage’s colleague at his workplace, Kreftregisteret Norway, Svein Erling Tysvaer, commented, “He will be greatly missed, both as a friend and as an employee – he was the only one with the combination of medical, programming and historical skills, and some of the work he’s done, no-one else can do.”
Those of us in the Firebird Project who have been privileged to work with Aage feel the same.
Aage’s funeral service will take place next Tuesday, 31 May, at Manglerud Kirche, Oslo, at 11 a.m. Rest in peace, Aage Johansen.

This release contains two new big features, both focused on Firebird 3. The
BOOLEAN datatype is now supported (except Entity Framework mapping, currently). And SRP authentication is supported on Firebird 3. I think these are the most fundamental new features so I’m releasing it now. There’s more to come.
