I’m pleased to announce that FirebirdNews site now uses a modern adaptive theme, meaning that it will display correctly in several screen sizes, including mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

IBSurgeon has released the complete trial kit for Firebird encryption, which includes fully functional time-limited AES256 encryption plugin and demo application (in Delphi) to demonstrate how to connect to the encrypted database.
The trial kit is designed for the following:
1) Easy performance testing of the existing databases with the encryption: you can encrypt database on the server and test your existing applications without changing them.
2) Implement client-side security: there is a simple example of Delphi application (sources included) which demonstrates how to send the key from the client to the server.
