This is the first update in over a year and provides a consolidated set of minor bug fixes. The changelog for IBX itself is available from here and the changelog for the Firebird Pascal API is available from here.
The next release of IBX should be available in the near future and will focus on support for the forthcoming Firebird 4. It will provide support for the new Firebird data types including TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE and extended precision numerics (DecFloat).
Dia 4/junho eu, Carlos H. cantu, participarei de mais uma Live, juntamente com o Alexandre Benson Smith e Marcelo Daibert, para falar sobre o Firebird e as novidades do Firebird 4, além de responder dúvidas dos participantes.

Jaybird 3.0 supports Firebird 2.0 and higher, on Java 7, 8, 11 and 14. Basic Java 9 and higher compatibility is provided through the Java 8 version of the driver.
RED SOFT has added support of Firebird 3 into the Django 2.2 framework.
RED SOFT developer Vasily Yashkov made a pull request which recently has been accepted. Find details and main changes here.
The new version of the driver was successfully tested with Django 2.2.10/2.2.11 and Firebird 3/RedDatabase 3.
If you use Django with Firebird 2.5 or less please try to migrate your database to Firebird 3.0 and test new version of the driver. Now you can install it manually as described in the instruction but follow the news and wait the next release soon.
Firebird Project announces the second (and last) Beta release of Firebird 4.0, the next major version of the Firebird relational database, which is now available for testing on Windows and Linux platforms.
This Beta release arrives with features and improvements already implemented by the Firebird development team, as well as with countless bugfixes. Our users are appreciated giving it a try and providing feedback to the development mailing list. Apparent bugs can be reported directly to the bugtracker.
Beta releases are not encouraged for production usage or any other goals that require a stable system. They are, however, recommended for those users who want to help in identifying issues and bottlenecks thus allowing to progress faster through the Beta/RC stages towards the final release.
Please read the Release Notes carefully before installing and testing this Beta release.
