Firebird Yahoogroups archive

Mark Rotteveel posted on twitter:

In case anyone is interested in the archive of Firebird mailing lists that were hosted on Yahoo Groups: … (up to the 14th of December 2019)

I’m considering the idea to also add messages after the 14th of December 2019 (when the Yahoo Groups archive closed down) and the final shutdown of Yahoo Groups at the end of 2020.

Tutorial to use Firebird on Android

Jan Baumgarten wrote a tutorial on how to create a simple application using Delphi + ZeosLib and Firebird 4RC1 on Android devices.

Firebird binaries for Android are around for quite some time as “test” releases, but there is a lack of information about how to use it in Delphi applications. Well, seems that no more 😉
