Jaybird 4.0.5 and 3.0.12 have been released. Jaybird 3.0.12 is the final release of Jaybird 3.
The following has been changed or fixed since Jaybird 4.0.4 and 3.0.11:
- Fixed: JnaService implementation call to isc_service_query incorrectly includes type (jaybird#678)
Jaybird 4 supports Firebird 2.5 and higher, on Java 7, 8, 11, and 17 (support for Java 17 using the Java 11 version of the driver). See also:
Jaybird 3 supports Firebird 2.0 and higher, on Java 7, 8, 11, and 17. Basic Java 9 and higher compatibility is provided through the Java 8 version of the driver.
With the release of 3.0.12, Jaybird 3 is now end-of-life, and we recommend upgrading to Jaybird 4.
