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.

Firebird discussion lists moving to GoogleGroups

Since Yahoo is slowly killing its discussion lists, some of the Firebird “official” discussion lists are being moved to GoogleGroups.

Firebird-support seems to be the first one:

Hello Firebird-support members,

The firebird-support list is moving to Google Groups. The new location is https://groups.google.com/d/forum/firebird-support

Unfortunately we cannot migrate the current Yahoo! subscribers, and you will need to resubscribe yourself, in one of two ways:

(1) If you have a Google account, log in to Google, go to the group’s home page https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/firebird-support;context-place=overview), Click the link labelled ‘Join this group’ and follow instructions there.

(2) Without a Google account, you can apply to join by emailing this address using the email account you want to use for communicating with the group:

firebird-support+subscribe@googlegroups.com

You should receive a confirmation email. Respond as directed to complete. (this does not require a Google account).

For posting to the list you can use firebird-support@googlegroups.com

Note, if you are subscribed to more than one Firebird-related Yahoo! group, your will need to go trough a similar process for each of your groups.
