Flamerobin 0.9.10 Snapshot released with a few features and fixes .
ADO.NET provider 10.0.0.0 for Firebird is available (with Entity Framework Core 7.0 support)
Major feature is support for Entity Framework Core 7. I know, we’re close to .NET 8 and Entity Framework Core 8 release, but my time was (and still bit is) limited so it took longer than expected. On the other hand, you can watch the whole process. Should I do the same for Entity Framework Core 8?
Overview of all the changes can be found in here.

To download go to https://www.mwasoftware.co.uk/ibx
This version focuses primarily on improved testing and documentation for the handling of international single byte character sets. It includes several fixes for handling international character sets. Users of international character sets (other than UTF8) should read the opening remarks of Chapter 9 of the Firebird Pascal API Guide for guidance on the inclusion of FPC RTL units to ensure full support, and the new section 9.8 on Firebird Exceptions.
This version has also been tested with Lazarus 3.0RC2 and includes fixes in some example programs for compatibility with the latest version of Lazarus. Specifically using the “NullDate” constant instead of assuming that NullDate has a value of zero.
Version 2.6.3 is no longer labelled as Beta.

In addition to the minimal feature set of the standard Python DB API, this driver also exposes the new (interface-based) client API introduced in Firebird 3, and number of additional extensions and enhancements for convenient use of Firebird RDBMS. The driver is written as pure-Python package (requires Python 3.8+) on top of Firebird client library (fbclient.so/dll) using ctypes. Driver supports Firebird version 3.0 and higher.
You can download this driver from PyPI or install it using pip.
This version intruduces initial support for Firebird 5.0 new API and features.
