Jason Wharton is the new elected President of the Firebird Foundation

News via LinkedIn :

I’m grateful to announce that I was recently elected to be the President of the Firebird Foundation!

For me this is a great honor and privilege as I have been heavily involved with Firebird SQL ever since its very beginnings. I even played a significant role in the events leading up to the open sourcing of InterBase.

This database is on a solid foundation! If we really get the attention we deserve, and attract some additional talent to add to our dedicated team of developers, it will be amazing to see what we continue to accomplish over the years.

I would especially like to begin reaching out to companies who would be open to becoming sponsors of our ongoing development.

I welcome contact from large corporations looking to improve their bottom-line by adopting Firebird in their embedded devices and everything in between, all the way up to mid-ranged muti-terrabyte datastores.

Firebird’s versatility and light footprint and low maintenance make it a must-have database tool for the industry today.

IBX 2.3.3 is now available for download

MWA Software is pleased to announce that release 2.3.3 of IBX for Lazarus is now available for download from https://mwasoftware.co.uk/ibx. This release continues to track Lazarus 2.0 updates. Recent updates to the LCL TDBLookupComboBox have necessitated further changes to TIBLookupComboEditBox in order to ensure that TIBLookupComboEditBox continues to work when the DataSource is nil (i.e. with only a ListSource).

Otherwise, 2.3.3 consoliates further updates added to the IBX svn trunk since 2.3.2 including:

– ConfigOverrides for both TIBDatabase and TIBXServicesConnection
– Improvements to TIBCSVDataOut, TIBInsertStmtsOut and TIBBlockFormatOut.
– Case Sensitive Parameter Name support
– TIBDatabase.Attachment and TIBXServicesConnection.ServicesIntf are now read/write properties
– TIBQuery and TIBDataSet now support the TDataset.Filter property for server side filtering of SQL result sets.
– Minor bug fixes (see release notes for details).

The latest release candidate for Lazarus 2.0 is recommended for use with IBX 2.3.3. IBX 2.3.3
has been tested with the up-to-date fixed branch for Lazarus 2.0.
