Milan Babuskov one of original creators of fbManager which became Flamerobin, just made it publicly known that he now works for MySQL AB.
My project, Flamerobin and Firebird Foundation , have been acquired by MySQL, AB. As part of the agreement, I will be working full time for MySQL. I expect to lurk on the flamerobin-devel list from time to time and may contribute the occasional wolf-o-gram, but I will not be taking an active part in Flamerobin development. Although Mariuz will work for MySQL, part time, translating from wolf to English,He will continue to be active in the Firebird/Flamerobin projects.
MySQL acquired IbPhoenix too and Paul Beach will work as MySql marketer.
I do know MySQL’s VP of Marketing…. not surprising
really since we were both at Borland together. And since Zack
joined MySQL a number of other Borland types have appeared…
Steve Curry for PR etc
Today first RC1 release is announced that many oss developers had been awaiting
MyFireGreSql 2.0 is based on code from mysql 6.0 ,firebird 3.0,postgresql 9.0
We needed a big shake up in open source database world and working on the common code base have it’s
advantages:Firebird and Postgresql borrowed from mysql’s speed , mysql used MVCC for it’s transactional engine (is based on firebird) .
SQL2003 is implemented in all three engines now that is published as standard .So why working on a three SQL200X implementations when we could work only on one? , The project’s model is linux kernel where vendors are using only one source code for their distributions (patched properly) but there is only one organization for working on the kernel osdl.
The results are in, and the voters have spoken. We’ve just tallied the
results for the 2006 SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards. The
results are impressive–more than 212,000 of you came to voice your
support for the projects nominated. Winners will be announced at the
Slashdot Lounge in the .ORG Pavilion at LinuxWorld Expo, Boston, on
April 5, and the complete list of winners will be posted on
SourceForge.net on April 6.
Meanwhile, you can view the complete list of nominees and read more

That link tells of thieves attempting to steal a Koala. What idiots. Surely the only people who think Koalas are cuddly and nice are foreiners who couldn’t know any better.
Turns out, the Koala did so much damage to the would-be thieves that they abducted a fresh water crocodile instead 🙂

Knoda is a KDE database-frontend for DBase, Firebird, MSAccess, MySQL, Paradox, PostgreSQL, SQLite, and ODBC.Besides tables, views, and queries, it also handles forms
Release focus: Major feature enhancements
The main new feature is the improved query editor. It handles outer and inner joins (as far as the SQL server supports it). The drivers SQLITE3, SQLITE2, and MDB (MS Access) can compile without the need to install extra packages, so they are generally available. Many bugs are fixed.
20GB of video data available, with around 100 hours of firebird related presentations from Firebird Conference
There is currently about 20GB of video data available, with around 100 hours of firebird-related presentations from last two Firebird Conferences and other events.
Here is the list of available Films
What is IBExpertLive?
HK-Software has implemented a streaming system based on the Firebird database server, which publishes pictures and audio, as needed to view the presentations from the 2004 and 2005 Firebird Conferences. We will also be adding IBExpert tutorial videos enabling you to learn more about working with Firebird and InterBase with IBExpert.
To use IBExpertLive, you need a firebird connection via Internet using port 13050 to our server on IP 22.214.171.124. If it does not work, please check your firewall settings. For reporting any other questions/problems regarding IBExpertLive, please use the following contact addresses:
IBELive newsgroup: hk-software.ibexpert.live (English, German and Russian language).
E-mail: ibexpertlive at ibexpert.biz.
There might be some videos that are not working yet, even if they are on the list. Please bear with us; we’ll have everything up and running as soon as possible.

The Firebird SQL data application block is intended to speed up development, and it should be used in conjunction with data layer classes in much the same way as Microsoft’s data block. The sample included with this article uses the embedded Firebird SQL database (included in sample) to demonstrate the use of the application block without having to bother setting up a database.
Firebird SQL data application block was inspired by the Microsoft Application blocks. The block provides overloaded methods to query a Firebird database which return a dataset, data table, or integer in the case of scalar database calls. An additional overload method takes an existing dataset as a parameter and fills the results of a stored procedure send as parameter as well.
For those who are on Linux and want to extract database’s metadata, please have a look to firebird/interbase native isql tool, that permits to export DDL as follow:
isql DBalias -o ddl.sql -x -u SYSDBA -p masterkey
