When is planned packaging of Firebird 2.0 ? Damyan responds:
The packaging is basically done, I have to integrate some debconf tricks
from 1.5 branch packaging (these debconf tricks are not even in sid,
where 1.5 lives, to avoid any problems with the etch release).
I am not sure if the current packages are of interest to you. If so,
drop me a mail and I’ll make them public in the very beginning of 2007.
I need to make some more checks before I am confident they won’t blow
out the life from the planet 🙂

Dmitry Yemanov wrote on firebird devel-list :
We’re now busy with v1.5.4 and v2.0.1 point releases, so I wouldn’t expect v2.1 Alpha this month, but it will definitely be released in January.
The old Firebird-CS-1.5.1.pkg isn’t compatible with macosx Tiger, please
download the latest package from SF (1.5.3). That should work.
It points now to the right page
Old vulnerability surfaced up from the deep . If you have an old Firebird 1.5.x please upgrade to latest version
ps: seems that securityfocus is updating their own vuln database so this is why it surfaced up again (the bug was squashed long long time ago)
pdk63 asked :”Is it possible to download them from somewhere? I don’t seem to find them, neither at FirebirdSQL nor IBPhoenix.”
Well there are some daily Firebird 2.1 (HEAD) builds snaphots for linux from http://www.dqteam.com/fb2/HEAD/.
Soon some windows builds will be uploaded on main firebirdsql.org site

We have a logo that serves us well, is simple, uncluttered and
distinctive, and looks great on a t-shirt. 🙂
What we did need – and now have, thanks to the same Stefan Heyman, was
fresh rendering of our logo. The improved images are available for
both viewing and download at
http://www.firebirdsql.org/index.php?id=firebird-logo. We do ask that
you don’t all try to download the enhanced Windows metafile version
all at once! 🙂
Stefan has also improved the bitmap image that is used for the Windows
installer builds. It will appear in CVS in the next day or so.

the freshports page is here.
What is a port?
A port is the term used to describe a collection of files which makes it extremely easy to install an application. As it says in the FreeBSD Ports description: Installing an application is as simple as downloading the port, unpacking it and typing make in the port directory.
For more information about the Ports tree, see http://www.freebsd.org/ports/.
