Two Linux ports have been contributed recently – MIPSEL and PowerPC (credits go to Fabrice Aeschbacher and Damyan Ivanov). Also, Paul Beach has ported v1.5.3 to HP-UX (already available for download) and Alex Peshkoff has almost completed porting the same version to AIX. And finally, port to Win64 (so far AMD64 and EM64T only) is committed into the HEAD branch and will be available in the v2.1 release.

Rebuilt Windows kits are now available and are making their way to the mirrors.
From Dmitry Yemanov:
Windows builds of Firebird 2.0 Release Candidate 5 have been released with an issue related to the INTL support. This is not a bug in the code, but a build/packaging issue. One of the ICU libraries (icudt30.dll) got built wrongly. We apologize for inconvenience, the builds are to be fixed and re-released shortly. In the meantime, icudt30.dll from the RC4 package would fix the issue.
Get your copy now! Probably this will become FB 2.0 final release 🙂

In a chat with Dmitry Yemanov, I was told that Firebird 2.0 RC5 should be out until the end of this week, and it has great chances to become FB 2.0 final release.
