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.

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/.

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.

The CVS tree has been tagged for the final v2.0 release. The builds will be available for download as soon as they pass the QA procedures. [From: Dmitry Yemanov/Firebird Developer’s Journal]
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.
