Register to FirebirdNews mailing list!

The FBNews list will handle special announcements and news about Firebird related subjects.

You should not expect to get too much email from the list, since it will be used just for really important/interesting announcements.

Why this?

Firebird is an open source project, and anyone can download and use it without giving any personal information. This is great! But there is one major drawback: the project doesn’t have a database of currently users, and so, it is almost impossible to do a quick direct contact with them, to let them know about new versions, patches, conferences dates, etc.

This list will try to fill this gap.
