We are proud to introduce the fifth version of our basic product for working with Firebird and InterBase.
IBProvider v5 inherits all the best from IBProvider v3 and dramatically improves the quality of implementation of the OLE DB components.
For the last few years, the main development line of IBProvider was fixing problems that prevented its stable operation. First of all, we had to fix problems not related to the provider itself — we rewrote the client for Firebird and the standard pool of OLE DB connections. It took a lot of time and resourses, but it was worth it.
Now the time has come to get to IBProvider itself.
Instead of local fixes, within the support of the third version we redesigned the inner infrastructure of the OLE DB components of IBProvider taking into account the entire experience gained over the last years. In part, the ideas were taken from our ADO.NET provider.
The main qualities of IBProvider v5 are reliability and fail safety…
With Best Regards, IBProvider Team.
