Delphi 2009 is out
But still no “official” support for Firebird, as Nick Hodges states in this podcast. BUT, rumors says that there will be news about this in the future.
Anyway, Firebird users has tons of third party access components (IBO, FIBPlus, InterXpress, UIB, Zeos, etc. etc.) to be used with Delphi so, no official support doesn’t mean any big problem for us.
Check the press release information here. This is the first Delphi version released after CodeGear was sold to Embarcadero.
