Firebird Roadmap updated for January 2012
This document states the current development activities of the project and establishes the estimated release schedule for the foreseeable future. It’s getting periodically updated in order to be in line with the reality.
The project’s development resources are currently dedicated to the v2.5 and v3.0 versions, with v2.0 and v2.1 versions being maintained on the regular basis.
As notified earlier, the v1.5.x series is not being released anymore. Firebird 1.5.6 was the last release of that series officially published by the project. However, its codebase may still collect some bugfixes occasionally backported from the newer versions. Any subsequent binary releases, should they be necessary, would be available from IBPhoenix on a commercial basis.
Please pay attention that the v2.0.x series celebrates its sixth anniversary this year. So far the project maintenance practice was to discontinue support for the release series older than five years. Thus please be prepared that the next point release (v2.0.7) could be the last one published by the project in that series.
For more details about the anticipated releases, read on.
