IBObjects 5.9.5 Build 2652 is available. For more information please see the Release Notes.
Here is the announcement by Jason Wharton
I am delighted to announce the official release of IBO 5.9.5 Build 2652 today.
This release provides support for the latest version of Delphi and C++ Builder (10.2 Tokyo Update 1) as well as some other significant improvements.
For all of the details, please see the Release Notes here:
I’d like to remind everyone of the new documentation file in the previous release.
Please look in your ibo5\docs sub-folder for the Optimizing Queries and Transactions file.
One of the main issues solved was improved handling of complex queries that have input parameters with the same name but with different underlying field types, and also when these parameters get pulled into other internal cursors when IBO is automatically handling things like fetching individual records, performing locates, virtualizing the dataset for horizontal dataset refinement, record counts, and so on.
Thank you to everyone who continues to keep your license subscriptions up to date. IBO continues to be my full-time endeavor and I really enjoy working for all of you because you are who makes it possible.

It is easy to get a powerful server if you are ready to spend many $$$: there are leading vendors like Dell, HP, and many less known hardware companies, they will be happy to sell you a powerful machine.
However, money is always a problem, especially for small businesses and start-ups, so there is a great demand for «good-enough» cheap solutions.
The new article from IBSurgeon describes the practical approach for building «good-enough» database server with the sufficient performance for small business. It also contains calculations and links to the specific products we recommend.
