Winners were announced at the Slashdot Lounge at LinuxWorld Expo, Boston, April 5. The winner of the Database category is phpMyAdmin.
[Ed: It seems that there is a typo in the sourceforge winners page. It shows two “2nd runners up” in the Database category. IMHO, it doesn’t seem too “fair” to compare database engines with database frontends.]
Hi all (especially the German speaking folks),
FYI: In the current edition of the well-known German “Entwickler Magazin”, there has been an article about “Firebird Embedded Server” included.
The link to the content of the current edition is:
Feuervogel Das XCOPY-Deployment Paradigma außerhalb der .NET-Welt
A bit weird, but “Feuervogel” is the German translation of “Firebird”
which isn’t my text when sending them the article. 😉
“Das XCOPY-Deployment Paradigma außerhalb der .NET-Welt” can be
translated to something like “The XCOPY deployment paradigm outside the

From Dmitry Yemanov:
It has been discovered recently (thanks to Eugene Kilin) that Win32 builds of Classic Server did not set up some socket options properly, including SO_KEEPALIVE. So if you have troubles with “zombie” processes not terminating after the keepalive internal, this is the reason. The patch has been committed into HEAD today and it will be available in the v2.0 RC2 release.
Also, Windows builds (both SuperServer and Classic) are now in sync with the POSIX ones and also have the Nagle algorithm disabled by default. If you want to change this behaviour, set the config option TcpNoNagle to zero.
Gracco – a new software developed by Zats & Loib – offers a complete and integrated solution for management business-oriented pertaining to legal profession for the Brazilian market. A free version of the tool can be download here. Gracco uses Firebird SuperServer as database.
Seems like it may be related to the FB Japanese user group. Sometimes, a few people from it post in the lists.
Here is the English version of that page and they had 2 presentations at Open source conference 2006 Tokyo : one is “Why to choose Firebird” the other is “How to build/debug Firebird”. [Ed:thanks for the link Cludio V.]
Major plans for 2.0 – Firebird support will be added
Milan Babuskov one of original creators of fbManager which became Flamerobin, just made it publicly known that he now works for MySQL AB.
My project, Flamerobin and Firebird Foundation , have been acquired by MySQL, AB. As part of the agreement, I will be working full time for MySQL. I expect to lurk on the flamerobin-devel list from time to time and may contribute the occasional wolf-o-gram, but I will not be taking an active part in Flamerobin development. Although Mariuz will work for MySQL, part time, translating from wolf to English,He will continue to be active in the Firebird/Flamerobin projects.
MySQL acquired IbPhoenix too and Paul Beach will work as MySql marketer.
I do know MySQL’s VP of Marketing…. not surprising
really since we were both at Borland together. And since Zack
joined MySQL a number of other Borland types have appeared…
Steve Curry for PR etc
Today first RC1 release is announced that many oss developers had been awaiting
MyFireGreSql 2.0 is based on code from mysql 6.0 ,firebird 3.0,postgresql 9.0
We needed a big shake up in open source database world and working on the common code base have it’s
advantages:Firebird and Postgresql borrowed from mysql’s speed , mysql used MVCC for it’s transactional engine (is based on firebird) .
SQL2003 is implemented in all three engines now that is published as standard .So why working on a three SQL200X implementations when we could work only on one? , The project’s model is linux kernel where vendors are using only one source code for their distributions (patched properly) but there is only one organization for working on the kernel osdl.
