Here are some steps needed for developing on that platform
Firebird is prone to an integer-overflow vulnerability because it fails to ensure that integer values aren’t overrun. Attackers may exploit this issue to overflow a buffer and to corrupt process memory.
Attackers may be able to execute arbitrary machine code in the context of an affected application. Failed exploit attempts will likely result in a denial-of-service condition.
The JVCS team is happy to announce JEDI VCS 2.50 Beta 1, which is the first beta version of the second JVCS release.
This beta version targets experienced JEDI VCS users which are interested in branching functionality.
The intention of this beta version is to find out if we are on the right way.
Almost all of the branching changes were made in the server and are finished since middle of 2006 and it is now time for beta testing.
It can be downloaded here in the SF download section:
You should find all important information about this version in section 7 in the release notes.
Please read this section carefully!
Today I put the finishing touches to a native 64bit port of Firebird for MacOS 10.5 (Leopard).
This required the following changes to the Firebird 2.1 code base (B2_1_Release). For anybody else considering adding a new platform to Firebird then you may find this useful.
I’m happy to announce the release of mojoPortal 22.214.171.124.
Its been over 3 months since the last packaged release which is a bit longer than usual, my general motto is release early and release often but I had set a goal for this release to include the Newsletter which took a little longer than anticiapted. I was also side tracked on some other projects and of course we had several major holidays and family events to sidetrack me too. As a result this is a significant new release with a lot of new goodness.
The thread is on joelonsoftware.com and the question is about open source databases :
Quick issue, everyone. My company currently uses SQL Server, but we’re going to look at open-source databases because of MS’s crooked licensing rules (to be honest, they only have one SQL license, and are running it on a two-processor machine). They don’t want to shell out the extra $6,000 for another one, and I don’t blame them.
We need a reliable database for handling lots of data (e-commerce site with about 70,000 products). The ability to use stored procedures is a big thing. Although it’s not a huge deal, it’d be nice to be able to automate jobs for maintenance/updating (product stock, for example). I’m aware of both MySQL and Postgres, and a few others that don’t seem to be “enterprise-ready” as it were (Firebird? SqlLite?).
Jaybird 2.1.2 is released. It is a bugfix release that targets two main issues, JDK 6.0 compatibility and support for INSERT…RETURNING statements. More info at the JDBC Driver page.
