Sequel 3.28.0 has been released and should be available on the gem mirrors.
What is changed on the firebird driver :
- The firebird adapter has been split into shared and specific parts,
and quite a few fixes were made to it.
- A jdbc firebird subadapter has been added, allowing connection to
firebird databases from JRuby.
- The firebird adapter was substanially modified, specifically parts related to insert returning autogenerated primary key values, so if you were previously using the adapter you should probably take more care than usual when testing your upgrade.
Philippe wrote on statusnet : fb and fb_adapter are packaged into Mageia first distro with packages for Ruby and Rails (Active Record driver)
fb_adapter for rails is now using trailing ROWS modifier instead of FIRST x SKIP y syntax to enable updates with limits also added tests for limit and offset options.
There was a small issue on building and installing the adapter and now is fixed. 0.5.10 version is now checked in and pushed to RubyGems.org.

Here is the description of rubinius:
Rubinius is an implementation of the Ruby programming language.
The Rubinius bytecode virtual machine is written in C++, incorporating LLVM to compile bytecode to machine code at runtime. The bytecode compiler and vast majority of the core classes are written in pure Ruby.
Here are the rbx experiments done by Brent Rowland
fb now builds fine but won’t load due to missing rb_ary_freeze and rb_struct_new. #rbx
And yes the Linux tests for classic Ruby VM are all ok
Linux testing of the latest fb code went well. 32- and 64-bit Rubies

Got fb building cleanly and passing all tests under Ruby 1.9.1. Now for 1.9.2.
Got fb building with Ruby 1.8.7, 1.9.1 and 1.9.2. At least on Mac. Under 10.6. Testing Linux and Windows will have to wait for another day.
