Release Notes: This Alpha release arrives with an early preview of the features and improvements currently under development, as well as with countless bugfixes.
Release Notes: This update addresses a remote stack buffer overflow discovered in Firebird Server. This vulnerability allowed an unauthenticated user to crash the server, and opened a gate for remote code execution, so it's highly recommended to upgrade your server installations.
Release Notes: Numerous issues were fixed and a few minor improvements were made.
Release Notes: The months that have passed since the initial release have seen numerous Tracker issues tackled to address things that have been reported broken, bent, or compromised in v.2.5. As well as a long list of bugfixes, a few minor improvements have been made.
Release Notes: The primary goal for Firebird 2.5 was to establish the basics for a new threading architecture that is almost entirely common to the Superserver, Classic, and Embedded models, taking in lower level synchronization and thread safety generally. User management is accessible through SQL CREATE/ALTER/DROP USER statements, and syntaxes for ALTER VIEW and CREATE OR ALTER VIEW are implemented. PSQL improvements include the introduction of autonomous transactions and the ability to query another database via EXECUTE STATEMENT.
