Version 1.5.0 RC2 of Firebird Relational Database

Avatar

Release Notes: Problems with temporary files management have been solved: there was a security hole on all POSIX platforms except *BSD related to mktemp usage (possible DoS attacks or privileges elevation) and only 27 unique filenames were generated on Win32 (which could cause unpredictable behavior in SS builds). Some possible index corruptions during garbage collection have been fixed. The server now exits when firebird.conf is missing, with an error report in the system log.

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.
