Firebird is to have a two-part slot in this year's Entwickler Konferenz in Frankfurt, Germany. EKON runs in parallel with the all-Europe Codegear (Borland) Developer Conference at the end of September, but our presenter, Thomas Steinmaurer, assures us that this double session will be pure Firebird, unfettered by any requirement to merge tracks with any Codegear products.

So the tracker will be down for several hours now (in the worst case, for the rest of today).

Firebird is a finalist in four categories of the SourceForge Community Choice Awards beanfest for 2007. For once, we're not looking at a spitting contest for database engine groupies: in each category the Firebird project is up against 9 other projects all selected for excellence from hundreds of thousands of SF projects. Categories are Best Tool or Utility, Best Project for the Enterprise, Best User Support and Best Project Overall.

Voting is open until July 20 so take this opportunity to credit Firebird with your recognition. Full details and links here.
