The Firebird Team is pleased to let loose the first Alpha of Firebird 2.5, more or less feature-complete and ready to field-test. Kits are available for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows and Linux. So — please test it well and report your experiences (good or bad) to the Firebird-devel list.

Do make a point of studying the release notes (available on-line and also in the download kits) as V.2.5 is to be a macro release introducing the architecture that will progress into Firebird 3 as full support for fine-grained multi-threading and SMP.

It all helps, folks, so roll along to the voting site with your SF username and password at the ready and let's see if we can do it again. Results announced later this month at OSCON.
