Firebird Project announces the first Alpha release of Firebird 4.0, the next major version of the Firebird relational database, which is now available for testing.

This Alpha release arrives with an early preview of the features and improvements currently under development by the Firebird development team, as well as with countless bugfixes. Our users are appreciated giving it a try and providing feedback to the development mailing list. Apparent bugs can be reported directly to the bugtracker.

Alpha releases are not encouraged for production usage or any other goals that require a stable system. They are, however, recommended for those users who want to help in identifying issues and bottlenecks thus allowing to progress faster through the Beta/RC stages towards the final release.

Please read the Release Notes carefully before installing and testing this Alpha release.

The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 3.0.2.

Jaybird 3.0.2 contains the following fixes and changes:
  • Fixed: Specifying an unknown Java character set in connection property charSet or localEncoding was handled as if no connection character set had been specified, now we throw an exception that the character set is unknown. (JDBC-498)
  • Changed: Specifying a connection character set is no longer required, and will now default to NONE again, if system property org.firebirdsql.jdbc.defaultConnectionEncoding is not specified. (JDBC-502)
See the Jaybird 3.0.2 release notes for more information. Jaybird 3.0.2 can be downloaded from the JDBC Driver page.
