In this section you can download Firebird installation packages, drivers and additional tools. If you intend to start new project, we strongly recommend using the most recent version of Firebird.

Server Packages

In the “Server Packages” section you can find released versions of Firebird: Firebird 3.0, Firebird 2.5, Firebird 2.1, etc. By default, the most recent minor release is listed at the top of the appropriate download page.

Supported Platforms

Firebird 2.5 runs on Windows (32- and 64-bit), various Linux versions (32- and 64- bit), Solaris (Sparc and Intel), HP-UX (PA-RISC) and MacOS X. Main development is done on Windows and Linux, so new releases are usually offered first for these platforms, followed by other platforms after a few weeks.

Snapshot Builds

For those who are interested in beta-testing of the newest features please download "Snapshot Builds". However, we recommend not using them in production environments.


In the "Connectivity" section you can download drivers to work with Firebird: Java, .NET, Python, and ODBC. In the "Third-party Tools & Drivers" sub-section there is a collection of links to third-party tools, drivers, and frameworks, both free and commercial.

Other Downloads

In the "Other Downloads" section you can find useful add-ons for Firebird like full-text search integration modules.
