Firebird Project announces the second Beta release of Firebird 3.0, the next major version of the Firebird relational database, which is now available for testing.
 
This Beta release demonstrates the features and improvements currently under development by the Firebird development team. 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.
 
Beta 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 Beta release.

The Firebird JDBC team is happy to announce the release of Jaybird 2.2.8.

This release contains the following changes and fixes:

  • Support for Java 5 has been dropped
  • Fixed: LibreOffice doesn't display tables with more than 41 records (JDBC-383)
  • Improvement: Don't use Firebird provided IP address for connecting event channel (JDBC-384)
  • Fixed: Connection.getMetaData().getColumns result set contains wrong (empty) COLUMN_DEF if column type was defined using domain (JDBC-388)
  • Fixed: Unable to retrieve update count after result set (JDBC-390)
    After executing a query that produces a result set, calling getMoreResults will allow getUpdateCount to actually return the update count where previously it always returned -1. This also allows obtaining the update count after a select query (even when executed using executeQuery). For selects the result will usually be 0.
  • Fixed: SELECT statements are processed for getGeneratedKeys by appending RETURNING (+ all columnnames) (JDBC-391)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not correctly handle quoted table names (JDBC-392)
  • Fixed: Generated key grammar does not detect returning clause in update and delete (JDBC-393)

The release is also available on maven(*):

<groupId>org.firebirdsql.jdbc</groupId>
<artifactId>jaybird-jdkXX</artifactId>
<version>2.2.8</version>

* The artifactId depends on your target Java version: jaybird-jdk18, jaybird-jdk17, or jaybird-jdk16.
