The Firebird Project team is pleased to announce the latest minor release in the Firebird 2.1 series, v.2.1.4, addressing bugs that have arisen since the v.2.1.3 release in 2009. Kits are ready to download for Linux, Windows and MacOSX on both 32-bit and 64-bit Intel platforms. For MacOSX, LIPO (fat client) packages are included and PowerPC kits will follow soon.

Thanks to those who participated in testing snapshots and the release candidate during the months past. Enjoy!

IMPORTANT: It has been found that V.2.5 Classic for Linux has problems with AST delivery if used with glibc 2.5. With glibc 2.7 it works properly. The situation with glibc 2.6 is unknown for now.

If your glibc version is lower than v.2.7, it must be upgraded before using Firebird 2.5 Classic/Superclassic.

If you have the skills and interest, Philippe would be pleased to hear from you and promises to help as needed. You may use the email contact route or simply connect with him in Firebird-devel or Firebird-general.
