  Change Log   Details about this release
IMPORTANT NOTE: Because Firebird 2.1 client library is statically linked to glibc on Linux, you may encounter (typically on 32-bit Linux system) an error "ImportError: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: _Unwind_GetIP" when importing kinterbasdb. This issue will be addressed by next Firebird 2.1 maintenance release. Meanwhile you can fix it using LD_PRELOAD environment variable to preload before running any program that uses kinterbasdb.
