    • inability to restore privileges granted to roles
    • inability to alter the [[NOT] DETERMINISTIC] clause
    • SET TRANSACTION statement doesn't work
Bug Fixing
  • CORE-3256: Error "request depth exceeded" may appear while preparing a select query against a view with explicit plan
  • CORE-3218: Statement cancellation request might be silently ignored by the currently running SQL code
  • CORE-3217: Server crashes inside the lock manager when multiple connections are attaching/detaching simultaneously
  • CORE-3210: Error "no current record for fetch operation" in SELECT query
  • CORE-3208: Significant memory leaks with recursive queries
  • CORE-3207: Access violation inside isc_start_multiple() on begin transaction
  • CORE-3059: RemoteFileOpenAbility fails on Windows
  • Bugcheck "Too many savepoints (287)" at rollback after exception at EXECUTE BLOCK with exception handler
  • CORE-1038: Remote shadows on NT-based systems
  • Unregistered: Server crashes while shutting down the database
  • Unregistered: Server crashes while printing database pools into a file
  • Unregistered: Minor corrections in the optimizer, resolving the known regressions
  • Unregistered: More than 128 expression indices cannot be created without restarting the server
  • Unregistered: Incorrect collection of inner streams for aggregates
October 2010

New development
  • Basic network support for the fb_ping() API call
  • Fixed a few problems with PSQL functions
Bug Fixing

  • CORE-3203: UPDATE OR INSERT with RETURNING causes "Invalid Cursor" error
  • CORE-3202: execute_immediate API call family may crash the remote server
  • CORE-2827: Very slow prepare for complex interrelated metadata with many triggers indirectly involved in the operation being prepared
  • Unregistered (backport): Faster lookup in the security classes
  • CORE-1234 (backport): More information about table what belongs to column when checking privileges
Miscellaneous
  • Two webinars (v2.5 launch and performance testing)
September 2010

Bug Fixing
  • CORE-3137: Partial rollback is possible for a selectable procedure modifying data
  • CORE-3131: WIN1257_LV (Latvian) collation is wrong for 4 letters: A E I U
