Just for information:

six months ago SS6 (both from borland free and firebird 1.0) took a lot of
our time crashing several times
very large dabase unrecoverably. These events were lasted until we install
trial version of SS6.5 from Borland.
And it works guys.
So it may be not so bad if some of folk try to eliminate these serious bugs
from current version of SS.
After all for users it's no difference who create/maintain the product.
