Hi Dominique,

Let me explain to you the history for this subject in the last 6 months:

First, Paul from Tricats build a dedicated newsgroup to this project. Some
people went there, it have some discussion about it.

Next, 2 or 3 months ago, some people went here with lots of ideas also and
decide to peek up Marathon and do some work on it. I don't remember to see
there names here, but someone from the other list pick up the project, and I
know about some good developers that are working on Marathon right now.

Did you check already the marathon project?

About IBConsole: there was some 'political' problems with Firebird and
IBConsole. And you know about politics: none of parts are right, none of the
parts are wrong, but both parts became apart with no reason at all. And like
good politicians they still apart. :) (That's my independent point of view,
also political)
