you've missed something :) the 3rd IBPhoenix CD is going to be shipped
by the end of next week (as i just read - btw IBPhoenix is online again!)

It'll contain all the sources and executables of Firebird 1.0 plus...
well, see for yourselves:

(you might say: why so excited about a cd when i can have everything
online?... it may be due to the fact that i'm a dj and a cd collector
and this is one{1.0} cd i absolutlely *must* have - hope it has a
Firebird logo on the disc this time <g> ... ok, it is an invaluable
ressource of information for everyday work, too ;)
