Is this mean that Firebird 1.5 is a Final Release ? Not a Release
Candidate (alpha/beta version) anymore ?

The Firebird Project is pleased to announce that the v1.5 release of the
Firebird database engine is now available for immediate download.

The v1.5 release represents a major upgrade to the engine, which has
been developed by an independent team of voluntary developers from the
InterBase(tm) source code that was released by Borland under the
InterBase Public License v.1.0 on 25 July 2000.

Development on the Firebird 2 codebase began early in Firebird 1
development, with the porting of the Firebird 1 C code to C++ and the
first major code-cleaning. Firebird 1.5 is the first release of the
Firebird 2 codebase. It is a significant milestone for the developers
and the whole Firebird project, but it is not an end in itself. As
Firebird 1.5 goes to release, major redevelopment continues toward the
next point release on the journey to Firebird 2.

The install packages and documentation can found on the Firebird Project
web site ( -- follow the Download or Documentation

Install packages are currently only available for Windows and Linux but
other platforms should follow shortly.
