Firebird Relational Database 1.5.1 Final Released

The Firebird Project announces the <a
of Firebird V1.5.1. this release represents a commitment by the project
to develop and deliver ongoing improvements to this popular open source
database engine.
The NPTL (Native Posix Thread Library) Linux builds referred to in the
notes</a> will be available shortly.

Changes from previous version:

This release adds a charset improvement, allowing use of NONE as a fully
transparent charset everywhere. (Changes were made in the engine to make
the character set NONE more friendly about reading / writing data from
and to fields of another character set.)

It adds the config-driven ability to abort a server process in the case
of bugchecks or structured exceptions (to produce a core dump).

Firebird Superserver has a link-time backward compatibility issue with
the NPTL (Native POSIX Thread Library) that may cause it to be unstable
on Linux distributions that enable the NPTL in the GNU C.The new NPTL
builds of Superserver should solve these problems.
