Subject RE: [Firebird-general] Updating FB2.1.2 download
Author Roger Vellacott
I have the snapshot, and it solves the problem. It just seemed a bit
weird to us that the only way we can have a stable version of FB is to
use what, (cf Helen's reply), is an untested, and therefore potentially
unstable, snapshot build, which was loaded to the website only 7 days
after the official release.

So from our point of view, the official, stable release is unstable.
And the unofficial, unstable release is stable. I thought someone might
want to do something about this.

Did you want a snapshot or a full release?
