Subject Firebird 2.0 RELEASED
Author Helen Borrie
The Firebird Project today officially releases the much-anticipated
version 2.0 of its open source Firebird relational database software
during the opening session of the fourth international Firebird
Conference in Prague, Czech Republic.

Firebird 2.0 is the happy culmination of more than two years' efforts
from a broad-ranging, truly international community of dedicated
developers and supporters. It brings with it a large collection of
long-awaited enhancements that significantly improve performance,
security and support for international languages and realise some
desirable new SQL language features. Under the surface, it also
provides a much more robust code platform from which the
re-architecting planned for Firebird 3.0 is proceeding.
