There will be. It's largely a question of funding (and hope, of course. <g>)

Ach, let's scotch any rumours that there will be a "C++ API". The API is
just a set of function calls with structures sitting there thirstily
waiting for application programs to pass data into them. gds for FB
1.5/2.x might do what it does inside its walls in different ways, but the
windows and curtains won't change..apart, of course, from the addition of
new items, as has already occurred. We have no intention of breaking the
upgrade path from InterBase to Firebird !!!!

When your media kit arrives, make sure you "top it up" with the documented
additions from the Firebird release notes *including* the API.
