Alpha builds are available now and have been for some weeks now - but
please be prepared to get your head around CVS and how to get the snapshot
builds *and* watch the firebird-devel list for announcements.

Alpha and beta testing is NOT supported in the ib-support list.

The FB developers are reporting constantly on what they are doing. I
guess your ability to keep yourself informed will be closely related to
your level of curiosity.

For 1.5? Possibly...though it wouldn't be a priority. The ODS changes
will come through in FB 2. The primary (though not sole) purpose of FB 1.5
is to get the new C++ codebase running at least as well as the FB 1
C-codebase. New and wonderful should be much more reachable beyond that point.
