Some of the information is found in the release notes for the beta.
But, I suppose there will be more information once FB 1.5 is
officially released.

You don't have to. Run INSTSVC and INSTREG, and that should install
the registry settings and FB 1.5 service. The reason why the
executables have new names, is that Firebird can run at the same time
as Interbase or Firebird 1.0. Also, FB 1.5 has some added parameters
in the config file, some are to configure the IP port used by FB 1.5.
Unfortunately, I don't know what those parameters are, I'm still
waiting to see the config file.

Hope this answers your questions.
