Are you talking about Vulcan and Yaffil? Yaffil is being integrated
within Firebrid, some of it in FB 2.0 and more in FB 3.0. Vulcan is a
commissioned version by a company to have a Firebird version that runs
in a 64-bit Solaris environment(Windows will also be developed) and
have a true SMP compliant Superserver, and it is done via IB-Phoenix.
And, Vulcan is supposed to be the base code for FB 3.0.

If you want more details, you can ask Jim Starkey(Ann's husband btw
and Interbase's creator, if you didn't know it already) some questions
on the Firebird-Devel and Firebird-Architect groups.

And, in regards to the security aspect in Vulcan, one thread titled
"Security Plugins: An Architecture" can be found in the Firebird-Devel
group, it started around Oct 4, 2004.
