Just a correction. That's going to be Firebird 3.0. Firebird 2.0 is
scheduled to be released for the end of this year, but will not be SMP
compliant(other than the Classic Server version).

Here's the roadmap for more details, of the future development of

I don't think there's that many, other than it can take more memory
than Superserver, depending on the number of connections. But, the
advantage over Superserver is that the performance is quite the same
even with a high number(100+) of connections(given that the server has enough
memory to handle them).
