I am. I just thought that what he wrote was 2.0-only and that it won't
be backported to 1.5. I forgot to mention that, sorry.

I needed to know about 1.5, as I kind-of need it now. I'm replacing my
laptop with 64bit one, and wish to keep all applications 64-bit only (I
haven't installed 32bit compatibility libs yet, and hope that I won't
need to). It looks it would be safer to run 32bit Firebird at this
point. What do you recommend I do? Perhaps run those 64bit builds in
debug mode and report every bug I find?

To make a problem clearer: Sometimes I use that laptop when I go to a
customer's site, and use FlameRobin on it to connect to customer's
Firebird server. Should I expect problems if I run 64bit FR with 64bit
fbclient to access databases via 32bit Firebird server?
