I will not repeat everything written on
(Click the Firebird 2 RC1 link, download the release notes and read).

* Current stable version

* Has new features not in 1.5, too many to list
* Has better performance than 1.5
* Is not yet considered stable for production use

There are some queries which 1.5 will accept that 2.0 will reject
where you use aliases in part of the query but use the table name in
other parts of the query.

Unless you have a NEED for a feature not in 1.5, do not upgrade your
database to 2 yet. If you like, you could on a separate test server
install Firebird 2 to start testing your applications against it so
you are ready when it does get released.
