The firebird project makes a considerable effort to keep
interfaces upward compatible. You should not have any
problem using a V1.x client with a V2 server - other than
an undefined error message if your application runs into
a condition that was not previously caught. A V2 client
should also be able to access V1.5 servers, with the
exception that V2 features will get error messages of
various types - normally parse errors indicating that a
keyword is not recognized.
