Subject Security patches - How?
Author wiesn
Dear Firebird experts,
I am currently evaluating the different available DB-Systems and did
not find exact information about
- where security updates and issues about firebird are anounced
- how they are fixed (means: will there be a patch or a "new" version
to download)
- how to apply security fixes? (means: Can we simply exchange the
install-dir with the new fixed version or is a dump/re-import
necessary) quick will that update be done on a "hot" webserver
installation? The Web-DB has definitely to be down during update/patch
time, right?

Thanks you for your help.
And....are there any performance benchmarks for
multi-prozessor-systems comparing Firebird with e.g. MySql or Postgres ?
