Subject Re: [firebird-support] Firebird 2.1.3 and 2.5 and ODBC
Author Jorge Andrés Brugger
Firebird ODBC 2.0.149 works fine with Firebird 2.1.x

Maybe you dont know this: Red-Soft, the people behind Red Soft DB, a
Firebird "fork", uses ODBC in their own software, so it´s highly
probable they update their ODBC driver, if needed, and also Firebird
ODBC driver as well.
