Subject ANN: InterBase Workbench 1.1 released!
Author Martijn Tonies
Hi ladies, gentlemen,

Upscene Productions is happy to announce a new version of
InterBase Workbench - the developer tool for InterBase and Firebird.

This version includes support for the latest Firebird features!

InterBase Workbench gives you an easy-to-use application to create,
edit and extract your database objects, export tables, run scripts,
extract metadata, run ad-hoc SQL statements and much much more...

InterBase Workbench works well on low-bandwith connections because
of extensive caching in the object editors and by using IBObjects -
the best InterBase/Firebird connectivity suite for Delphi and
CPP Builder.

InterBase Workbench supports InterBase and Firebird - download a
trial copy at - go there now!

We don't copy features - we make them up.
