It depends by what you mean by full support. For the services API,
there's other 3rd party components that you can find on the IBO
website. Otherwise, IBO can be used with FB 1.5. FB 1.5 comes with a
very light gds32.dll which redirects the API calls to the new
fbclient.dll. This option might no longer exist in FB 2.0, it's still
uncertain. I test run my current applications using FB 1.5.

Jason stated that IBO will be compatible with Firebird and Interbase.
You never know, there might be 2 separate versions of IBO if and when
the interfaces and languages begins to diverge too much.
