Subject Firebird 2.1 beta has been released - is IBO keeping up?
Author Martijn Tonies
Hi Jason,

The Firebird team has release a beta of Firebird 2.1 including new
features in DSQL/DDL and API changes.

For example, CREATE OR ALTER TRIGGER <triggername> ON CONNECT

This is a database trigger. How does the IBO parser respond to this?

Another example are "Common Table Expressions" that allow for
recursive queries.

Is IBO keeping up? Will IBO ever keep up?

I am, once again, sorry I have to push you hard Jason, but from a
business point-of-view, IBO is currently lacking... Database Workbench
customers are STILL waiting for a Firebird 2.0 ready release due to
IBO not fully supporting Firebird 2!!
