Abstract

The Firebird project is close releasing Release Candidate 1 of version 2.5 of its relational database management system (RDBMS) to the public. Before going into detail discussing some new features in 2.5, let me briefly outline the history of Firebird, for those of you, who don’t know Firebird yet or still think we are talking about a web browser.
