October 18, 2010 I am Alexander Potapchenko. I have formally taken up the role of coordinator of this neglected ODBC driver sub-project. My challenge over the next weeks will be to bring the V.2.0 driver up to release standard and begin planning the V.2.1 release. I cannot do this alone. Here is how you (as a user) can help:
November 19, 2008 Alexander has put up Release Candidate 1 binaries and source today, OdbcFb v.RC1-2.0.0148, for you to download and test. Please put these builds through their paces and report back (good and bad) to the firebird-odbc-devel list.

NOTE, from now, please take your downloads via the Downloads section. We will reserve this page for news about the ODBC driver development.
October 2008 Development has been in the doldrums for a couple of years, with departure of the sub-project's former coordinator, Vladimir Tsvigun, to new parts. Recently, Alexander Potapchenko, a senior developer from Red Soft, has agreed to become the new coordinator.

This month both Alexander and IBPhoenix have produced some test builds with the aim of getting the v.2 beta driver tested and released. They are working together to get the ODBC driver into shape and properly lodged in our official repositories. In the meantime, the builds are available to test, from the Red Soft and IBPhoenix sites, respectively.
