Jiri Cincura announces the 5.0.0.0 Release of ADO.NET provider for Firebird.

As you can see the major version number changed. This release contains two new big features, both focused on Firebird 3. The BOOLEAN datatype is now supported (except Entity Framework mapping, currently). And SRP authentication is supported on Firebird 3. Also internals of the protocol handling were refactored and slightly cleaned up (and more to do). Hopefully that will enable easier improvements and fixes in the future.

Overview of changes can be found in tracker.

You can download them in the ".NET Provider" section of Downloads. Enjoy!

The 13th Firebird Developers' Day (FDD) will be held in Piracicaba - SP, Brazil on July 9th. This is the biggest conference in the world devoted to the Firebird RDBMS, with an average of 400 attendees. During all the day long, attendees can participate in several sessions presenting subjects of extreme interest for Firebird users. With the recent release of Firebird 3, this year we will have several talks about some of its new features, especially focusing on performance and security. The attendees also have the chance to buy Firebird tools with huge discounts, thanks to our sponsors.

FDD is mostly a Portuguese speakers conference, although there is always the presence of some international speaker (with translation). This year, we have confirmed the presence of Alexey Kovyazin, CEO of IBSurgeon.

Registration is already open — the price rises with the conference proximity, so registering now is a good idea to save money. During the registration process, subscribers have the chance to donate any amount to the Firebird Foundation.
