The Firebird Project today officially releases

open source Firebird relational database software
The 2.1 release has many interesting new features that you can play
with, like database triggers, temporary and monitoring tables, common
table expressions, recursive queries and dozens of new inbuilt
functions. We encourage you to see what you can achieve with these new
features and let us know about any deficiency.

Windows ,MacOSX ,Linux kits fir 32-bit and 64-bit
platforms are ready to download now
You are invited to test it furiously
and report your experiences (good or bad) back to the firebird-devel list.
It brings with it a large collection of long-awaited enhancements that significantly improve performance, security and support for international languages and realise some desirable new SQL language features. Under the surface, it also provides a much more robust code platform from which the re-architecting planned for Firebird 2.5/3.0 is proceeding.
The Firebird project roadmap for 2008 is now available.
