Firebird 1.5.3 released.

The Firebird Project is pleased to announce the availability of Firebird V1.5.3, representing a year of bug fixes and minor enhancements, many back-ported from Firebird 2.0 development. Builds are available for both Windows and Linux.

The V1.5 release of Firebird represents a major upgrade to the V1.0 database engine, which has been developed by an independent team of voluntary developers from the original InterBase source code that was released by Borland under the InterBase Public License on 25th July 2000.

Development on the Firebird 2 codebase began early on during the Firebird V1.0 development process, with the porting of the Firebird 1.0 C code to C++ and the first major steps at code clean up. Firebird V1.5 is the first release of the Firebird 2 codebase and represents a significant milestone for the developers and the whole Firebird project.

There are many new features and bugs fixed and the list of major changes beyond the original V1.0 version is quite long. Please read all the Release Notes for relevant information.
