Firebird 2.1.7

Last of the 2.1 Series

.

Firebird 2.1.x is no longer maintained by Firebird Project. However, if you want support for older versions of Firebird to use with your applications, you can contact IBPhoenix directly.

Important

Before upgrading please pay attention to the files in the /misc/upgrade/metadata directory of your Firebird 2.1 installation as an essential step for preparing your databases for use under Firebird 2.1. If your databases contain metadata fields (like object names, comments/descriptions, computed field definitions, PSQL, view or constraint sources) storing non-ASCII data then the backup/restore upgrade cycle may not be enough to make them usable.

Warning

Firebird 2.1 creates databases with an ODS of 11.1. It can read databases of lower ODS (i.e. from version 2.0) but most of its new features will be unavailable to such databases.

Linux 32-bit

Note

There are no V2.1.x non-NPTL builds and no more will be made. If you are still using a 2003 or earlier Linux distribution that does not support the New POSIX Threading Model then you will need to upgrade your OS to use Firebird 2.1.x and any future Superserver releases.
