Firebird 2.5.7

Firebird 2.5.7 is currently the latest stable release. Detailed information about new features and improvements can be found in the release notes.

Note

The recommended Linux kernel version is 2.6.34 and glibc should be version 2.12 or higher. Minimum - kernel 2.6.27 and glibc 2.7.

Note

To make the engine work properly on MacOS X under multi-threaded conditions we had to use Grand Central Dispatch, which was first released in MacOSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard). MacOSX users should be aware that Firebird 2.5.7 will run only on MacOSX 10.7 or higher versions. If you want to use an earlier version of OSX you will need to use an earlier version of Firebird.
