Firebird 3.0.2

The primary goals for Firebird 3.0 were to unify the server architecture and to improve support for SMP and multiple-core hardware platforms. Parallel objectives were to improve threading of engine processes and the options for sharing page cache across thread and connection boundaries.

Alongside these aims came new strategies to improve performance, query optimization, monitoring and scalability and to address the demand for more security options. A number of popular features were introduced into the SQL language, including the long-awaited support for the Boolean data type and the associated logical predications.

Key points:

  • Revised architecture, including new authentication and configuration subsystems
  • Scalable (SMP/multi-core friendly) multi-threaded engine with the shared page cache
  • New ODS (version 12) with support for 64bit transaction ids, new system and monitoring tables
  • External (Java, C++, etc) stored procedures/triggers/functions
  • Reworked optimizer and new data access methods
  • Security enhancements
  • Various SQL extensions
