Firebird Project announces the second (and last) Beta release of Firebird 4.0, the next major version of the Firebird relational database, which is now available for testing on Windows and Linux platforms.

This Beta release arrives with features and improvements already implemented by the Firebird development team, as well as with countless bugfixes. Our users are appreciated giving it a try and providing feedback to the development mailing list. Apparent bugs can be reported directly to the bugtracker.

Beta releases are not encouraged for production usage or any other goals that require a stable system. They are, however, recommended for those users who want to help in identifying issues and bottlenecks thus allowing to progress faster through the Beta/RC stages towards the final release.

Please read the Release Notes carefully before installing and testing this Beta release.

Since the end of last year, Yahoo! has stopped hosting news groups as forums.  As you may noticed, the web interfaces and all message histories have been removed.  Messages are now delivered only as email and there is no control to prevent SPAM and nuisance contributors.
We have the moves of firebird-java, firebird-support and firebird-general under way so far.  You should subscribe to the Google list and post all messages there from now on. For the link to a list's Google address, please visit https://firebirdsql.org/en/mailing-lists/
Firebird-php is moving also, but its new home currently needs work.
