This package is needed for development of client applications accessing
Firebird RDBMS.
Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL standard
features that runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms.
Firebird offers excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful
language support for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used
in production systems, under a variety of names, since 1981.

2018-11-21 -
- update to upstream version 3.0.4
* add support for SRP authentication using SHA-256
* ODS (database file format) version raised to 12.2 on some
architectures (including i586, not x86_64); new version will be
able to open existing ODS 12.0 created on the same architecture
but for database transfer between architectures, backup/restore
is always recommended
* context variables WIRE_COMPRESSED and WIRE_ENCRYPTED were added
to the SYSTEM namespace to report compression and encryption
status, respectively, of the current connection (CORE-5913)
* enhanced reporting of errors when dynamic library fails to load
* include funciton name when UDF causes "Arithmetic exception,
numeric overflow, or string truncation" error (CORE-5876)
* context variables LOCALTIME and LOCALTIMESTAMP (synonyms for
CURRENT_TIME and CURRENT_TIMESTAMP) for compatibility with 4.0
* read-only restriction for system tables was relaxed to permit
CREATE, ALTER and DROP operations on their indexes (CORE-5746)
* fix unauthorized BLOB access vulnerability (CORE-5801)
* for a full list of bugfixes and improvements see
- drop patches included in new upstream release:
- refresh patches:
2018-07-04 -
- replace unicode-handle-the-ICU-version-hack-from-SuSE.patch
with more general upstream solution:
* An-attempt-to-fix-CORE-5764-need-feedback-on-snapsho.patch
* Fixed-a-code-somewhy-accepted-by-gcc6.patch
- unicode-handle-new-SUSE-ICU-version-hack.patch:
search also for "suse%d.%d" soname pattern to fix build after
upcoming ICU update (bsc#1095425)
2018-03-28 -
- move firebitd.xinetd back to firebird-server subpackage on SLE15
- provide /etc/xinetd.d directory on Tumbleweed and Leap 15.0 as
xinetd is no longer guaranteed to be present there; this solution
(suggested by Dimstar) is less painful than either having
firebird-server depend on xinetd or splitting a new subpackage
2018-03-23 -
- patch xinetd config file unconditionally; previous change would
result in unpatched xinetd config file installed on Tumbleweed
so that the service would be enabled by default and firebird
binary run as root
2018-03-22 -
- Do no ship xinetd file on SLE15 (bsc#1084459).
