New features and enhancements:
  1. 1. Two TFIBDatabase methods supporting new commands RDB$GET_CONTEXT and RDB$SET_CONTEXT implemented in Firebird 2 have been added.

    function GetContextVariable (ContextSpace: TFBContextSpace; const VarName: string): Variant;
    procedure SetContextVariable (ContextSpace: TFBContextSpace; const VarName, VarValue: string);

Bugs fixed:

  1. 1. An error in the TpFIBQuery.SetAsExtended method. Fixed.
  2. A minor memory leak in RegUtils. Fixed.
  3. An error occurring on writing into a Blob field with TDataSetProvider. Fixed.
  4. An error "Can't read buffer. Invalid RecordNo”, occurred under certain conditions. Fixed.
  5. Wrong results of calling the Refresh method in TpFIBDataSet occurred under certain conditions. Fixed.
  6. An error on reading a Blob field in the OnCalcFields handler. Fixed.
  7. An error in the Locate method of the TpFIBDataSet component occurred in case when not all records were fetched from the server. Fixed.
  8. Wrong results of the Origin property with FieldOriginRule = forNoRule Fixed.
  9. An error of generating SQL statements with UpdateOnlyModifiedFields=True in the TpFIBDataSet component (appeared in NUMERIC(18,x) fields on trying to replace the NULL value by 0 and vice versa. FIBPlus wrongly considered these fields non changeable).
  10. Wrong work of DisplayFormat for NUMERIC(18,x) fields. It occurred on using non mask symbols, i.e. "$ #,000 and 00 cents". Fixed.
  11. An error in client calculated fields. (The buffer was not cleared before the field calculation. The error occurred in case when a field was calculated for the previous record, not for the current one in OnCalcFields. Then, instead of an empty value, the previous record value was shown in the current record). Fixed.
  12. Wrong search of the True Boolean value in TpFIBBooleanField. Fixed.
  13. An AV in TFIBStringField occurred under certain conditions when using the psSetEmptyStrToNull property. Fixed.
  14. Useless quotes in the automatic GeneratorName value. Fixed.
  15. An error of defining key fields in SQLEditor Fixed.
  16. Nested parameters were not set in RefreshSQL on using macros. Fixed.

We are a small software company with thousands of customers delivering comany wide systems including accounting, logistics, e-commerce, POS, sales etc etc. Several years ago, when we were still a very small company, we used Delphi 3 and Paradox combined with BDE. As our system (and customer base) grew I decided to switch to Delphi 5 and Interbase. Being a huge improvement over Delphi 3 and Paradox, I encountered numerous problems with IBX: memory leaks, performance issues and other problems. Borland was not to be bothered: IBX was provided "as is" and no support was avaliable. 
Not being very eager to use third party components with Delphi at first, I decided to give FIBPlus a try. At once all problems where gone: no more memory leaks and  performance was very consistent. 
But the real advantage of switching to FIBPlus came with the upgrade to D2005: after upgrading there were some problems with the new FIBPlus version. After emailing the problem I received an update within an hour! And this was at 11 pm! A few other (smaller) errors where handled in the same way. 
Our motto is: software is as good as its support. And support of Devrace is just great!
Just a little indication of our FIBPlus use: all our software runs 100% on FIBPlus. Our customers have a total of aprox. 4.800 Firebird databases in production, with a combined size of over 130TB and over 80 million transactions a day. Every
day. And FIBPlus has not failed a single transaction. Not once. There is, however, one (minor) drawback in using FIBPlus: while debugging an application which uses and invalid SQL instruction, de Delphi Debugger returns to the FIBPlus code instead of to our calling code (where the actual error comes from), thereby complicating de debug proces a little. But that is a very small price to pay for a otherwise brilliant third party solution! >>
