1. New components (TpFIBNBackupService and TpFIBNRestoreService) have been added for NBackUp support for Firebird 2.5

2. Now Array fields are supported for —++ Builder XE.

3. The TpFIBDataSet component has methods for data export from tables:

procedure ExportDataToScript(Output: TStrings; TableName: string = ''; AllFields: boolean = False);

procedure ExportDataToScriptFile(const FileName: string; TableName: string = ''; AllFields: boolean = False);

Both of the methods export data from the Select query as an SQL script either into a TStrings object or to a file. TableName enables you to set a data limit retrieved in the query for a certain table of this query. If the AllFields parameter is set to True, it enables you to export values of all query fields irrespective of the table which they belong to. The resulting script uses the "execute block" statement, which reduces the query execution period in ten times (if compared with consecutive Insert calls).

4. Now FIBPlus supports a new version of MDT.

Bugs fixed

1. An error in the Locate method has been fixed. It occurred if the options loPartialKey + loCaseInsensitive were active in Delphi 5 - 2007.

2. BLOB field values were obtained incorrectly from BlobField.AsString.

3. In the SQL-editor the server-side calculated fields incorrectly appeared in the modified queries. Fixed.

4. An error of the ExtLocate method appeared in TpFIBDataset with the limited buffer size mode (cmkLimitedBufferSize). Fixed.

5. An error of work with bookmarks in TpFIBDataset appeared with the limited buffer size mode (cmkLimitedBufferSize). Fixed.

6. An error in the RecordFieldValue method of the TpFIBDataset component has been fixed.

7. Problems with the SQL text editor sometimes appeared on Copy/Paste operations. Fixed.

8. Errors with the SQL text editor have been fixed. They occurred in cases when only some of the modified queries were empty, while the rest were not.

9. The client library (gds32,fbclient) loaded only for the first connection. Fixed.

10. An error with the poDontCloseAfterEndTransaction option on working with datasets with BLOB-fields. 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! >>
