Software update: Firebird 2.1.3 rc2

Well-known databases for storing large amounts of data are of course Oracle with its 11g database, IBM with the DB2 database and Microsoft with SQL Server. Another database management system is Firebird, which has its origin in Inprise’s Interbase database, today known as Borland Software, whose history dates back to this page can be read. This relational database can be installed on a variety of operating systems, including the Linux and Windows platforms, making it widely deployable. The developers have released the second release candidate of version 2.1.3 with the following abbreviated announcement:
