Hello *,

Tamas Bunth has just sent this email to the dev list announcing the
migration of Base documents from HSQLDB to Firebird.

I'd like to ask everyone having old HSQLDB documents to test them in
master ( https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/ ) and see
whether everything works as expected.

If you find any problem, please report it to Bugzilla asap so Tamas can
fix it before LibreOffice 6.1 is released.

I recently finished the majority of HSQLDB database migration inside Base
documents. You can test it with opening an old .odb file which contains embedded
HSQL database.

As part of this project I also:

- removed "experimental" marker from Firebird.

- removed the ability to create embedded HSQLDB documents from wizard. Now
  embedded Firebird is the default choice.

- Erased the hsqldb code entirely:

I would like to ask you to CC me to any upcoming problems related to the
migration or dbaccess. I'll try to do my best to make Base a reliable and useful
part of LibreOffice.


Thank you,
Tamás Bunth
