Hello I'm Finishing my Master Degree this Year (2015) in Information
Technology at Petru Maior University Romania

I will work this summer on finishing integration of Firebird backend

The main remaining issue is that the firebird data format embedded in the
.odb file is endianess-dependent. The idea is to switch to Firebird's
"archive" format that is not.

I started by cleaning the previous gerrit and submitting new one

Also as time permits fixing the following blockers for firebird integration

  bug 69949 <>
- table editor should support the autoincrement
  bug 71009 <>
- relationship management not implemented in GUI
  bug 71251 <>
- Creating table from default choices via wizard fails
  bug 74172 <>
- no data type DECIMAL/NUMERIC
  bug 76072 <>
- view creation not implemented

I will test also firebird 3.0 integration (it should work with old 2.5
c based api with no changes )

Some it's features would allow easy fixes for example autoincrement
(implemented as identity)

True boolean datatype ...

If nothing else is left to do i will create a branch with firebird 3.0
c++ oo api

Api will be Fronzen only after Beta2 according to the Firebird core developers
