IBX for Lazarus
MWA Software is pleased to announce the immediate availability of IBX for Lazarus (release 1.1-0). IBX for Lazarus is derived from the Open Source edition of IBX published by Borland/Inprise in 2000 under the InterBase Public License. This version has been brought up-to-date by MWA Software and focused on the Firebird Database API for both Linux and Windows platforms. It is released under the InterBase Public License for the original code and under the compatible Initial Developers Public License for new software. Both Licenses permit commercial use.
MWA Software has provided and will continue to support its JPEG, GIF and Texting editing components for Delphi/C++Builder 2007 and older. However, recognising that all of our current business is moving rapidly to Linux based systems, we are currently not planning to upgrade internally to later versions of Delphi/C++ Builder and hence make no offers of support for later versions. Our users may wish to note that Delphi 2007 compiled programs appear to work very well under Linux/Wine.
