MWA Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.3 of IBX for Lazarus. This version rolls together recent bug fixes and is also necessary for compilation with the fixes3_2 branch of the Free Pascal Compiler. The latest FPC fixes branch has added additional elements to TFieldType. Earlier versions of IBX will not compile with this update to TFieldType. You must upgrade to IBX 2.4.3 in order to use the latest version of FPC.

IBX 2.4.3 and the underlying Firebird Pascal API now include support for Firebird scrollable cursors. However, due to a limitation in Firebird (there is no wire protocol implementation for scrollable cursors) this feature is only available for local database connections.

MWA Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.2 of IBX for Lazarus. This version adds support for the Firebird 4 IBatch interface. It also fixes some minor bugs. Version 2.4.2 supports all Firebird releases from 2.5 onwards.

The Firebird 4 Batch Execution interface applies to Update and Insert queries only (i.e. not update/insert returning) and can be used to batch up many separate queries to be executed as a single operation. This can be used to minimise the client/server interfaces and to optimise server update/insert times.

Support is provided by the Firebird Pascal API and exposed via TIBSQL.

MWA Software is pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.1 of IBX for Lazarus. This is a maintenance release that fixes a problem with using Firebird 4.0.0. The fix for this problem has already been published in the SVN Repository. All users should upgrade to this version. It is available for download from

Firebird 4.0.0 was released on 1st June. A small change from Firebird 4 rc1 has exposed a typo in the Firebird Pascal Interface file FB30Statement.pas that can result in an unknown data type error.

This has been fixed in the SVN release, but has not yet been progressed into the release zips. There will be a few days delay before re-issuing the zip files. This delay is intended to ensure that no other bugs are reported that affect Firebird 4.0.0 users.
