MWA Software is pleased to announce the release of IBX for Lazarus 1.4.0. This release includes two new components:

  • TIBXScript: An SQL script engine runs an SQL script from a file or stream.  The intention is to be ISQL compatible but with extensions.
  • TIBLocalDBSupport: a non-visual component supporting a TIBDatabase and intended to simplify the use of the embedded firebird server for Personal Database Application

There are also many bug fixes and new example applications. Release 1.4.0 has been tested with both Lazarus 1.4.4/FPC 2.6.2 and Lazarus 1.6RC2/FPC 3.0.0.

2015/7/10: MWA Software is pleased to announce that IBX for Lazarus release 1.3.1 is now available for download from here. This release includes some minor bug fixes for the IBControls, several important (albeit obscure) bug fixes in the main ibx source, and support for console mode programs.

Existing users are strongly advised to read the changelog before deployment, especially as regards the impact of console mode support.

2015/5/9: MWA Software is pleased to announce that Release 1.2.4 of IBX for Lazarus is now available. This version has a minimum support requirement of Lazarus 1.4/Free Pascal 2.6.4 and will not compile with earlier releases of Lazarus.

This release includes an internal SQL Parser supporting simple construction of dynamic queries e.g. using user selectable filters. It also includes three new controls making use of the parser. These are:

  • TIBLookupComboEditBox

  • TIBDynamicGrid

  • TIBTreeview


MWA Software is no longer able to support or provide new versions of the Firebird merge modules. This is because we are no longer active users of Microsoft Windows. All development work is now concentrated on Linux and Linux based applications.
