Firebird Super Server - an RDBMS based on InterBase 6.0 code

 Firebird is a relational database offering many ANSI SQL-99 features that
 runs on Linux, Windows, and a variety of Unix platforms. Firebird offers
 excellent concurrency, high performance, and powerful language support
 for stored procedures and triggers. It has been used on production systems
 under a variety of names since 1981.
 .
 The "super" architecture uses separate threads to handle each connection.
 It has its advantages (eg: is usually faster and more efficient for large
 numbers of clients) but is unable to use more that one CPU on an SMP
 system and under some circumstances a client may crash all server threads.
 .
 This package contains the 2.1 branch of Firebird.
 .
 Firebird is a commercially independent project of C and C++ programmers,
 technical advisors and supporters developing and enhancing a multi-platform
 relational database management system based on the source code released by
 Inprise Corp (now known as Borland Software Corp) under the InterBase Public
 License v.1.0 on 25 July, 2000.
