Summary: Firebird RDBMS client library
Shared client library for Firebird SQL server. Can be used both to
connect to remote servers and to access local databases in embedded

* Wed Nov 21 2018
  - update to upstream version 3.0.4
    * add support for SRP authentication using SHA-256
    * ODS (database file format) version raised to 12.2 on some
      architectures (including i586, not x86_64); new version will be
      able to open existing ODS 12.0 created on the same architecture
      but for database transfer between architectures, backup/restore
      is always recommended

    with more general upstream solution:
    * An-attempt-to-fix-CORE-5764-need-feedback-on-snapsho.patch

* Wed Mar 28 2018
  - move firebitd.xinetd back to firebird-server subpackage on SLE15
  - provide /etc/xinetd.d directory on Tumbleweed and Leap 15.0 as
    xinetd is no longer guaranteed to be present there; this solution
    (suggested by Dimstar) is less painful than either having
    firebird-server depend on xinetd or splitting a new subpackage
* Fri Mar 23 2018
  - patch xinetd config file unconditionally; previous change would
    result in unpatched xinetd config file installed on Tumbleweed
    so that the service would be enabled by default and firebird
    binary run as root

    * show date and time of analysis in gstat output
    * show database info in sweep error message
    * provide compression details and encryption status of the
      connection in Attachment::getInfo() API call
    * fix RDB$RELATION_TYPE when restoring ODS < 11.1 database
    * the optimizer can now estimate the actual record compression
    * various performance improvements
    * various bug fixes, for a list, see release notes at

  - drop patches merged present in new upstream release:
  - update to current code:
* Wed Jun 29 2016
  - add fake "Provides: libfbembed-devel" to libfbclient-devel
    subpackage; this is a temporary workaround to allow LibreOffice
    build both before and after firebird is upgraded to verison 3.0
    in Factory; once FB3 is in Factory, LibreOffice BuildRequires
    can be updated to libfbclient-devel (based on %suse_version) and
    this hack can be dropped
* Tue May 31 2016
  - move and intl/ into firebird package as these
    are also needed by embedded connections
  - include /etc/firebird/firebird.conf.d/*.conf into configuration
  - move the directive restricting DatabaseAccess to /srv/firebird
    into a separate config file in firebird-server subpackage so
    that it doesn't affect embedded-only installs
  - do-not-use-DatabaseAccess-Full-in-default-config.patch:
    replaced by 50-server.conf
  - fix Group tag for libfbclient2 and libib_util subpackages
  - improve libib_util subpackage description
* Wed May 18 2016
  - libfbclient-devel cannot be used as a direct replacement for
    libfbembed-devel so it's better to stop pretending so
  - some packages have (unnecessary) explicit build requirement for
    firebird-devel whose contents was merged into libfbclient-devel;
    add corresponding Provides and Obsoletes
* Wed May 11 2016
  - Fix-locking-on-big-endian-architectures.patch:
    fix broken code (and failed build) on big endian architectures
  - explicitely require autoconf 2.67 or newer for build
* Wed May 11 2016
  - upgrade to upstream version 3.0.0 (final)
    * one executable for all modes => drop firebird-classic package
    * true SMP support in SuperServer

    * increased limits
    * support multiple security databases
    * boolean type
    * SQL packages
    * DDL triggers
    * window functions
    * statistical functions
    * scrollable cursors
    * IPv6 support
  - reorganize subpackages:
    * firebird: only common files needed for both client and server
    * firebird-server: server installation
    * libfbclient2: client library
    * firebird-utils: management utilities
    * libib_util: libib_util library (utility functions for UDF)
    * firebird-doc: documentation
    * firebird-examples: API examples
    * libfbclient-devel: devel files for libfbclient2

    * isql-fix-output-if-charset-is-different-from-locale.patch
    * Libreoffice-patch-C-11-new-delete-replacement-functi.patch
  - delete add-experimental-support-for-m68k-architecture.patch
    architecture specific settings are managed in a different way
    in 3.0 so that this would need a complete rewrite; as this
    has little chance to get upstreamed and I doubt anyone plans
    to actually run Firebird 3.0 on openSUSE on m68k, let's just
    drop it
