"Inprise/Borland (Nasdaq: INPR) today announced the availability
of the source code for InterBase 6.0, its cross-platform, standard
query language (SQL) relational database management system (RDMS).
Binary formats for the Linux, Windows and Solaris operating systems
are also available for download, free of charge. With Version 6.0,
Inprise/Borland introduces performance improvements, a higher level
of SQL92 compliance, and a replication engine."
"Developers worldwide have built InterBase into a multitude of
applications, taking advantage of InterBase's small footprint and
low maintenance requirements. Copies of the source code and binary
versions for Linux, Windows, and Solaris are available at the
Inprise/Borland Web site, www.inprise.com/interbase/."
"InterBase 6.0 has been released under a variant on the
Mozilla Public License (MPL) V1.1. Developers using InterBase under
this license can modify the code or develop applications without
being required to open source them. The open source license applies
to all platforms."
