Inprise.com: Open Letter to Our InterBase Customers

We are pleased to issue this statement of direction with
regards to the InterBase® open source project and our
commercial releases of InterBase.
We are committed to
supporting the InterBase product line, our valued customers, and
the many respected partners and third-parties who add value to the
product and provide quality support and services to the many
InterBase customers worldwide.”

“We feel there is much to be gained from the collective
enthusiasm and talent inherent in the open source movement, notably
the ability to further InterBase by tapping the many and varied
resources available in the community. We feel it is important that
Inprise/Borland continues to provide our installed base – including
corporate customers, VARs, OEMs, and government clients – with
certified commercial releases. So, we have determined to both
actively support our InterBase open source project and continue to
certify and release commercial versions of InterBase.”

“Over the past few weeks, we have been working to make our
InterBase project hosted on Source Forge[tm] more complete and
better organized. Currently there are four projects hosted on
Source Forge by Inprise:

The main InterBase 6.0 project
IBConsole
InterBase Express
InterClient”
