A Phoronix reader and one of the developers of the FlameRobin project -- Marius Popa a.k.a. mAriuZ -- has brought to our attention that this database administration tool for Firebird DBMS has reached v0.6.0. This tool is available on multiple platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and the source-code itself is freely available for download. The Linux version of FlameRobin v0.6.0 uses GTK1 or GTK2. According to mAriuZ, the code compiles and works well also on x86_64 machines, or at least those running Ubuntu's Breezy Badger (v5.10). He also tells us, a pure 64-bit package available for downloading is in the works. More information on the FlameRobin project is available here.
