Repo Note: The master branch is an in development version of django-firebird. This may be substantially different from the latest release of django-firebird

This version of django-firebird is working with fbd [1], therefore it will work only with firebird 2.x and later. The stable version corresponds with django 1.8 and live into stable/1.8.x branch. The current master branch of this repository is being developed under django 1.9.x. For previous Django stable version check the branch list of this repository. fbd is the official stable python-firebird driver, also it has support for python 3.

Why the change from kinterbasdb to fdb?

If you want to know more about the differences between fdb and kinterbasdb you can look at:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.firebird.python/185/focus=187

http://pythonhosted.org//fdb/differences-from-kdb.html

If you still use kinterbasdb, the original google code repository has an updated django-firebird 1.4.x LTS version.
