Would be nice to see rails 5 support, as it brings a lot of useful features like Cable and API mode

`rescue in block (2 levels) in require': There was an error while trying to load the gem 'activerecord-fb-adapter'. (Bundler::GemRequireError)
Gem Load Error is: uninitialized constant Arel::Visitors::VISITORS

Sorry for my ignorance, I'm new to rails, this error is because it is not to support rails 5.2, there is some solution, thanks and apologies again.

Nobody has stepped forward to add support for Rails 5.x.

My shop is migrating to Postgres, so I'll be looking for a new maintainer.

@rowland will there be blog post about reasons of migration from Firebird?

@funny-falcon I wasn't planning a blog post. When we first selected Interbase, eons ago, it was a little ahead of Postgres for the applications and platforms my shop was targeting. Since then, Postgres has iterated more rapidly than Firebird and now has a commanding lead. Running a 24/7/365 service with the kind of reliability and resilience our customers expect requires a better backup, replication and failover story than Firebird can tell. I've been nursing along a 3rd-party replication solution, but will be happy when that is a 1st-class feature. The richer data types offered by Postgres, such as JSON columns, will also be nice.

Hey @rowland and @mariuz, if anyone has questions that I can help with, I'm happy to help. I don't use firebird anymore though, so I probably won't be contributing any code.
