We are happy to announce that InterBase 2020 Update 2 has been released today. Building on the solid foundation of InterBase 2020, the new update includes a few new features and addresses some customer issues. For general InterBase information see www.embarcadero.com/products/interbase and www.interbase.com.
InterBase 2020 Update 2 extends database support for Common Table Expressions by supporting recursive CTE. It also adds to the ISQL dialect the ability to extract information based on features added in recent years (EUA database setup and EUA user records, Change View Subscription definitions and their use in Database/Table schemas, Encryption Key definitions). InterBase 2020 Update 2 offers fixes for over 40 reported issues, including those already addressed in InterBase 2020 Update 1 Hotfixes 1 and 2. You can find more information on the product and this update release on the InterBase doc wiki what’s new page and also check the release 2 readme.
Moreover, the ToGo Edition of InterBase 2020 Update 2 adds native support for macOS ARM CPUs, by offering a universal binary package (combining the Intel and ARM binaries) for macOS deployment. The pre-release version of this support can be found in recently-released Embarcadero RAD Studio 11. Finally, we want to remind you that this year Embarcadero also significantly updated the ADO.NET driver for InterBase, available on NuGet and GitHub as described at https://docwiki.embarcadero.com/InterBase/2020/en/ADO.NET_Driver.
