SQL Maestro Group is happy to announce the release of Firebird Maestro 19.8, a powerful Windows GUI solution for Firebird administration and database development.

Please consider the list of new features implemented in this version since the last official release:

New feature highlights:

  • This version of the software has been successfully tested with all the modern database server versions up to Firebird 3.0.4 (the latest official version available at the moment).
  • Support for PSQL stored functions has been implemented (Firebird 3+). Such functions are scalar functions which can be called just like an internal function. Now you can create and edit stored function names, parameters and body using a powerful editor that comes with our product.

  • Support for external stored procedures and functions has been added (Firebird 3+). External procedures and functions are located in external modules. The special User Defined Routines (UDR) engine establishes a way to hook external modules into the server and make them available for use.

    To create an external procedure or function, turn ON the appropriate checkbox, specify an external module name and a name of function or procedure in this module.

  • Support for a number of data security protection new features has been implemented (Firebird 3+).
    • USAGE privileges can now be granted for exceptions and generators as well as EXECUTE privileges for packages and functions.
