-Actually, first quarter of 2010, the last official release is Firebird 2.1.32-bit and 64-bit for windows, but for many reasons are downloadable and installable also  1.5.* and 2.0.* versions for windows 32-bit only.+The best official stable release is Firebird 2.5.32-bit and 64-bit for Windows.
 Beware that your web application server may be running a different OS from database server. That means that you can have a web server trying to connect a firebird database server running on Linux or other Unixes. If this is the case you must deploy anyway the correct firebird's client library and install in system directory. Beware that your web application server may be running a different OS from database server.
