Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.4 Released


You can now use CMake for Linux C++ development in Visual Studio

That could be interesting in cross compiling Firebird from Windows side to Linux/WSL

Firebird 3 on Apple IOS

One side effect of new Firebird 3.0.3 builds for Apple Macosx is that now there is a Mach-O dynamically linked shared library for arm_v7 that can be used on IOS.
You can ask for details on Firebird-devel 
ps: For Firebird 2.5.x there is a build on Paul's blog also Egor Pugin created Cmake files for IOS Builds (I didn't tested that route yet)
