Source and binary packages for Windows (setup.exe and .zip) and Linux (gtk1 and gtk2 variants) are available for download. MacOSX and Debian/Ubuntu ones should follow soon (and probably FreeBSD one too). We are also looking for someone to try if things work on Solaris too.

New features
- System tables now are available in main tree view
- Compatibility with Firebird 2.0
- SQL editor: Autocompletion of column/parameter names and old/new aliases in triggers

Enhancements and Bug fixes
- SQL Editor: Use row:col instead of col:row in statusbar
- SQL Editor: Autocompletion now works for case
- sensitive object names
- SQL Editor: Autocompletion now works for names containing $ character
- Data grid: "Fetch all records" and "Cancel fetching all records" commands
- Data grid: "Copy records as Update" command
- SQL script execution now always stops on error
- Confirm dropping of items from main tree
- Fixed bugs related to character set conversions
- Fixed DDL extraction for various object types

I would love to see the feature to create data model from the schema with one click.

Today i was trying to use DBSchemaViewer plugin for Eclipse which supports firebird too. But I was not successful in using it so I thought to ask you guys, whether you guys are planning for any such kind of facility for flamerobin.

FlameRobin 0.75 is looking great! Just a little one: when can we see blob data in the datagrid? I mean, you've got support for system tables (which I use, so thanks!), but there are many placesw here blobs are used in those tables -- I can't view that info through my favourite DB tool (FlameRobin) -- I have to go use the crappy DBWorkbench I have installed to do that. Please, Please, Please can we have blob support?
