InterBase ODBC change for 2013 and new update

There are two pieces of news related to the InterBase ODBC drivers. The DataDirect ODBC driver that was included with versions of InterBase prior to XE3 will no longer be distributed by Embarcadero as of April 11, 2013. If you need to download the old ODBC driver one last time prior to that, you can get it here on the InterBase registered user download page. Just search for DataDirect.  The new ODBC driver for InterBase (32-bit and 64-bit Windows) that shipped with InterBase XE3 is available to registered users of earlier versions of InterBase and has recently been updated with a fix for users working with Microsoft Access. Download the latest InterBase ODBC driver >
