5 + 2. New FB4 data types TIME WITH TIME ZONE, TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE, DECFLOAT and
6 +   extended precision NUMERIC fields are supported.
7 +
8 + 3. TFmtBCDField is used to support access to DECFLOAT and extended precision NUMERIC fields.
9 +
10 + 4. TIBDateTimeField and TIBTimeField are introduced in support of TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE
11 +   and TIME WITH TIME ZONE fields. These inherit from TDateTimeField.
12 +
13 + 5. IBExtract now supports FB4 enhancements:
14 +   - new data types as above
15 +   - Identity column extensions
16 +   - Default user role
17 +   - SQL Security clause for Database, Tables, Procedures, Functions and Triggers

22 + 7. IBExtract: revert create trigger to legacy syntax see Firebird CORE-6243, CORE-5545 and DOC-145
23 +
24 + 8. IBXServices: Server version no. parsing now allows any letter before major version number
25 +   and is no longer restricted to 'V' e.g. "LI-T4.0.0.1436 Firebird 4.0 Beta 1"
26 +
27 + 9. TIBDataSet and TIBQuery: new property TZTextOption. Used to determine the default
28 +   format for rendering a time zone.
29 +
30 + 10. TIBDataSet and TIBQuery: new property DefaultTZDate. Used to provide the default date
31 +     to convert TIME WITH TIME ZONE data type values to and from GMT.
32 +
33 + 11. Unit name IBTypes changed to IBInternals. Internal interfaces TIBGUIInterface and TIBTimerInf renamed to
34 +    IIBGUIInterface and IIBTimerInf respectively.
35 +
36 + 12. Constants: DPBPrefix and TPBPrefix moved to IB unit. DPBConstantNames and TPBConstantNames
37 +    now accessible as properties of TIBDatabase and TIBTransaction respectively.
38 +
39 + 13. String Fields: when a fixed character with (CHAR) field is returned, it is now
40 +    truncated to its fixed character width rather than being right padded with
41 +    white space to the maximum data size.
42 +
43 + 14. TIBTable.Empty table. In additional to deleting all records in the underlying
44 +    table, the internal buffers are now also flushed ensuring that the TIBTable is
45 +    also empty.

47 + 15. TBatchSQLStatementReader: Line buffer is now cleared on call to reset.
48 +
49 + 16. TIBXControlService descendents: DatabaseName may now be set using a database

52 + 17. DBControlGrid: Minor bug fixes. avoid AV on form closure, avoid black panel
53 +
54 + 18. TIBExtract: Data type of COMPUTED By columns is no longer included in SQL.

56 + 19. Local database on Linux and with legacy API and FB 2.5 embedded server: fixed problem with password
57 +    not being present as required.
58 +
59 + 20. IBTreeView split into DBTreeView and IBTreeView. This former is an IBX indepedent
60 +    version that can be customised to work with other database drivers.

62   IBX Change Log  version (2.3-5 Build 12350) Tue, 25 Aug 2020 16:11:02 +0100
63  
64   1.  TIBStringField: when a string value is read from a dataset buffer, if the
# Line 10 | Line 71
71      SQLFilterParams property is assumed to be a SQL condition clause and
72      ANDed into the Where clause of the SQL Select statement provided as a
73      dataset property. Each such SQL condition thus acts as an additional filter
74 <    on the dataset. (Not yet tested)
74 >    on the dataset.
75  
76   3.  The Filtered property inherited from TDataset is no longer used for SQL (server
77      side filters).
# Line 45 | Line 106
106      added back in.
107  
108   12. IBCustomDataSet: CanInsert, CanEdit, CanDelete and CanRefresh updated to return
109 <    false if query contains white space and not just empty.
109 >    false if query contains only white space and not just empty.
110  
111   12. IBCustomDataset: Blob data is now cleared when TDataSet.Cancel is called. This
112      should ensure that (e.g.) a TDBMemo is correctly refreshed after a dataset edit
113      is cancelled.
114  
115 + 13. IBCustomDataset: SetArrayIntf should no longer cause an access violation if
116 +    called on a null field.
117 +
118 + 14. IBCustomDataSet: An access violation should no longer occur when calling CancelUpdates
119 +    results in an empty dataTC86                Client side Filtered Dataset    1       X
120 + set.
121 +
122 + 15. IBCustomDataSet: OnUpdateError should now be called in all circumstances when
123 +    a cached update is applied and an exception is raised.
124 +
125 + 16. IBCustomDataSet: Avoid access violation when SetBookmarkData called with nil pointer.
126 +
127 + 17. Console Mode Local Database support: backup/restore should now work correctly.
128 +
129 + 18. Local Database Support: if an upgrade fails, a downgrade is now performed if
130 +    possible and an exception raised.
131 +
132 + 19. MinimumVersionNo added to Local Database Support. Database will not open if
