To follow up on that .

Downloaded 7.0 alpha and it is the same as 6.4 for now.

The migration assistant offers the chance to review a wiki page with
information about it, at

Which thanks mostly to Robert G. I believe has lots of good information
about it.

I can only pass on what I see in 6.4 right now.

On fresh install
- HSQLdb is still the default, but Firebird is available
- Opening an hsql based file does not trigger the migration assistant

Turn on Experimental features:
- Firebird becomes the default engine.
- connecting to an HSQL based base file will trigger the migration
-- this includes opening the HSQL based base file in any way, mail merge,
from the beamer window and vie the Base GUI.

Best wishes,

Release notes and related blog posts for Base 6.x say Firebird Embedded is
now the default, and DB files created using HSQLDB should be migrated to
Firebird. A Firebird Migration Assistant is mentioned. I’ve seen nothing
more about this (I may not be looking in the right places) and wonder how
much should be said in Getting Started Guide chapter on Base. Please
advise. Thanks.
