Hi all,

One of TDF's recent tenders was to provide a means to automatically
migrate embedded hsqldb ODB files to embedded Firebird ones.

This has now been accomplished by Tamas Bunth, working for Collabora,
and the code pushed to the master branch, so it should already be
appearing in daily builds.

Testing is needed to report any problems.

At present, as I understand it, the conversion process is automatique
and transparent, which means that in principle, the change is invisible
to the user (bar any import errors, I imagine).

The change is also irreversible, which means that at least for testing
purposes, you should only use copies or specifically engineered test ODB
files at the moment.

The irreversible nature of the transformation means that it will no
longer be possible for older versions of LO that do not support
integrated Firebird databases (4.x and older ?) to be able to open the
newly migrated ODB files.

Please report any migration errors to the LibreOffice bugzilla.
