New version 188.8.131.52 of ADO.NET provider for Firebird is ready for download. The story of this version is finalizers. Yeah.
The finalizers in provider were not correct on all places and oftentimes really not needed. The code was usually trying to band-aid programmers’ mistakes (bad idea) causing reentrancy problems (the famous
NullReferenceExceptions in finalizer thread). No more. These lines are gone and left only on places where it makes sense, highly isolated.
Overview of changes can be found in tracker.
