What's new in this version:

New Feature:
- Support was added for fast/low-latency “TCP Loopback Fast Path” functionality introduced in Windows 8 and Server 2012. This feature is said to improve the performance of the TCP stack for local loopback connections, by short-circuiting the TCP stack for local calls. The details of the feature can be found in this Microsoft Technet blog

Improvements:
- It is now possible to filter out info and warnings from the trace log
- Enhanced control capability when sharing the database crypt key between Superserver attachments
- The physical numbers of frequently used data pages are now cached to reduce the number of fetches of pointer pages
- A read-only transaction will no longer force write the HeaderTIP page content to disk immediately after a change. This improvement gives a significant performance gain where there are numerous light read-only transactions. At this stage, it affects only servers in SS mode. For CS and SC it is more complex to implement and should appear in Firebird 4.0
- The database name was made available to an encryption plug-in
- libfbclient.so was compiled for Android (x86/x86-64/arm64)
- Nesting of keys in a plug-in configuration was enabled
- The Linux code is now built with --enable-binreloc and an option was included in the installer script to install in locations other than /opt/firebird
- For Trace, a filter has been provided to INCLUDE / EXCLUDE errors by their mnemonical names
- Android port (arm32)
- A port was done and tested for Linux on the ancient Motorola 680000 CPU platform to satisfy some requirement from Debian
- Support has been added to enable SELECT expressions to be valid operands for the BETWEEN predicate
