Where can I download Firebird 3?

Firebird 3 is in alpha development stage (see roadmap for details), and it means that it's published as "snapshots" - regular builds from the current source code. Snapshots can be found at Firebird SQL web site: http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/snapshot-builds/.

They contain also code for future minor releases for Firebird 2.x, so look carefully what you download. Source code behind these snapshots (as well as other Firebird versions) is stored in Firebird code repositiory: now it's in trunk, and later, at beta stage, it will be forked to the separate branch.

At the moment SVN URL for Firebird 3 is https://firebird.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/firebird/firebird/trunk
 (to extract sources you need SVN client like Tortoise SVN).

In fact, there is no need to get source code, until you are not a C++ developer with intention to join Firebird Project. Snapshots are enough to have a quick look at Firebird 3 and play with it.
