Default ThumbsPlus expands database support

ThumbsPlus (the photo file manager) stores its thumbnails in a database. Until recently, it was limited to using the Microsoft Access JET format, which is limited to 2 gigs. But now, it also supports MS SQL Server, Sybase SQL, MySQL, PostgreSQL, IBM DB2, and Firebird. You can read more about this here: http://www.cerious.com/databases.shtml

The Firebird database is a new one to me, so I visited their site. I learned that it's based on Borland InterBase. http://www.firebirdsql.org/.

Interesting that they call if Firebird. The obvious next step would be to bundle it with a word processor and spreadsheet. Then call it the Firebird Suite.
