IBPP Version 2.2 is about to be released in some days. It won't contains
changes regarding dates support because it's too close to the release to
play with that. Though it will become a priority for the next release,
2.3 or 3.0.
For info, you can subscribe to the list 'ibpp-discuss'
(http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/ibpp-discuss) which is
quite low-volume mailing list or simply keep an eye on the project
repository at http://sourceforge.net/projects/ibpp.

Correction on what I said earlier (my memory chips are sometimes a bit
floppy): as it is today and for the last 3 years, IBPP should support
the following range of dates : 1 Jan 1900 to 31 Dec 9999.
That's not the full range that InterBase/Firebird support, yes, but that
should not have been a reason for a problem with birthdates, except you
need Abraham Lincoln or Victor Hugo birthday in your db.
I will have to review this carefully, there must be a bug somewhere if
dates < 1970 gave you an issue.
Can we move any followup to this conversation to ibpp-discuss own list,
where it belongs ? This is out-of-topic here.
