The initial support of FB4

Hello Everyone.

The new IBProvider Trial [build 42030] includes the initial support for Firebird v4.

The primary limitation: this version is not able to read and write values with new datatypes (INT128, DECFLOATxx, TIME/TIMESTAMP WITH TIME ZONE) but you can read the metadata of these things.

You can connect to FB4 through fbclient.dll and directly ( Second method is preferred.

The direct connection to FB4 uses thirteenth protocol and supports all the things of FB3.

This version contains many others changes and as mininum a couple of bug fixes, too.

All the standard tests were passed and of course they continue working right now.

Let us know if you have any problems or questions.
