No it isn't. Higher psqlODBC version may be better. There are
some known problems between 07.03 and 08.01 (I'm sorry I don't know
if the problem raised between 07.03 and 08.00 or between 08.00 and
08.01).
08.01 is libpq based. It means that 08.01 is using libpq calls when
communicate with backend.
We follow backend version numbering but we may be backward compatible
(08.01 my be backward compatible with 7.3 at least).

Yes it's true.

If you have no problem you can use the version which better suite to
you (time comparsing or whatever you want).

I'm recommending 08.01.0107. But I advise you test the psqlODBC before
you use it in production. 08.01.0107 has a many bug fixes againist
08.01.0102. Some of the changes could create another bug which we
haven't find yet ...

If you read 08.01.0107 release notes we're close to releasing new
stable release. There is 64-bit compatibility problem which we marked
as release stopper. I hope we'll solve the 64-bit issue quite soon
(week or two).

I hope I don't add you more questions then answers.

Luf
