Nick,

I think you will need to wait a few days.  Dave hasn't yet checked in 
his fixes for this.  Once he does, I will make new builds of the jar 
files and post them on jdbc.postgresql.org.

The 7.2 jars should be backwardly compatible with a 7.1 database.  We 
have tried in this release to provide backward compatibility.  The 7.2 
driver should also work against 7.0 (at least as well as the 7.1 driver 
worked against 7.0).

thanks,
--Barry
