This is the first release under new management at GBorg. Here's a list 
of changes in the new version, along with attributions:

1.20  Wed Nov 27 16:19:26 2002
       - Maintenance transferred to GBorg,
         http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/dbdpg/projdisplay.php. 
Incremented
         version number to reflect new management. [Bruce Momjian]
       - README cleaned up. [Bruce Momjian]
       - Added t/15funct.t, a series of tests that determine if the meta 
data
         is working. [Thomas Lowery]
       - Added implementations of column_info() and table_info(), and
         primary_key_info(). [Thomas Lowery]
       - The POD formatting was cleaned up. [David Wheeler]
       - The preparser was updated to better handle escaped characters. 
[Rudy
         Lippan]
       - Removed redundant use of strlen() in pg_error() (Jason E. 
Stewart).
       - Test suite cleaned up, converted to use Test::More, and updated 
to use
         standard DBI environment variables for connecting to a test 
database.
         [Jason E. Stewart]
       - Added eg/lotest.pl as a demonstration of using large objects in 
buffers
         rather than files. Contributed by Garth Webb.
       - Added LISTEN/NOTIFY functionality. Congributed by Alex Pilosov.
       - Added constants for common PostgreSQL data types, plus simple 
tests to
	make sure that they work. These are exportable via "use DBD::Pg
	qw(:pg_types);". [David Wheeler]
       - Deprecatated the undocumented (and invalid) use of SQL_BINARY in
	bind_param() and documented the correct approach: "bind_param($num,
	$val { pg_type => PG_BYTEA });". Use of SQL_BINARY in bind_param() will
         now issue a warning if $h->{Warn} is true. [David Wheeler]
       - Removed invalid (and broken) support for SQL_BINARY in quote(). 
[David
	Wheeler]
       - Added App::Info::RDBMS::PostgreSQL to the distribution (but it 
won't
         be installed) to help Makefile.PL find the PostgreSQL include 
and
         library files. [David Wheeler]
       - Fixed compile-time warnings. [David Wheeler and Jason E. 
Stewart]

Enjoy!

David
