Hi Dave/Peter,

Dave: As you know, we have spent quite a long time preparing the gap
analysis document between version 3.0 and 3.5x, and there was no
response at all to that :-(

I do not know why they are not enabled by default, but you should be
able to enable them using --with-odbcver=0x0351.

We have not implemented any additional APIs in the libpq version. All
the APIs are the same as in the old driver. If somebody is interested,
they can go through the gap analysis document and suggest some useful
APIs to add, so that someone could take it up and work on that.

The gap analysis document can be found here:

ls

Regards,
Anoop
