It's unlikely. On the plus side though, one of the reasons I'm busy is
that it's me that's building the win32 installer atm. I'm currently
shipping the version of the driver that happens to be on my machine,
however it will be released with stable versions of *all* code when we
go gold.

Yeah, well pgadmin is my project as well :-) In fact it's the reason why
I originally got involved in the ODBC driver, and now have far less
interest as we use libpq nowadays. I should stress though, that my
involvement with psqlODBC has always been more on the management of
releases and Gborg than the coding, so even if I did have more time, I
wouldn't necessarily be much more help.

Regards, Dave.
