	Dear Dave,
	 
	For a few years I'm using postgresql now, but just resently I
found out about pgAdmin (I did hear of it before, but never used it).
Before, I alway's used the psql command-line tool for linux. I really
like the pgAdmin tool and pitty it that I didn't try it before... It has
great features for visualizing the database. But I'm still missing some
features. I looked at your todo list, but they weren't there so I
thought I'll mail them to you. Hopefully you like them as well and will
add them in future versions.
	 
	The features:
	* The visualization of the system tables and views (all pg_*
tables), in psql this is shown with "\dS" command 
	 

You can view these already. switch on 'System Objects' on the 'Display'
menu and then look in the pg_catalog schema for each database.

	 
	* The visualization of other/system schema's. From 7.4.0 there
are several different schema's e.i. the information_schema. They can be
listed in psql with the command "\dn" 
	 

'System Objects' will show these as well.

	 
	* Code-completion in the SQL tool in pgAdmin whould be very
nice. Maybe similar to the psql tool by using Tab to complete things or
maybe by using a popup-dropdownbox as it is used in (object oriented)
programming languages. 
	 

Hmm, that's a good one. I'll add that to the todo. The editor control
can already do drop-downs I believe so that shouldn't be beyond the
realms of possibility.

	 
	* An other thing, but this might be a bug, I encounterd was
that, if I tried to connect to a new but offline server, I first have to
change a field in the properties window before I can click OK again.
There is a good reason for disabling the OK button if no data was
changed, but here the server was offline and all settings where OK. If
for instance the address of the new server is missing I can understand
that the OK button is disabled, the address is a vital thing for the
connection. 
	 

Andreas; do you have a minute to look at that? (should have loads more
time after next week - promise!! :-p ).

	 
	* Another nice feature would be the possibillity to change the
languages. I'm Dutch, but when it comes to programming business I prefer
english. Main reason for that is that most terms used are english.
	 

Look under File -> Options to change the user language.

	Hopefully you like these features as well and are able to add
them the a future version.
	 

 
Thanks for your feedback :-)
 
Regards, Dave
