I've uploaded a new snapshot of the libpq based version of psqlODBC to It will propagate onto the mirrors and the file listing on the website within the next day or so.

Important changes in this release include:

- SSL support

- Fixed a nasty SQLGetData/SQL_C_WCHAR bug that basically completely broke piecemeal retrieval of Unicode strings. This is believed to be /the/ bug that stopped many users using versions newer than 07.03.0200.

- Fixed a bug new to the libpq version of the driver that prevented ODBCbench running properly in multithread transactional mode, and completely broke Use Declare/Fetch mode.

Please take some time to test this driver and report any bugs to pgsql-odbc(at)postgresql(dot)org(dot) 

Regards, Dave.

Change list

- Added SSL support
- Fix some errors found by static source analysis (using Klocwork). [Tomas Skäre]
- In SC_pos_reload_needed:2189 rows_per_fetch is uninitialised, if create_from_scratch is false, per Tomas Skäre
- In SQLGetDescFieldW:128 blen is not initialised before sent to utf8_to_ucs2(). The same thing exists in SQLColAttributeW:287 and SQLGetDiagFieldW:345, per Tomas Skäre
- Get proper error messages from the server, rather than just saying the database doesn't exist.
- Japanese GUI update from Hiroshi Saito
- Include win_unicode.c in Unix build because it contains functions that are used under unix.
- Fix SQL_MAX_IDENTIFIER_LEN per gborg bug ref: 1348
- Fix memory leak per gborg bug 1356 [pauldaugherty]
- Fix unicode copy & convert bug. SQLGetData with SQL_C_WCHAR now returns SQL_SUCCESS once the whole string is sent, and doesn't lose odd characters like it did.
- Fix bug that stopped Use Declare/Fetch working, and prevented ODBC bench running in multi-thread, multi-transaction mode.
- Add comment about a known leak bug that needs fixing
- Handle SQL_DATE from ODBC2 apps, per bug report 1292 [	alic <NOSPAM>]
- Fix per bug ref 1187 [Scot Loach]
