After a long development period, I'm pleased to announce the release of version 08.01.0100 of psqlODBC, the PostgreSQL ODBC Driver.
This release represents a major change to the driver over previous versions; in particular, the network code has been replaced with the PostgreSQL libpq library. This allows us to more easily take advantage of updates and new features that might be introduced to the PostgreSQL wire protocol, and also allowed us to upgrade straight away to the version 3 protocol which was previously unsupported. We were also able to add SSL support, as well as Kerberos authentication support.
From this release, two versions of the driver are provided for Windows, 'PostgreSQL ANSI' which supports single and multibyte applications through the ANSI ODBC API, and 'PostgreSQL Unicode' which provides Unicode support through the Unicode ODBC API. On Unix systems, the driver type may be selected via a configure option.
psqlODBC may be downloaded from http://www.postgresql.org/ftp/odbc/versions/ in source, Windows Installer, merge module, and basic zip file formats.
Please post any bug reports to the email@example.com mailing list.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved with the development, testing and bug fixing of the updated driver.
