Still up and no odbc errors since the conversion.
Course folks can grab a snapshot version and get what I built a few weeks
ago (maybe newer).

So I guess its your call, My vote is it seems pretty safe vrs the old one.

In my experience the new driver is better than the older one.  In fact,
it specifically addressed some issues people (Joel) were having in high
load production systems.

That being said, why not wait for the 8.1 release of postgresql and
release the odbc drive 8.1 at the same time?  That gives 1-2 more months
of testing and feedback.
