Hello !

Vita Voom Software just released a new version of pgExpress Driver:
v0.96a. This version is a maintenance release of v0.96 released Apr 15,

The Vita Voom  pgExpress  PostgreSQL dbExpress Driver is a Borland
Kylix/Delphi 6+ Driver that directly access PostgreSQL 7.1+ databases:
no ODBC layer is needed. It can access PostgreSQL 7.1+ databases, use
almost all field types, and is compliant to the Borland specifications
of dbExpress drivers.
Since version 0.95, pgExpress includes support for stored procedures
(emulated through PostgreSQL Functions).

The pgExpress Driver is the core of the pgExpress Suite of
components, which provides the widest range of support to accessing
PostgreSQL databases.

Changes in this version include:

ADDED - Int8 support as Bcd (PostgreSQL [numeric] field). They should
 work transparently to the end user as they were Int8 fields. This
 wasn't on the previous  version because there are many bugs related
 to Bcd fields on Delphi 6; they were fixed on Update Packs 1 and 2.
 We think however that with took  extra care in the implementation to
 avoid raising such  bugs even on plain Delphi 6 (without service
 packs). We urge you, however, to update  your Delphi distribution to
 the latest service pack to ensure everything will  work ok. Kylix
 (specially v1) seems to suffer from the same bugs;  please update it
 too. Int8 as Bcd is the new default mapping  for Int8 fields. Please
 use the Int8Mode driver option if you  want to change it.
FIXED - Under certain conditions, a failed database login could lead to a
 driver exception. This bug was introduced on v0.96.

Thanks for your attention.
