I've been using 7.1devel for a few months w/ODBC (mostly Access, 
some VB), and it works fine for outer joins.

It does not however work well with the stock ODBC driver, which 
shows no tables. You should compile the driver from CVS sources. 
(This also fixes the referential-integrity-error problem).
