Thanks, even if the problems with 7.5.02 are not solved in the short 
term at least a stable version is available.

I too would like to work on the ODBC driver, but just don't have the 
time. I feel that with the upcoming Windows port that the ODBC driver 
is going to be in more demand than ever. With no OLEDB driver 
available, all the non-.NET Windows developer will have is ODBC.

All those VB and Access people out there will certainly test the driver :-)

In the long term I would like to see the ODBC driver use libpq. Looking 
at the current source it seems to be re-inventing the wheel for no real 
good reason. I'm sure the code would be far less complex using libpq.
