Hi all,

In past two months, I was working to improve the ecpg manual,
and work for a draft of the new manual is now 90% finished.
This document is getting very similar to the final edition,
so I hope to introduce to you.

In this version, following chapters has been changed.

- The Concept
- Managing the Database Connections
- Running SQL Commands
- Dynamic SQL
- Error Handling

Some are reorganized, some are rewritten and many things are
newly added.

So please check the new one, and hope to get some feedbacks
from pg guys.

- Browsable manual

- Archived manual in ZIP file

Any feedback and comments would be appreciated.
