Vita Voom Software just released a new version of pgExpress Driver:

The Vita Voom pgExpress PostgreSQL dbExpress Driver is a Borland
Kylix/Delphi 6+/C++ Builder 6.0+ dbExpress Driver that directly access
PostgreSQL 7.1 or newer: no ODBC layer is needed. It can access use
almost all field types, and is compliant to the Borland specifications
of dbExpress drivers.

The pgExpress Driver is the core of the pgExpress Suite of components,
which provides the widest range of features for accessing PostgreSQL

Changes in this version include:

ADDED: Updated support to PostgreSQL v7.4.

CHANGED: Smarter libpq handling and locating, specially under Kylix.

CHANGED: The libpq library was updated to version 7.41. SSL dependency
was dropped since not everyone had SSL installed. Users that want SSL
suport should provide a SSL enabled libpq.

CHANGED: Varchar fields (with no size specifier) are now mapped to
VCL/CLX Memo fields, since they behave exactly like TEXT fields.

CHANGED: Internal enhancements make the metadata faster and use less memory.

CHANGED: Enhanced documentation/Section 1, "F.A.Q.".

CHANGED: With the PostgreSQL v7.4 support, a new notice processor was
introduced. The NOTICE messages generated by the server will not have
the "NOTICE: " prefix anymore. If someone wants the old behavior for
some reason, please mail us and we might be adding a special param for
this. Also, "ERROR:" will not be inserted before error messages anymore.

FIXED: Fixed a StoredProc bug that would prevent some functions to be
found/run successfully FIXED

FIXED: Fixed "Connection Timeout" D7 param (do not confuse with
pgExpress ConnectionTimeout special param).

FIXED: Fixed a bug in the GetColumns() interface.

FIXED: Fixed a VCL/CLX bug in the ISQLCommand.SetParameter() interface:
the VCL/CLX was passing Boolean, Date/DateTime and Bcd fields as having
length 0 (zero), instead SizeOf([type]). This made the pointer allocated
to parameter to be set to nil and cause a error in pgExpress. Now
pgExpress fixes itself the Length parameter.

Thanks for your attention.
