You'll need to take that up with the listmasters.

This probably won't be the case now (the tomorrow morning bit - it'll
probably be longer), however if anyone really needs it, install the latest
pgAdmin II from and you'll get psqlodbc

I'm afraid I can't. I rarely use the cvs myself. Again though, the guys at have been upgrading/re-arranging the servers - perhaps if Marc's
still reading this thread he can supply the correct cvsroot.

Yes, Hiroshi's work is certainly appreciated here as well - the driver went
through a bit of a bad spell after Byron had to quit working on it, but
Hiroshi has certainly filled the gap.

Thanks, glad you like it. To be honest, I'm not sure how to implement
cursors in the datagrid... I'll add it to the todo list for future
consideration though.
