Since the PostgreSQL website isn't updated anymore,
I didn't follow the discussion. Which changes do you mean?
Did you lose all your new work? Or what do you mean
with all premises? The whole driver?

Personally I think that PostgreSQL will only be
of interest for many users if you can use it
from Windows. For that purpose you need
a working ODBC-driver. And it must support
(at least) all important features of the ODBC
specification. That's why I think that the 
psqlodbc.dll is one of the most important 
projects. Otherwise I would be forced to use 
a commercial database.

I guess so.

No, no your english is ok.
(saying this, I'm not a native english speaking person)

I thought it must be something like this.
I just tested it. So 'Common' shows you the
default setting and you can change that now.
Good feature! 
What puzzles me a bit is that I would expect 
a new window where I could change the
default behaviour.
Hmm, why don't we call it 'show/change default'?
Or something similiar.
Even though a new window would clarify things.
