Project information, including cvs instructions:
This version supports many of the newer PostgreSQL features, including
prepared statements, SQLSTATE codes, error levels, and server tracing.
The complete Change list from the last version (1.32):
        - Added $dbh->func($filehandle, 'server_trace') [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Added $dbh->{pg_errorlevel}. [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Fix utf8 quote() support [Dominic Mitchell <dom(at)semantico(dot)com>]
        - Added explicit support for types SQL_BOOLEAN, DATE, TIME,
                TIMESTAMP, and TIMESTAMPTZ. Return correct values for
                DATEOID and TIMEOID. [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Added tablespace support for table_info and primary_key_info.
                [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Added new attributes to $dbh: pg_db, pg_user, pg_pass,
                pg_host, pg_port, pg_options, pg_socket, pg_pid
                [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Minor fixes in quote.c, dbdimp.c, and types.h
                [Christophe Martin: schplurtz at]
        - Added support for SQLSTATE via $dbh->state and $sth->state
                [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Major overhaul of prepare/execute to handle new server-side
                prepare system. See for details. [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Make the tests honor the DBD_SCHEMA variable instead of
                assuming that the "public" schema is available.
                [Rainer Weikusat]
        - dbdimp.c cleanups: better error messages, ensure commit
                is only called once after a transaction fails.
                [Alexey Slynko]
        - primary_key() returns empty list not undef if no match.
                [Julian Mehnle]
        - Added the pg_protocol database handle attribute
                [Greg Sabino Mullane]
        - Changed "noprefix" to pg_noprefix
