UTF support in WIN32 native and Lower/Upper in 7.5 release

P: n/a
I'm looking at "TODO list for PostgreSQL" and "Fix upper()/lower() to
work for multibyte encodings" has no dash (-) -- so it won't be made in
7.5 ?

Another question is about WIN32 native release - currently, all win
users cannot set locales, becouse Cygwin does not support it -- I hope
that it will be solved in native release, so UTF-8 should work as well ??

Just wanted to know how to plan my further work. Thanks.

An item in the TODO list only gets a dash when it is complete. The fact
that it does not have a dash does not mean that there is no hope for the
7.5 release, as Peter E is working on this particular item.

You may be confusing locale with encoding here. UTF-8 is an encoding not
a locale.

Well, yes. But locales are needed if we want to sort query results with
local signs ?

No dash against an item doesn't mean it won't be done for 7.5, just that
nobody apparently has yet. If you want to do it then go for it ;-)

I believe he native W32 libraries support locales except for one setting -
I forget which (possibly LC_MESSAGES?).

cheers
