JDBC Driver moved to gborg.

P: n/a

The JDBC driver has been moved out of the main source tree to a gborg
project. This change will only affect new major releases. The 7.4 series
will continue to be maintained in the main tree. The impact on the
average user depends on how you got your .jar file.

If you downloaded a binary version from http://jdbc.postgresql.org/
then you will see no change. This website will remain the official place
for distributing the driver and its documentation.

If you use a version from an os vendor's packages then you will need to
make sure that the package provider continues to build the jdbc package.
This could be a problem if they were only building it in the past because
it came with the main source. Please encourage your packager to continue
providing postgresql jdbc packages. If you are a packager and wish to
distribute the driver, but don't have the time or resources to build it,
please contact one of the developers to provide you with the latest binary
packages which are portable to all operating systems supporting java.

If you built from source yourself you will simply need to download the
jdbc driver separately. In the past we have never provided source
packages because the build system was integrated with the main tree.
Now alongside the binary packages on http://jdbc.postgresql.org source
packages will be provided as well.

The pgsql-jdbc mailing list will continue to be the main list for
discussion of problems and development.

For developers the cvs repository is now available from here:
http://gborg.postgresql.org/project/...rojdisplay.php

A new mailing list for commit messages has been setup here:
http://gborg.postgresql.org/mailman/.../pgjdbc-commit
