Pgtcl 1.5 has some bug fixes and many new features. There is also updated documentation and a test suite. It comes in source form, as well as pre compiled Windows DLLs. Pgtcl was tested on WindowsXP, Linux (SuSE 9.1), and FreeBSD. It was tested against PG databases running version 7.3, 7.4, and 8.0. Note however, that this release does not contain any new client features that were introduced with PG 8.0.
