PostgresDAC 2.5.0 released

PostgresDAC 2.5.0 released

Version 2.5.0 (December 12, 2008)

Important changes: Since designtime code is separated from runtime one, for those who had previously installed PostgrtesDAC there might be need to do the following:
- uninstall PostgresDAC from IDE
- manually remove PostgresDACX.bpl library from $(DELPHI)\Projects\Bpl or wherever it was manually installed
If you install PostgresDAC from sources you need build PostgresDACX.dpk package first, and then install designtime dclPostgresDAC.dpk package.

Important changes: TPSQLMonitor.OnSQL event definition has been changed!
Pay attention if you will test PostgresDAC with old projects.

Important changes: Client libraries built with MinGW compiler. The stock ones that are shipped with the win32 version of PostgreSQL have a ton of extra dependencies that are not needed for most client applications, so we built our own versions of the libs including OpenSSL. This eliminated the MS CRT, Kerberos, GSS and ZLIB dependencies reducing the size of the required dependencies.
