  Description     : A new JDBC driver for PostgreSQL aimed at
supporting the advanced features of JDBC and Postgres

This driver implements new features not supported by the original
Postres driver. The featuers of the driver include:

* JDBC 4.1 target (with goal of complete conformance)
* UDT support through standard SQLData, SQLInput & SQLOutput
* Code Generator for UDTs (
* Support for JDBC custom type mappings
* Pluggable custom type serialization
* Compact binary format with text format fallback
* Database, ResultSet and Parameter meta data
* Transactions / Savepoints
* Blobs
* Updatable ResultSets
* Callable Statements
* Asynchronous Notifications
* SSL Authentication and Encrpytion
* DataSource / XADataSource

In the context of JabRef we use this driver because of the
asynchronous notifications. They are not supported by the original
driver. In case a new version of JabRef should be packaged for Debian,
this package has to be available.
