I am afraid I can't remember all the changes I made myself.  They 
include more complete
quoting for column names so that oddly named columns didn't screw stuff 
up, and support
for treating the direct request of a general SQL query as a feature 
layer (via the
-sql commandline switch to ogrinfo or ogr2ogr).  

Bugs can be submitted in via the GDAL bugzilla entering link:
