7.4.7 is very stable, and has had about two years shake down time,
counting beta testing.  8.0 is quite a bit newer, and to top it off,
includes a LOT of changes to the basic way it works.  

If you've got the time to test it, I'd do so, but I'm still running
production on 7.4.7, and probably will be for at least six more months.

Slony is a great tool for testing the newer versions while keeping your
production systems on 7.3.
