Hi, Yongwei

We finally upgraded our database server to last PostgreSQL 8.2
available.

Since 8.2 does not include any major change (8.3 does indeed a lot of
them) we had no problem with this upgrade. And believe, our database was
really complex. About 600 tables with 300 stored procedures, wide use of
embedded functions from different packages (including tsearch2) and lot
of triggers and views. Not problems at all. 

Migrating to 8.3 or 8.4 is another history. So, my recommendation is to
migrate to 8.2.17
