The PostgreSQL Project today released minor versions updating all active 
branches of the PostgreSQL object-relational database system, including 
versions 8.3.7, 8.2.13, 8.1.17, 8.0.21 and 7.4.25.  This release fixes a 
  denial of service issue with encoding conversion, and all users should 
update their installations at the next reasonable opportunity.

There are also 12 minor fixes contained in these update releases, 
including fixes for xpath() functions in version 8.3. See the release 
notes for full details.

As with other minor releases, users are not required to dump and reload 
their database in order to apply this update release; you may simply 
shut down PostgreSQL and update its binaries. Users skipping more than 
one update may need to check the release notes for extra, post-update 
steps.

Windows binaries are being released, as we no longer support 8.0 and 8.1 
on Windows.
