...using the dump tools from the *new* version. With several cores, you 
might want to consider using the binary dump options in pg_dump if you 
want to use the new parallel restore feature in pg_restore with a 
possible dramatic increase in restore speed (benchmarks I've seen 
suggest that with 8 cores you may even see an almost 8x restore speedup 
so it's worth the effort). The manual suggests that setting --jobs to 
the number of cores on the server is a good first approximation. See the 
-Fc options on pg_dump and the --jobs option in pg_restore for details.

Cheers,
Steve
