However, it might make sense to upgrade to a more
recent version at the same
time; either 8.4 or 9.0. This will require a dump and reload of all databases,
so it will take a while to complete. As far as I know, there should be no (or
very few) changes required to tools using the database.
There are known performance
issues with the diff update process on 8.4
. There has been some talk  about 9.0 but no real experience with it.
I don't have a strong opinion either way, although
I think it makes sense to
upgrade regularly rather than stay on the same version forever. Before I make
a decision, it would be nice to know what people actually using the database
I'd like to give 9.0 a try but we'd need a way run it in parallel to
(maybe on another server) to do some benchmarking between them before we
make a decision for the one or the other.
