[Gnumed-devel] GNUmed 0.9 and PG 8.4 on Windows

Looks like GNUmed 0.9 will require PostgreSQL 8.4. Preliminary tests indicate 
that the default values including a silent installation work well with regards 
to letting GNUmed bootstrap a database. This pretty much means the 0.9 Windows 
installer can be shipped with PG 8.4. 

There is no explicit support for Windows users switching from GNUmed on PG 8.3 
(current default) to PG 8.4 (default from 0.9). However the usual procedure 
stays unchanged. 

1.) Backup your databases and roles in a running PG 8.3 or start PG 8.3 on 
another port (e.g. 5433)
2.) Let the GNUmed-server package install PG 8.4 and the GNUmed update files 
for you
3.) Make sure it is started on port 5432 (default)
4.) Restore the databases and roles
5.) Upgrade your databases via the GNUmed menu item

If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
