A.2. Release 7.3.1

Release date: 2002-12-18

This has a variety of fixes from 7.3.

A.2.1. Migration to version 7.3.1

A dump/restore is not required for those running 7.3. However, it should be noted that the main PostgreSQL interface library, libpq, has a new major version number for this release, which will require that client code using libpq be relinked.
