I've updated postgresql and all its subpackages from 8.2.9-1 to 8.2.11-1.

What's new:

Migration to Version 8.2.11

A dump/restore is not required for those running 8.2.X. However, if you 
are upgrading from a version earlier than 8.2.7, see the release notes 
for 8.2.7.

Before you upgrade a postgresql package to a new new major or
minor version (7.4 => 8.0 => 8.1 => 8.2), be sure to dump all your data
before! With the new package you will not be able to access your old 
=> http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.2/static/app-pg-dumpall.html
Minor subrelease updates (e.g. 8.2.9 to 8.2.11) can safely access the
same database.

Be sure to read the README.cygwin and the postgresql documentation.
Upgrading within the 8.2 series requires only stopping the service,
upgrade and restarting the service.

Please ask questions here at <cygwin@cygwin.com>,
and only if you really have to, over at <pqsql-cygwin@postgresql.org>.
