On Unix, I would say just install the new version on top of the old
one. But I don't use Windows so I can't give advice there.

Especially for a minor version increase like 1.4.0->1.4.3, a dump/
load cycle is not necessary, nor would performing one be of advantage
to you. Now, if your repository was actually created with Subversion
1.3.x or earlier, then dumping and loading into 1.4 should give you a
bit of a performance improvement.
