Looking through the PROJ.4 log for pj_transform() I don't see any recent
changes necessary for general use.  Mostly fixes for buggy input, support
for geocentric cses, and prime meridian support and some datum shift fixes.

Are you specially referring to 7 parameter datum shift issues?  If so, you
would need something current with at least pj_transform.c 1.5 (late 2002)
which would be PROJ 4.4.6 or later.
