For NAT in version 8.3, here is the NAT order of operation for your reference:

With twice NAT, the order is as how it is entered in the configuration.

With network object NAT, it's static NAT takes precedence over dynamic NAT.

So from your description, I assume that you configure your policy NAT under twice NAT, so you are right. It is the same as the older version, ie: as you entered the NAT statements in the configuration.

Hope that helps.

To add to hajelins answer, it should work in 8.3 also.

The syntax will change automatically when you migrate/upgrade.

but translating an ip address based on the destination ip address is still do-able.

I hope it helps.
