I don't remember declaring 2.9.4 was a major change, but, that's okay, be that as it may, we do have some cool things in the works, but unfortunately that's all I can say about it right now.

No.  I'll post the config file to our site:
today.  I don't think there are any changes in it.

Yes, the unified2 method of logging is going anywhere.

It all depends on how you installed it.  I'd suggest uninstalling the old version and then installing the new version (instead of trying to install over the old).  But if you are subscribed to the Snort-users list, that's the best place to ask questions about upgrading and installation.
