The issue related to the "no snort.signature table" has been fixed.
These are the diffs which will patch the version 0.9.6b8 code.
Alternatively, you could download version 0.9.6b9 which also
includes this fix.

The "Traffic Profile by Protocol" graph is not generated by PHPlot.  
The missing graph is a result of the earlier error (no signature 
table).  PHPlot is used for the"Graphing alert data" functionality; 
 NOTE: it is currently highly experimental

The short answer is yes.  A number of schema changes were 
introduces in Snort 1.8 which will make ACID faster.  However,
all functionality should still exist even if you continue to use
Snort 1.7.
