Hi, my name is Cesar.

I'd like to know what is the diference between 7.0 and 6.3 and why create a
newest version and after old version.

6.X is the last of versions meant primarilly for single processing
machines (with some after thought payed to multiprocessing).

7.X is the beginning of the versions specifically designed with
multiprocessing/cores in mind

Under the hood many things have been changed improved in 7.... the
offical recommendation is 6.3 is for people who can *NOT* upgrade to 7
for whatever reason and everyone else should use 7... note as far most
people can tell there is no "easy" way to upgrade to 7 if you have 6
installed so you should start with 7

When installing a test of 7.0 B4, I found that directories which I have traditionally used (/usr/local/libexec /usr/local/include /usr/local/lib /usr/local/sbin /usr/local/man/* etc) and /etc/make.conf are not visible in a default install. Is this because the B4 is missing them, or has there
been a serious change in directory & file structure?

They should be created (except maybe make.conf, which is empty by default).
