1) Nope.  qmon is still qmon.  It's been extended to accomodate the new
6.0 features, but it looks and works the same.

2) 6.0u6 is the version to use today.  6.0u7 is coming soon, though. 
(That's the snapshot2 you saw mentioned.)  6.0u7 will focus on
performance and scalability, so it may be worth upgrading to once it
comes out.

3) Gee. There are a lot of changes.  The big ones are:

a) cluster queues -- queues that span multiple hosts
b) new communication infrastructure -- no more commd
c) multi-threaded qmaster -- faster and more responsive
d) BDB -- spool to a database instead of just to files
e) DRMAA -- programmatic API for job handling in C or Java language

Did I miss anything?
