Tons.  Look at the file "CHANGES" on or one of its mirrors.
Probably every source file has been touched.  A lot of things have been
added or synchronized with more current releases (not gcc, yet, but 2.7.0
should run "out of the box").

If you want a -current kernel, you'll need to copy all of /usr/src/sys.

Yes, with sup--if you have a direct Internet connection to a Unix box
(via slip, ppp, ethernet, or whatever).  It will update everything at
first, though...
