New to Vanilla... questions on versions and Dashboard

I will be the Admin for a soon-to-be-launch forum based on open source Vanilla (2.2.1) and I have questions. My only prior admin experience is brief exposure to phpBB Admin Control Panel (ACP).

a) Pros/Cons of sticking with v2.2 vs upgrading to v2.3

b) Where did the changelogs move for v2.2 and v2.3? (

c) I don't see where I can backup/restore the forum database from Dashborard. Is there a plugin for that or do I have to do backups on the server side?

d) Where/how do I resync forum statistics (post counts, member count, etc.), or delete/rebuild the search index?
