I really liked that fluxbox style as well.
I'll try describing them here, although using man pages or their help will get you more details and options.
Using the default order from top to bottom:
wmnet: shows your network speeds for uploading and downloading
wmcpuload: shows the % load of the cpu being used, will turn on the backlight if it is being stressed (at 100%)
asmem: shows your memory usage.
iirc, the top part (MEM) is for physical internal RAM; the maximum amount on the right; the 2 coloured bars shows what memory is used, cached; and what's free as a total, and as a %. Then the bottom half is the same but for your total swap, should you have it.
mount.app: shows which available devices are already mounted (green), and one that you can mount, and those that are busy (yellow i think). Scroll by using the arrow keys, mount/unmount by clicking the button on the left of it.
wmix: controls your volume for different channels. The scrolling text tells you which channel it's on (you can switch them with the arrows below); mute (i think); if it's on stereo/mono; how the output is balanced Left to Right; and the knob is for controlling your volume and the % is shown above (can be controlled by leftclick+drag or the scroll on a mouse) - moves clockwise for higher values.
fluxter: shows your workspaces in fluxbox and the windows currently in them. You can move windows around (left click) and switch workspaces (middle click) with it.
Just note that this is just what I remember, as some of the dockapps I still regularly use are different.
I didn't find much difference for boot with 3.x, although the unionfs layer is by default initialized on boot (boot with "legacy" to avoid this) - .unc extensions are preferred over .dsl's (lower memory usage). Upgrading is up to you - you can check the release notes for the many changes. I'd suggest for you to try it, and see for yourself the differences first hand.
