When did you last play? -- It's changed a lot from 0.34.11 (which was the most recent version until 2014) and a fair amount from 0.40.24 (which was the most recent version until the end of last year)
LNP still exists, and is updated, but I don't think it works with 64-bit DF yet. Dwarf Therapist (and probably DFHack) only work with 32-bit.
Personally, I don't use LNP, so I'm not familiar with it. (I sometimes use DT though once my fort hits ~100 dwarves).
Some things to know: military isn't as cruical as it used to be. Invasions are less frequent, as they are actual historical figures now -- not generated on site. World gen continues as your fort goes on, so battles are fought and the like while you are fortressing. You will get dwarves from previous forts you made as immigrants.
EDIT: Here's the most recent LNP thread on the bay12games forums.
. It looks like it's using 0.43.03, so not quite up to date (most recent is 0.43.06 -- the 64-bit update). I'd still take a look at it if I were you. 0.43.03 is very stable and works well. There are only minor differences between it and the most recent version (mostly, a lack of 64-bit support).
