I have noticed 2 bugs with 7.0.

1. Minor. After rebooting after the first setup and configuration the desktop is blank with no shortcuts that are normally there.

2. MAJOR. The resolv.conf file is not being written to properly and that results in no external DNS resolution. Even after forwarders are set in the DNS module.
The only way to fix this is to manually enter a nameserver entry in the resolv.conf file, which gets re-written on every reboot or module save.

I am assuming this is one of the reasons why the community product page has been rolled back to 6.2?
