CM7 is based on the 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) release of Android from Google. We’ve added most of the great features from CM6 you know and love, and many new ones including support for several tablets. We are currently providing support for 30 devices! I continue to be amazed with this community and the dedication of everyone involved."

Sadly, final - beta

Take a look at the bug reports. Their final release reads more like a first beta release. Basic phone features don't even work properly. Bluetooth has issues.

If a phone update can't even perform its core functionality, its in no way ready for production use. Its a beta release at best.

When cyanogen first came on the scene, they provided a very strong and stable release. Sadly, CM is frequently the source of many a headache for Android application developers.

I love CM's features but I sincerely wish they would at least fix core feature bugs and resolve issues which squarely place this as a beta release before they announce it as a production ready release.

Sadly, the CM community has decided features are more important than stability and feature completeness. I sincerely hope CM gets back to its roots.
