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."

There are some really odd blind spots in 7. Another peculiarity for me is that it appears to be a step backwards from RC3. I have the Evo and I had to do a workaround for GPS. Strange theme-ing quirks abound (notification icons will turn white instead of the correct blue, etc...) I have never used bluetooth on any phone, so I can't say if it affects mine though.

I can say though that this is the fasted ROM I have used yet though. The feature set is very impressive. I definitely think that another RC though.

Ya, based on the bug reports, they really need another RC or three or four before declaring a final. My post was really addressing core phone features (I consider those important for a device which first and foremost purports to be a phone). When you expand beyond that, things like AGPS and GPS failing to work and even failing to work reliably when it does work are more serious issues for a generalized "smart device." Just imagine how many applications fail to work when location services can't even be trusted.

I completely agree about its speed. Speed and number of features are really profound but its really hard to enjoy those attributes which CM creates so many breakages and incomplete features. And as you point out, the number of other, noteworhty issues, are fairly numerous.
