This release includes:
Better error trapping during installation and upgrade for various incompatible systems, based on error reports from folks newly trying out Drupal 7 on various environments. We think we've caught all the ones we have so far, but please keep the reports coming!
Better support for exportables in the form of a new Form API type “machine_name” and format IDs stored as strings rather than integers.
Links can now participate in the D7 AJAX framework, which was previously limited to forms.
Raised minimum version of PHP to PHP 5.2.4, to facilitate stream wrapper security.
Numerous tweaks to basic navigation in the default profile, to prevent information overload.
Fixed a regression in Schema API that prevented modules such as Date from adding to the column types supported by core.
Profile module no longer shows up on the module listing on new sites, in favour of fieldable user entities.
Fixing of numerous Bartik and Seven theme style & RTL bugs. There are still lots more, so please help get Drupal 7's new look and feel as polished as possible!
