I think 7.0 is very near, but not because of the status of 6.3. When a
release is in the RC stage, it is very near full release unless
something very significant is found by user testing. There are enough
potential problems being posted that I wouldn't be surprised to see
another release candidate, but perhaps all of those will turn out to
be minor issues and the next thing that will happen is the full
I have run 7.0 BETAs on several systems and encountered no problems
(except that amd64 won't boot on our stupid HP systems with brain dead
BIOSes, but i386 works fine on them, KDE and all). I have already put
7.0 on a couple of production DNS servers (well, they are intended for
production, but are still in testing). The issues being reported don't
seem to be a problem for that use, and I'd rather set up a new server
with a new major release than one that is near end of life.
