It is a little over one week since Quirky 7.0 was released. 7.0.1 is a bugfix release.

Please read the blog post for 7.0, for full announcement, release notes, and install instructions:

If you already have 7.0 installed, then an upgrade to 7.0.1 is available as a "Service Pack", a small PET package.

Summarizing the improvements:
1. Support Serbian keyboard and locale.
2. More Broadcom b43 firmware.
3. Fix for locale changes, fixdesk script.

5. Flsynclient was broken.
6. Roaring Penguin PPPOE, some executables were missing.
7. Small improvement to live-CD install to frugal.
