Can anyone provide some feedback on their experience running SS7.0a? It seems that a bug fix (4638) (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=4638) that I have been waiting on exists, but only in SS7. Given the warnings that precede the download of this alpha version, I am somewhat reluctant to jump in.

My experience has been that it's pretty unstable. I've been running the web interface for months, just playing with it, and never noticed anything other than unfinished features. But last week when I actually connected a Squeezebox 2 and played some music, the wheels came off. The SB2 had dropouts (that I never have otherwise) and would then get into a state where it would play for a minute or two and then reboot.

I've been using it with my Nokia N800, the web interface and through the transporter and has been completely stable for me.
In fact it fixes all the problems I had with 6.5.x so it it actuall better and just as stable. I am also installing the latest version each day and it has kept all my prefeerences and settings everytime.

I run trunk all the time (that's 7.0 to you). I have occasionally had
problems but, on the whole, it's pretty stable.

Thanks for the insight. May try it on a second machine to hedge my bet.
