I am very happy to announce the first beta version of ownCloud Client
1.7.0 which was released today.

The most visible feature is the introduction of overlay icons in Windows
Explorer, Mac Finder and Nautilus on Linux which show the sync state of
the files. Also there is the first step done towards a feature which we
call "selective sync". It allows to exclude directory trees out of a
syncing folder. Once you configure a new sync folder you will be able to
exclude parts of the file tree.

Please make sure to use this release ONLY with test installation and not
with your production data.

As usual, please report bugs in http://github.com/owncloud/mirall/issues
and put the version into the header like [1.7.0 beta1].

Known problems:

- After installation, Explorer might need a restart through TaskManager
to make the icons visible.
- On WinXP, the overlay icons will not show up. We're on it.

- Uninstaller does not remove
  simply remove it manually if Finder goes wild, followed by 'killall
  Finder will restart automatically.
- Installer icon is not nice yet. Volunteers?
- The package misses the build number

- onwCloud Client has to be started before nautilus
- no dolphin support so far
