Network traffic
Pressing on clock or date on status bar opens up Clock, Calendar
Tile customizations (LTE, screenshot, sync, heads up, expanded desktop, and more)
Status bar weather
Enlarge 1st row, show 4 tiles per row, show/hide brightness slider
Heads up notifications

Volume rocker customization:

Volume key cursor control

Other:
A large number of optimizations and memory leak fixes

Obligatory post 😁

Just FYI, this is a early bring up so I haven't added in the customizable led lights yet or ambient display stuff.
Franco kernel doesn't get added till we have an official 5.1 Franco kernel available.

Chroma wallpaper and boot animation specific to the n7 will be in the next build

Well thank you for the heads up, I would have been scratching my head on that.

N7 is blinded build (I don't own one but I have my frank testers who already tested it)

Ahh I see. Do you need a maintaner for it? This way it could be easier for testing. (unless zephiK choose only his people)

That's something I'm gonna talk to zephik about once each device specific bugs are worked out and then it is updating from his upstream. Currently I am doing the bring up on each device other then the n6.
