I confess to not reading all the release notes.  My interest in
the CentOS beta came from the fact that a number of things which
were broken going from FC4 to FC6 which annoyed me.  I discovered
that FC7T2 maintains the broken state (there are open bugzillas)
and CentOS 5 inherits them.

In particular.  The gnome applets which show CPU/disk/network/etc. 
utilization have a hover popup which shows the numeric value.  Prior
to FC6, it changed once a second if you hovered the cursor.  It no
longer updates.

Updates to gnome startup cause multiple occurances of some applications
to be ignored. http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=341286
