Deficiencies in D7:

Still no way to permanently set multiple Behaviors and their properties.

D7 does not aupport random access in SWA files, even local SWA files. Macromedia justifies this by saying that most SWA files are streamed and therefore random access is impratical. Use QT movie audio tracks instead.

There is still no native ability to render common HTML tags. Text member support for HTML is very limited. You need an Xtra to "put a browser in Director" still.
