As usual, don't start any major campaigns for a week or two until any obvious problems are found and fixed.
Gonna wait for 7.01 through, With all the new stuff things have to be bugged somewhere.

I've been itching to start a campaign and try out 7.0. But I have to ask those who've tried it: Is 7.0 considerably buggier than 6.43? Would you consider it playable? Or would you recommend waiting for a patch?

In particular, I noticed that the Official v7.00 Bugs Reporting Thread is only 12 days old and already it's 6 pages long. (Though, to be fair, Steve did ask to repost old bugs there that haven't been resolved.)

And there are a few reported issues that concern me. One reported a database size of over 172 MB after deleting the example game and all but one of the player races. (And an inability to use the compact database command?) Another reported their database swelling to over 2GB in size.

As usual I forgot to reset window positions when creating a new patch :)

I'll sort it out for v7.01
...Work is a little mad at the moment so I will get to it in the next few days. Sounds like you should avoid using auto-detect for the moment and I suggest any major campaigns wait for v7.1.

Q: Will the next patch be labeled 7.01 or 7.1 ?

What does it matter? That said, the last two revisions after a major version have been x.10.

x.01 usually designates just an .exe change.

x.1 usually designates a database change.

It will be 7.1. Some of the bug fixes will need a DB change. I hope to work on it over the weekend.
