I have had no end of trouble trying to get NM 0.7 working in Ubuntu, and
even Fedora's claim to ship with NM 0.7 is only partially true. Having
used it, it looks like they've just got 0.6.5 with some extra features that
don't really do a whole lot (unless of course you have VPN connections to
manage, then they've got something good for you). NM 0.6.5 OTOH has been
smooth, never failed to work properly. Except of course when I hit the
switch for my wireless card, but you can't blame NM for user stupidity :)
The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least
finished building it.
