Mark, is there a doc that list what is new in OS7? looking at the javadoc it is hard to tell what is new in OS7.
There is a "New in this release" document, which can be found here: http://docs.blackberry.com/en/developers/deliverab

Do you have a proxy configured in your browser? This page shows how to configure a proxy in Eclipse: http://www.roseindia.net/eclipse/eclipse-update-pr

OS7 will not be available for current in market devices. From a developer standpoint your code made in 4.5 4.6 4.7 5.0 6.0 SDK's will work nicely in 7. So no 7 for a 9780 or 9800.
Most of the new features in the 7.0 SDK are dependent on the new hardware and therefore make no sense to deploy on the current 6.0 devices.
(Nfc, compass, opengl, etc.)
I understand its an abrupt change, but unfortunatly progress sometimes comes at a cost and the current jump to the new much better hardware requires to much changes to the OS that have no relevance to the former hardware platforms.
I hope this answers your question.
Completely agree, no problem in changes, I hope that this new phones will help blackberry to better compete in the smartphones war.
I develop on all platforms but I don't like apple policy, google is indifferent since I make too few money on it to worth liking it, come on RIM!
