    Noticed changes against
    * 50% increase in package size
    * added call button
    * online indicator for contacts on main page
    * “Who’s online” panel, similar to full version, luckily can be turned off (opposite button is probably missing ->bug?)
    * “Like” button on notifications – cannot be turned off and it’s pretty annoying
    * Delete conversation button
    I’ve returned back to v 6.
    P.S. I noticed that you guys are interested in posting the changes. :-)

      Thank you! I’ll stick with 7006 which is latest version before archive option was removed and before all the bloat
