Bastards - you beat me to it!
If the MacCentral screenshots are to be believed, THE BRUSH PALETTE IS BACK! wOOT! (first time I've ever said that).
Also, sounds like theres a new painting engine under the hood as well as some enhancements to the auto-levels type color correction tools (about time). 7.0 also sounds much more customizable in terms of being able to define tools with specific settings as presets that you can return to again and again. Not only that but you can set interface presets too so if you have two different type of workflows (web and print let's say) and need a totally different combination of palettes for each, the program will remember them and restore the appropriate combination when you ask it to.
Still not sure I get the point of the File Browser thing but I suppose it will be useful for managing digital camera archives and the like. Either way, I'm PSYCHED. Seems there is more new stuff than I suspected.
And add to all this, the wonderful little change that we can now change Layer, Channel and Path names simply by clicking on the item that needs to be changed (within its palette). NICE.
Oh and improve save-for-web features as always. I'm ready to kiss Classic's venerable (but old) ass goodbye. I'm guessing this puppy will ship before the end of March. Keep your fingers crossed!
