This release is around 60 ELO stronger than Stockfish 6 in self play.
SMP algorithm has been changed from YBW to Lazy SMP.
Gary Linscott is now officially listed as a co-author.

The official binaries will be made available from http://stockfishchess.org/ shortly.

Meanwhile feel free to use binaries from http://abrok.eu/stockfish.

If you have Windows x64 Hashwell system, the following binaries built by Kiran Panditrao perform around 5% better compared to abrok's builds:

As a side note: Stockfish 7 beta2 is functionally fully identical to Stockfish 7.

Sorry, I can't understand your question. To download Stockfish 7, just go to http://abrok.eu/stockfish/ and download the latest version.

The binaries will likely also be available from the official website in a few hours...
What I meant was that I was following the Stockfish team's discussion about the final binaries, and I was wondering whose binary did they choose for the "modern" version, aka POPCNT.
The http://stockfishchess.org/ is now updated with SF7. POPCNT version seems same as Abrok.
The official compiles won't run under ChessGUI, yet the two beta versions did.
Oddly enough, the Stockfish 7 compiles from the Abrok site work fine.
Then please use compiles from abrok.eu for now. We'll investigate...

Seems that abrok.eu Stockfish versions were recompiled. We've updated binaries in stockfishchess.org accordingly.
