Release notes 

Changes for Packagers:
- Wicd now supports a -k option, which should be run by the init script
  when the daemon is stopped to release the DHCP lease but should not
  be run on a restart of the daemon.
- The ability has been added to split Wicd's components into multiple
  directories. Use --gtk, --cli, --curses, and --daemon to
  setup.py configure to specify the locations of the respective
  components.
- The preferred way to run the GTK UI is now to use wicd-gtk, not
  wicd-client. wicd-gtk is a new addition to 1.7 that will never
  run wicd-curses. wicd-client will automatically decide to run
  wicd-curses if there is no X session available.

Major Changes:
- Connection information is available by right clicking the tray icon
- Can set the hostname per network for all DHCP clients
- urwid 0.9.9 is now supported
- Added wicd-cli, a command line interface for use in scripts
- Global scripts are now passed parameters specifying the network

Minor Changes:
- Support for only displaying notifications using -o to wicd-client
- Reconnecting now works when measuring signal strength in dBm
- ESSIDs made of numbers now work properly
- All valid wpa_supplicant drivers are now displayed
- Wired network is now displayed while scanning wireless networks
- Added wicd-gtk, a command to always and only run the GTK UI
- Marked ioctl backend not supported
- Use dhcpcd-bin on Debian instead of dhcpcd script
