This blog tries to list all the new features(major) available in Netweaver Portal 7.0.
I was searching SDN to find some blog/article outlining new features in Netweaver Portal 7.0 which doesnt exist in Netweaver Portal 6.0, couldnt find a comprehensive listing.
This delta feature list is based on the release notes (till NW2004S SPS 14 and NW 2004 SPS21) and you will find links to more information availabale in help.sap.com. The feature description is taken from release notes.
For me these are the major changes since Netweaver Portal 6.0, My next blog will list the new changes which I consider as minor.

It is possible to print portal content using the Print function of your browser.
To transport portal content packages (EPAs), there is now the option to export them using the SAP Change and Transport System (CTS).
User Management has been improved with many new features. In NW2004S user managemnet functionalities are available under Indentity Management.

The navigation zoom feature enables users to view isolated subject areas of the portal separately from the rest of the portal.
A new portal utility for system configuration enables the removal of system aliases that have become disassociated from any existing system. This enables reuse of the aliases for new systems.
