EasyOS Dunfell version 2.7 released

Throughout 2020 and early 2021, the flagship releases of EasyOS were the "Buster series", built with DEB packages from Debian Buster 10.x. There were also releases of the "Dunfell series", compiled from source in a port of OpenEmbedded, that took a back-seat. Now, EasyOS Dunfell version 2.7 has the driver's seat and is the flagship release. Almost all of the packages are compiled in a port of OpenEmbedded, with the exception of a few large and difficult-to-cross-compile packages, such as LibreOffice and SeaMonkey -- these were compiled in the running EasyOS 2.7 pre-release. LibreOffice and SeaMonkey are the latest versions, 7.1.2.2 and 2.53.7. Network management has been enhanced with ModemManager, which NetworkManager Applet and ModemManage GUI are frontends for. NetworkManager Applet is an icon in the systray and ModemManager GUI is in the "Network" menu. The Linux kernel is 5.10.26. There have been some significant bug fixes since the previous release of EasyOS, including faster startup of a Linux distribution desktop in a container (without wallpaper corruption), Osmo stability, and the XorgWizard previously causing X not to start.
