I have loooked over the headers (mainly compared to .6).

openssl.h: typedef struct SSL_METHOD has changed (size and members).

Isn't this a problem? (ABI break)

There is also couple of API changes that are not correctly documented,
afaict this is just a minor documentation problem, none of the functions
were part of a stable release.

NEWS says gnutls_transport_set_push_function2: ADDED
However the function was present in .6 and removed in .7.

gnutls_openpgp_privkey_decrypt_data was present in .6 openpgp.h and is
missing now.

gnutls_x509_privkey_sign_data2 was removed but is not listed in NEWS.

gnutls_pkcs11_privkey_sign_hash is listed twice as REMOVED in NEWS.
