Whoa there. I apologize but I did read the first post but didn't see it as it's quite hidden.
To be fair, it is hidden nearly right at the very bottom of the page. Chances are some people won't see it.
Anyway, the answer is no, there won't be a 1.7.10 version. It will probably take far too long to make to be worth it, as many people have already moved on from 1.7.10, and even more would have moved on by the time it was finished.
Thank you very much
