[Update]: iOS 7.1 beta 4 changelog:
Here is the iOS 7.1 Beta 4 changelog:

- 32-bit apps running on a 64-bit device cannot attach to BTServer.
CFNetwork - Notes
A compatibility behavior has been added to address an issue where some web servers would send the wrong Content-Length value for “Content-Encoding: gzip” content. Previously,
