I have checked on this now. There is no restriction or privacy rules 
about posting the 2.7.x URLs, and RR will try to get all the 2.7 
versions uploaded to the FTP site soon. The person who does this is on 
vacation right now (or as they say across the pond, "on holiday") so it 
may be a week or two before it happens. In the mean time, the 2.7.x 
releases are freely available to anyone if you know the formula for 
constructing the correct URL.

To do that, go to the downloads page on the web site. Navigate to the 
download page of the edition you want and copy the link to the posted 
edition (Media, Studio, or Enterprise.) Paste that into the location bar 
of your browser. Then all you need to do is change the version number in 
the link to the version you want to retrieve.

For example, the current Studio link to the full download is:
 
<http://developer.runrev.com/components/revolution/studio/2.7.4-gm-1/RevStd274Full.dmg>

To get version 2.7.1, for example, just change all instances of 2.7.4 to 
2.7.1, like this:

<http://developer.runrev.com/components/revolution/studio/2.7.1-gm-1/RevStd2711Full.dmg>

Note that the version change you need to make exists in two places, both 
in the directory and the actual file name.
