I just completed an ebook to post at Amazon and tried to compile in 1.7.0.2. It shows a pop up that says compiling to ePub with green progress bar, then nothing. I double-checked path to kindlegen and it is correct. The book compiled as an ePub so I loaded that to kindle previewer to produce the book. Anyone else having this issue or is it something I am doing incorrectly?

No, this is a bug with 1.7.0.2; we're in the process of fixing it. Using Kindle Previewer to run it through kindlegen will produce the same result (it's exactly what Scrivener does during compile, creating an ePUB and then passing that to kindlegen), so that's the best workaround for the moment.
