I don't think it's my place to upload anything...so no.
The apps may be free, but I don't know that they're 'freeware'.
However, here's the link to the Kobo Books App page where you can
DL the setup file. I don't know if that will net you v1.7 or if it's still v1.6
but that's as far as I'll go. http://www.kobobooks.com/desktop
I was more trying to tell people that it's coming, and if you have one of the new Kobo readers then you can access it right now. I'm sure an announcement is forthcoming.
