I just did a quick test myself, and upgraded the project in which we maintain the deeplink module. In this module in 7.1 all test cases worked without any issues.
In Mx 7 we still have the need for the deeplink module, as Ronald says our recommendation is to use the new page url feature to navigate to a specific page, but in order to navigate directly to a dataview (an execute a microflow) you will still need the deeplink module.
I'm assuming you are familiar with the deeplink module, a fairly new feature that was introduced is a constant for the request handler. 'Deeplink.RequestHandlerName'. This allows you to use a different url than the defeault /link/ such as mendixcloud.com/myaction/deeplinkname
Be aware if you want to use 'myaction' don't add any slashes only add the text to the constant. If you would add '/myaction/' into the constant the url would only work if you'd go to: mendixcloud.com//myaction//deeplinkname (note the double slashes).
The deeplink is to my knowledge not compatible with MX7. You should use the URL option for a page instead. It seems that Mendix is of the opinion that the deeplink is no longer necesarry in Mx7. I have read this somewhere but can not recall where exactly I got this information.
Maybe somebody from Mendix could chime in here to give the exact details.
