There have been lots of changes in the transition from 6.6 to 7.0 [1].
In your local configuration directory in /home/rena/.textadept/ are
likely some deprecated function calls causing the errors. You could
start by renaming your .textadept, then Textadept will create a clean
new one.

Hope this helps,
