Within 5.x and 6.x, you could create a module within the system in settings. Then using the developer mode, create the various screens. Where is this available in 7?

I cannot comment on the below, but how does one then create new modules? Is it via Python only?

You still can do the most of that activating technical features in the user. Go to Users -> Edit User and Activate Technical Features. Go to System Settings.

I never knew this existed! If I missed it in the docs, sorry if not please add it in :)

base _module _record has been dropped now, but there is a developer mode, click your name in the top right and go to about openerp and there is a link to activate developer mode. This makes the javascript a lot more readable and gives you handy links on objects to edit their view definitions etc.
