I've just released version 0.2.6 of distlib on PyPI [1]. For newcomers,
distlib is a library of packaging functionality which is intended to be
usable as the basis for third-party packaging tools.

The main changes in this release are as follows:

* Fixed #99: Updated to handle a case where sys.getfilesystemencoding()
  returns None.

* Fixed #97: Eliminated a crash in EggInfoDistribution.list_distinfo_files()
  which was caused by trying to open a non-existent file.

* Fixed #96: SimpleScrapingLocator no longer fails prematurely when scraping
  links due to invalid versions.

* Improved error messages issued when interpreting markers.

* Improved the shebangs written into installed scripts when the interpreter
  path is very long or contains spaces (to cater for a limitation in shebang
  line parsing on Linux).

* Updated launcher binaries.

A more detailed change log is available at [2].

Please try it out, and if you find any problems or have any suggestions for
improvements, please give some feedback using the issue tracker! [3]
