Nothing has changed from the 0.7b4 pre-release. This is the version that will be uploaded to PyPI after we work out the technique to deploy to PyPI without interfering with the setuptools 0.6 releases.
congratulations on the release!
One thing I'd like to say though is that I released a piece of software that has setuptools pinned to 0.6c12dev-r88846 in buildout and it's not possible to install it now.
Coincidentally, the latest release of that software of mine was just several hours before setuptools 0.7 was out so all my tests went fine but in a moment people began to hit upon a wall. Tough luck, well, I would've spotted it right away.
There's nothing special about 0.6c12dev-r88846 - it's simply one of ~70 dependencies I pinned down so I could have repeatable builds with buildout.
In the future, I'll need to have my own package index, that's for sure.
But for now, given that you said you'd like not to interfere with previous releases, could you please upload 0.6c12dev-r88846 back to http://peak.telecommunity.com/snapshots/ or other places where it can be usually found?
