I've just released version 0.2.0 of distlib on PyPI . 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:
Updated match_hostname to use the latest Python implementation.
Updates to better support PEP 426 / PEP 440.
You can now provide interpreter arguments in shebang lines written by distlib.
Removed reference to __PYVENV_LAUNCHER__ (relevant to OS X only).
A more detailed change log is available at .
Please try it out, and if you find any problems or have any suggestions for improvements, please give some feedback using the issue tracker!
