I've just released version 0.2.4 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 to not fail during import if SSL is not available. * Changed project name comparisons to follow PEP 503. * Changed manifest and resources logic to work correctly under (upcoming) Python 3.6. * Updated Windows launchers with fixes to bugs related to argument-passing in shebang lines.
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!
