The changelog entries as found at
http://pypi.python.org/pypi/distribute#changes should be a good start.

The Distribute 0.6 series is essentially setuptools with more bugs fixed.

One process related advantage distribute has over setuptools is, that
you can actually contribute patches and code to the project and get
those released after a reasonable time. We welcome contributors to the
project :-)
