I've just released version 0.1.5 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:

    Used dummy_threading when threading isn’t available.

    Used uncompressed Windows executable launchers, because the
    compressed ones cause false positive warnings with some
    anti-virus products.

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]
