On behalf of the PYPA, I'm excited to announce that Setuptools 0.7 is now
official and complete.


Released to PyPI, Setuptools 0.7.2 is now available for all to see by
default (https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools/). Users of Setuptools 0.6
may upgrade by simply running `easy_install -U setuptools`.


Additionally, I released Distribute 0.7 to PyPI. This means that users who
have Distribute 0.6.x can upgrade to setuptools 0.7 by simply invoking
`easy_install -U distribute` (or `easy_install "distribute>=0.7"`). Windows
users should use `easy_install-script -U distribute` (to avoid "file in use"
errors on easy_install.exe).


The documentation for Setuptools 0.7.2 has been uploaded to
https://pythonhosted.org/setuptools and includes the notes about the merge
in addition to the official documentation.


Please report any issues at the project page
