I've released version 0.23.0 of wheel, after verifying that its test
pass against Python 2.6, 2.7, PyPy, Python 3.3 and Python 3.4. Most of
the improvements in this release are from contributors. Thank you!

The most surprising feature to anyone who relies on wheel's own
installer is that bdist_wheel now relies on post-install setuptools
scripts wrapper generation - which is automatically provided by recent
wheel-supporting versions of pip, or manually by the wheel
install-scripts [distribution [distribution ...]] command. This change
also removes the --skip-scripts parameter from bdist_wheel.
