I've just released version 0.1.7 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.

    directory is unavailable.

    Fixed issue #40: Resources code manipulates paths differently for
    file system and zip resources.

    Native strings are used in path computations to avoid errors on
    Windows with Unicode paths.

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]
