I've just released version 0.2.2 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:

* Fixed issue #81: Added support for detecting distributions installed by
  wheel versions >= 0.23 (which use metadata.json rather than pydist.json).
* Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.python.org/pypi
* Updated to use different formatting for description field for V1.1
* Corrected “classifier” to “classifiers” in the mapping for V1.0 metadata.
* Improved support for Jython when quoting executables in output scripts.
* Fixed issue #77: Made the internal URL used for extended metadata fetches
  configurable via a module attribute.
* Fixed issue #78: Improved entry point parsing to handle leading spaces in
  ini-format files.

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]
