I've just released version 0.2.7 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.

The main changes in this release are as follows:

* Addressed #102: InstalledDistributions now have a modules attribute which is a list
  of top-level modules as read from top_level.txt, if that is in the distribution info.

* Fixed #103: Now https downloads are preferred to those over http. Thanks to
  Saulius Žemaitaitis for the patch.

* Fixed #104: Updated launcher binaries to properly handle interpreter paths with spaces.
  Thanks to Atsushi Odagiri for the diagnosis and fix.

* Fixed #105: cache_from_source is now imported from importlib.util where available.

* Added support for PEP 566 / Metadata 2.1.

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]
