    I am pleased to announce a new release of bento, a packaging solution
for python which aims at reproducibility, extensibility and simplicity.

The main features of this 0.1.0 release are:

        - new commands register_pypi and upload_pypi to register a package
          pypi and upload tarballs to it.
        - add sphinx command to build a package documentation if it uses
        - add tweak_library/tweak_extension functions to build contexts to
          simplify simple builder customization (e.g. include_dirs, defines,
        - waf backend: cython tool automatically loaded if cython files are
          detected in sources
        - UseBackends feature: allows to declare which build backend to use
          when building C extensions in the bento.info file directly
        - add --use-distutils-flags configure option to force using flags
          distutils (disabled by default).
        - add --disable-autoconfigure build option to bypass configure for
          partial rebuilds. This is not reliable depending on how the
          environment is changed, so one should only use this during
        - add register_metadata API to register new metadata to be filled in
