ANN: distlib 0.2.5 released on PyPI

Python - python-announce-list mailing list
I've just released version 0.2.5 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:

* Changed regular expressions to be compatible with 3.6 as regards escape sequences.

* Closed some resource leaks related to XML-RPC proxies.

* Changed wheel processing to look for metadata in metadata.json as well as pydist.json.

* Updated requirement and marker parsing to be compatible with PEP 508.
* Made downloadability a factor in scoring URLs for preferences.

* Removed Python 2.6 from the support list.

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]
