CHANGES
=======

---
1.4
---

* Issue #27: ``easy_install`` will now use credentials from .pypirc if
  present for connecting to the package index.
* Pull Request #21: Omit unwanted newlines in ``package_index._encode_auth``
  when the username/password pair length indicates wrapping.

-----
1.3.2
-----

* Issue #99: Fix filename encoding issues in SVN support.

-----
1.3.1
-----

* Remove exuberant warning in SVN support when SVN is not used.

---
1.3
---

* Address security vulnerability in SSL match_hostname check as reported in
  Python #17997.
* Prefer `backports.ssl_match_hostname
  <https://pypi.python.org/pypi/backports.ssl_match_hostname>`_ for backport
  implementation if present.
* Correct NameError in ``ssl_support`` module (``socket.error``).

---
1.2
---

* Issue #26: Add support for SVN 1.7. Special thanks to Philip Thiem for the
  contribution.
* Issue #93: Wheels are now distributed with every release. Note that as
  reported in Issue #108, as of Pip 1.4, scripts aren't installed properly
  from wheels. Therefore, if using Pip to install setuptools from a wheel,
  the ``easy_install`` command will not be available.
* Setuptools "natural" launcher support, introduced in 1.0, is now officially
  supported.

-----
1.1.7
-----

* Fixed behavior of NameError handling in 'script template (dev).py' (script
  launcher for 'develop' installs).
* ``ez_setup.py`` now ensures partial downloads are cleaned up following
  a failed download.
* Distribute #363 and Issue #55: Skip an sdist test that fails on locales
  other than UTF-8.

-----
1.1.6
-----

* Distribute #349: ``sandbox.execfile`` now opens the target file in binary
  mode, thus honoring a BOM in the file when compiled.

-----
1.1.5
-----

* Issue #69: Second attempt at fix (logic was reversed).

-----
1.1.4
-----

* Issue #77: Fix error in upload command (Python 2.4).

-----
1.1.3
-----

* Fix NameError in previous patch.

-----
1.1.2
-----

* Issue #69: Correct issue where 404 errors are returned for URLs with
  fragments in them (such as #egg=).

-----
1.1.1
-----

* Issue #75: Add ``--insecure`` option to ez_setup.py to accommodate
  environments where a trusted SSL connection cannot be validated.
* Issue #76: Fix AttributeError in upload command with Python 2.4.

---
1.1
---

* Issue #71 (Distribute #333): EasyInstall now puts less emphasis on the
  condition when a host is blocked via ``--allow-hosts``.
* Issue #72: Restored Python 2.4 compatibility in ``ez_setup.py``.

---
1.0
---

* Issue #60: On Windows, Setuptools supports deferring to another launcher,
  such as Vinay Sajip's `pylauncher <https://bitbucket.org/pypa/pylauncher>`_
  (included with Python 3.3) to launch console and GUI scripts and not install
  its own launcher executables. This experimental functionality is currently
  only enabled if  the ``SETUPTOOLS_LAUNCHER`` environment variable is set to
  "natural". In the future, this behavior may become default, but only after
  it has matured and seen substantial adoption. The ``SETUPTOOLS_LAUNCHER``
  also accepts "executable" to force the default behavior of creating launcher
  executables.
* Issue #63: Bootstrap script (ez_setup.py) now prefers Powershell, curl, or
  wget for retrieving the Setuptools tarball for improved security of the
  install. The script will still fall back to a simple ``urlopen`` on
  platforms that do not have these tools.
* Issue #65: Deprecated the ``Features`` functionality.
* Issue #52: In ``VerifyingHTTPSConn``, handle a tunnelled (proxied)
  connection.

Backward-Incompatible Changes
=============================

This release includes a couple of backward-incompatible changes, but most if
not all users will find 1.0 a drop-in replacement for 0.9.

* Issue #50: Normalized API of environment marker support. Specifically,
  removed line number and filename from SyntaxErrors when returned from
  `pkg_resources.invalid_marker`. Any clients depending on the specific
  string representation of exceptions returned by that function may need to
  be updated to account for this change.
* Issue #50: SyntaxErrors generated by `pkg_resources.invalid_marker` are
  normalized for cross-implementation consistency.
* Removed ``--ignore-conflicts-at-my-risk`` and ``--delete-conflicting``
  options to easy_install. These options have been deprecated since 0.6a11.

-----
0.9.8
-----

* Issue #53: Fix NameErrors in `_vcs_split_rev_from_url`.

-----
0.9.7
-----

* Issue #49: Correct AttributeError on PyPy where a hashlib.HASH object does
  not have a `.name` attribute.
* Issue #34: Documentation now refers to bootstrap script in code repository
  referenced by bookmark.
* Add underscore-separated keys to environment markers (markerlib).

-----
0.9.6
-----

* Issue #44: Test failure on Python 2.4 when MD5 hash doesn't have a `.name`
  attribute.

-----
0.9.5
-----

* Python #17980: Fix security vulnerability in SSL certificate validation.

-----
0.9.4
-----

* Issue #43: Fix issue (introduced in 0.9.1) with version resolution when
  upgrading over other releases of Setuptools.

-----
0.9.3
-----

* Issue #42: Fix new ``AttributeError`` introduced in last fix.

-----
0.9.2
-----

* Issue #42: Fix regression where blank checksums would trigger an
  ``AttributeError``.

-----
0.9.1
-----

* Distribute #386: Allow other positional and keyword arguments to os.open.
* Corrected dependency on certifi mis-referenced in 0.9.

---
0.9
---

* `package_index` now validates hashes other than MD5 in download links.

---
0.8
---

* Code base now runs on Python 2.4 - Python 3.3 without Python 2to3
  conversion.

-----
0.7.8
-----

* Distribute #375: Yet another fix for yet another regression.

-----
0.7.7
-----

* Distribute #375: Repair AttributeError created in last release (redo).
* Issue #30: Added test for get_cache_path.

-----
0.7.6
-----

* Distribute #375: Repair AttributeError created in last release.

-----
0.7.5
-----

* Issue #21: Restore Python 2.4 compatibility in ``test_easy_install``.
* Distribute #375: Merged additional warning from Distribute 0.6.46.
* Now honor the environment variable
  ``SETUPTOOLS_DISABLE_VERSIONED_EASY_INSTALL_SCRIPT`` in addition to the now
  deprecated ``DISTRIBUTE_DISABLE_VERSIONED_EASY_INSTALL_SCRIPT``.

-----
0.7.4
-----

* Issue #20: Fix comparison of parsed SVN version on Python 3.

-----
0.7.3
-----

* Issue #1: Disable installation of Windows-specific files on non-Windows systems.
* Use new sysconfig module with Python 2.7 or >=3.2.

-----
0.7.2
-----

* Issue #14: Use markerlib when the `parser` module is not available.
* Issue #10: ``ez_setup.py`` now uses HTTPS to download setuptools from PyPI.

-----
0.7.1
-----

* Fix NameError (Issue #3) again - broken in bad merge.

---
0.7
---

* Merged Setuptools and Distribute. See docs/merge.txt for details.

Added several features that were slated for setuptools 0.6c12:

* Index URL now defaults to HTTPS.
* Added experimental environment marker support. Now clients may designate a
  PEP-426 environment marker for "extra" dependencies. Setuptools uses this
  feature in ``setup.py`` for optional SSL and certificate validation support
  on older platforms. Based on Distutils-SIG discussions, the syntax is
  somewhat tentative. There should probably be a PEP with a firmer spec before
  the feature should be considered suitable for use.
* Added support for SSL certificate validation when installing packages from
  an HTTPS service.

-----
0.7b4
-----

* Issue #3: Fixed NameError in SSL support.

------
0.6.49
------

* Move warning check in ``get_cache_path`` to follow the directory creation
  to avoid errors when the cache path does not yet exist. Fixes the error
  reported in Distribute #375.

------
0.6.48
------

* Correct AttributeError in ``ResourceManager.get_cache_path`` introduced in
  0.6.46 (redo).

------
0.6.47
------

* Correct AttributeError in ``ResourceManager.get_cache_path`` introduced in
  0.6.46.

------
0.6.46
------

* Distribute #375: Issue a warning if the PYTHON_EGG_CACHE or otherwise
  customized egg cache location specifies a directory that's group- or
  world-writable.

------
0.6.45
------

* Distribute #379: ``distribute_setup.py`` now traps VersionConflict as well,
  restoring ability to upgrade from an older setuptools version.

------
0.6.44
------

* ``distribute_setup.py`` has been updated to allow Setuptools 0.7 to
  satisfy use_setuptools.

------
0.6.43
------

* Distribute #378: Restore support for Python 2.4 Syntax (regression in 0.6.42).

------
0.6.42
------

* External links finder no longer yields duplicate links.
* Distribute #337: Moved site.py to setuptools/site-patch.py (graft of very old
  patch from setuptools trunk which inspired PR #31).

------
0.6.41
------

* Distribute #27: Use public api for loading resources from zip files rather than
  the private method `_zip_directory_cache`.
* Added a new function ``easy_install.get_win_launcher`` which may be used by
  third-party libraries such as buildout to get a suitable script launcher.

------
0.6.40
------

* Distribute #376: brought back cli.exe and gui.exe that were deleted in the
  previous release.

------
0.6.39
------

* Add support for console launchers on ARM platforms.
* Fix possible issue in GUI launchers where the subsystem was not supplied to
  the linker.
* Launcher build script now refactored for robustness.
* Distribute #375: Resources extracted from a zip egg to the file system now also
  check the contents of the file against the zip contents during each
  invocation of get_resource_filename.

------
0.6.38
------

* Distribute #371: The launcher manifest file is now installed properly.

------
0.6.37
------

* Distribute #143: Launcher scripts, including easy_install itself, are now
  accompanied by a manifest on 32-bit Windows environments to avoid the
  Installer Detection Technology and thus undesirable UAC elevation described
  in `this Microsoft article
  <http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc709628%28WS.10%29.aspx>`_.

------
0.6.36
------

* Pull Request #35: In Buildout #64, it was reported that
  under Python 3, installation of distutils scripts could attempt to copy
  the ``__pycache__`` directory as a file, causing an error, apparently only
  under Windows. Easy_install now skips all directories when processing
  metadata scripts.

------
0.6.35
------


Note this release is backward-incompatible with distribute 0.6.23-0.6.34 in
how it parses version numbers.

* Distribute #278: Restored compatibility with distribute 0.6.22 and setuptools
  0.6. Updated the documentation to match more closely with the version
  parsing as intended in setuptools 0.6.

------
0.6.34
------

* Distribute #341: 0.6.33 fails to build under Python 2.4.

------
0.6.33
------

* Fix 2 errors with Jython 2.5.

* Distribute #336: `setup.py` no longer masks failure exit code when tests fail.
* Fix issue in pkg_resources where try/except around a platform-dependent
  import would trigger hook load failures on Mercurial. See pull request 32
  for details.
* Distribute #341: Fix a ResourceWarning.

------
0.6.32
------

* Fix test suite with Python 2.6.
* Fix some DeprecationWarnings and ResourceWarnings.
* Distribute #335: Backed out `setup_requires` superceding installed requirements
  until regression can be addressed.

------
0.6.31
------

* Distribute #303: Make sure the manifest only ever contains UTF-8 in Python 3.
* Distribute #329: Properly close files created by tests for compatibility with
  Jython.
* Work around Jython #1980 and Jython #1981.
* Distribute #334: Provide workaround for packages that reference `sys.__stdout__`
  such as numpy does. This change should address
  `virtualenv #359 <https://github.com/pypa/virtualenv/issues/359>`_ as long
  as the system encoding is UTF-8 or the IO encoding is specified in the
  environment, i.e.::

     PYTHONIOENCODING=utf8 pip install numpy

* Fix for encoding issue when installing from Windows executable on Python 3.
* Distribute #323: Allow `setup_requires` requirements to supercede installed
  requirements. Added some new keyword arguments to existing pkg_resources
  methods. Also had to updated how __path__ is handled for namespace packages
  to ensure that when a new egg distribution containing a namespace package is
  placed on sys.path, the entries in __path__ are found in the same order they
  would have been in had that egg been on the path when pkg_resources was
  first imported.

------
0.6.30
------

* Distribute #328: Clean up temporary directories in distribute_setup.py.
* Fix fatal bug in distribute_setup.py.

------
0.6.29
------

* Pull Request #14: Honor file permissions in zip files.
* Distribute #327: Merged pull request #24 to fix a dependency problem with pip.
* Merged pull request #23 to fix https://github.com/pypa/virtualenv/issues/301.
* If Sphinx is installed, the `upload_docs` command now runs `build_sphinx`
  to produce uploadable documentation.
* Distribute #326: `upload_docs` provided mangled auth credentials under Python 3.
* Distribute #320: Fix check for "createable" in distribute_setup.py.
* Distribute #305: Remove a warning that was triggered during normal operations.
* Distribute #311: Print metadata in UTF-8 independent of platform.
* Distribute #303: Read manifest file with UTF-8 encoding under Python 3.
* Distribute #301: Allow to run tests of namespace packages when using 2to3.
* Distribute #304: Prevent import loop in site.py under Python 3.3.
* Distribute #283: Reenable scanning of `*.pyc` / `*.pyo` files on Python 3.3.
* Distribute #299: The develop command didn't work on Python 3, when using 2to3,
  as the egg link would go to the Python 2 source. Linking to the 2to3'd code
  in build/lib makes it work, although you will have to rebuild the module
  before testing it.
* Distribute #306: Even if 2to3 is used, we build in-place under Python 2.
* Distribute #307: Prints the full path when .svn/entries is broken.
* Distribute #313: Support for sdist subcommands (Python 2.7)
* Distribute #314: test_local_index() would fail an OS X.
* Distribute #310: Non-ascii characters in a namespace __init__.py causes errors.
* Distribute #218: Improved documentation on behavior of `package_data` and
  `include_package_data`. Files indicated by `package_data` are now included
  in the manifest.
* `distribute_setup.py` now allows a `--download-base` argument for retrieving
  distribute from a specified location.

------
0.6.28
------

* Distribute #294: setup.py can now be invoked from any directory.
* Scripts are now installed honoring the umask.
* Added support for .dist-info directories.

  Workaround for #285.
* Distribute #231: Don't fiddle with system python when used with buildout
  (bootstrap.py)

------
0.6.26
------

* Distribute #183: Symlinked files are now extracted from source distributions.

  and determined that it no longer applies. Distribute should work fine with
  Unladen Swallow 2009Q3.
* Distribute #21: Allow PackageIndex.open_url to gracefully handle all cases of a
  httplib.HTTPException instead of just InvalidURL and BadStatusLine.
* Removed virtual-python.py from this distribution and updated documentation
  to point to the actively maintained virtualenv instead.
* Distribute #64: use_setuptools no longer rebuilds the distribute egg every
  time it is run
* use_setuptools now properly respects the requested version
* use_setuptools will no longer try to import a distribute egg for the
  wrong Python version
* Distribute #74: no_fake should be True by default.
* Distribute #72: avoid a bootstrapping issue with easy_install -U

-----
0.6.6

  (patch by Holger Krekel)

-----
0.6.5
-----

* Distribute #65: cli.exe and gui.exe are now generated at build time,
  depending on the platform in use.

* Distribute #67: Fixed doc typo (PEP 381/382)

* Distribute no longer shadows setuptools if we require a 0.7-series
  setuptools.  And an error is raised when installing a 0.7 setuptools with
  distribute.

  setuptools egg, whether in a shared egg directory or a system setuptools.

* Fixed a hole in sandboxing allowing builtin file to write outside of
  the sandbox.

-----
0.6c9
-----

 * Fixed a missing files problem when using Windows source distributions on
   non-Windows platforms, due to distutils not handling manifest file line
   endings correctly.

 * Updated Pyrex support to work with Pyrex 0.9.6 and higher.

 * Minor changes for Jython compatibility, including skipping tests that can't
   work on Jython.

 * Fixed not installing eggs in ``install_requires`` if they were also used for
   ``setup_requires`` or ``tests_require``.

 * Fixed not fetching eggs in ``install_requires`` when running tests.

 * Allow ``ez_setup.use_setuptools()`` to upgrade existing setuptools
   installations when called from a standalone ``setup.py``.

 * Added a warning if a namespace package is declared, but its parent package
   is not also declared as a namespace.

 * Support Subversion 1.5

 * Removed use of deprecated ``md5`` module if ``hashlib`` is available

 * Fixed ``bdist_wininst upload`` trying to upload the ``.exe`` twice

 * Fixed ``bdist_egg`` putting a ``native_libs.txt`` in the source package's
   ``.egg-info``, when it should only be in the built egg's ``EGG-INFO``.

 * Ensure that _full_name is set on all shared libs before extensions are
   checked for shared lib usage.  (Fixes a bug in the experimental shared
   library build support.)

 * Fix to allow unpacked eggs containing native libraries to fail more
   gracefully under Google App Engine (with an ``ImportError`` loading the
   C-based module, instead of getting a ``NameError``).

-----
0.6c7
-----

 * Fixed ``distutils.filelist.findall()`` crashing on broken symlinks, and
   ``egg_info`` command failing on new, uncommitted SVN directories.

 * Fix import problems with nested namespace packages installed via
   ``--root`` or ``--single-version-externally-managed``, due to the
   parent package not having the child package as an attribute.

-----
0.6c6
-----

 * Added ``--egg-path`` option to ``develop`` command, allowing you to force
   ``.egg-link`` files to use relative paths (allowing them to be shared across
   platforms on a networked drive).

 * Fix not building binary RPMs correctly.

 * Fix "eggsecutables" (such as setuptools' own egg) only being runnable with
   bash-compatible shells.

 * Fix ``#!`` parsing problems in Windows ``.exe`` script wrappers, when there
   was whitespace inside a quoted argument or at the end of the ``#!`` line
   (a regression introduced in 0.6c4).

 * Fix ``test`` command possibly failing if an older version of the project
   being tested was installed on ``sys.path`` ahead of the test source
   directory.

 * Fix ``find_packages()`` treating ``ez_setup`` and directories with ``.`` in
   their names as packages.

-----
0.6c5
-----

 * Fix uploaded ``bdist_rpm`` packages being described as ``bdist_egg``
   packages under Python versions less than 2.5.

 * Fix uploaded ``bdist_wininst`` packages being described as suitable for
   "any" version by Python 2.5, even if a ``--target-version`` was specified.

-----
0.6c4
-----

 * Overhauled Windows script wrapping to support ``bdist_wininst`` better.
   Scripts installed with ``bdist_wininst`` will always use ``#!python.exe`` or
   ``#!pythonw.exe`` as the executable name (even when built on non-Windows
   platforms!), and the wrappers will look for the executable in the script's
   parent directory (which should find the right version of Python).

 * Fix ``upload`` command not uploading files built by ``bdist_rpm`` or
   ``bdist_wininst`` under Python 2.3 and 2.4.

 * Add support for "eggsecutable" headers: a ``#!/bin/sh`` script that is
   prepended to an ``.egg`` file to allow it to be run as a script on Unix-ish
   platforms.  (This is mainly so that setuptools itself can have a single-file
   installer on Unix, without doing multiple downloads, dealing with firewalls,
   etc.)

 * Fix problem with empty revision numbers in Subversion 1.4 ``entries`` files

 * Use cross-platform relative paths in ``easy-install.pth`` when doing
   ``develop`` and the source directory is a subdirectory of the installation
   target directory.

 * Fix a problem installing eggs with a system packaging tool if the project
   contained an implicit namespace package; for example if the ``setup()``
   listed a namespace package ``foo.bar`` without explicitly listing ``foo``
   as a namespace package.

-----
0.6c3
-----

 * Fixed breakages caused by Subversion 1.4's new "working copy" format

-----
0.6c2
-----

 * The ``ez_setup`` module displays the conflicting version of setuptools (and
   its installation location) when a script requests a version that's not
   available.

 * Running ``setup.py develop`` on a setuptools-using project will now install
   setuptools if needed, instead of only downloading the egg.

-----
0.6c1
-----

 * Fixed ``AttributeError`` when trying to download a ``setup_requires``
   dependency when a distribution lacks a ``dependency_links`` setting.

 * Made ``zip-safe`` and ``not-zip-safe`` flag files contain a single byte, so
   as to play better with packaging tools that complain about zero-length
   files.

 * Made ``setup.py develop`` respect the ``--no-deps`` option, which it
   previously was ignoring.

 * Support ``extra_path`` option to ``setup()`` when ``install`` is run in
   backward-compatibility mode.

 * Source distributions now always include a ``setup.cfg`` file that explicitly
   sets ``egg_info`` options such that they produce an identical version number
   to the source distribution's version number.  (Previously, the default
   version number could be different due to the use of ``--tag-date``, or if
   the version was overridden on the command line that built the source
   distribution.)

-----
0.6b4
-----

 * Fix ``register`` not obeying name/version set by ``egg_info`` command, if
   ``egg_info`` wasn't explicitly run first on the same command line.

 * Added ``--no-date`` and ``--no-svn-revision`` options to ``egg_info``
   command, to allow suppressing tags configured in ``setup.cfg``.

 * Fixed redundant warnings about missing ``README`` file(s); it should now
   appear only if you are actually a source distribution.

-----
0.6b3
-----

 * Fix ``bdist_egg`` not including files in subdirectories of ``.egg-info``.

 * Allow ``.py`` files found by the ``include_package_data`` option to be
   automatically included.  Remove duplicate data file matches if both
   ``include_package_data`` and ``package_data`` are used to refer to the same
   files.

-----
0.6b1
-----

 * Strip ``module`` from the end of compiled extension modules when computing
   the name of a ``.py`` loader/wrapper.  (Python's import machinery ignores
   this suffix when searching for an extension module.)

------
0.6a11
------

 * Added ``test_loader`` keyword to support custom test loaders

 * Added ``setuptools.file_finders`` entry point group to allow implementing
   revision control plugins.

 * Added ``--identity`` option to ``upload`` command.

 * Added ``dependency_links`` to allow specifying URLs for ``--find-links``.

 * Enhanced test loader to scan packages as well as modules, and call
   ``additional_tests()`` if present to get non-unittest tests.

 * Support namespace packages in conjunction with system packagers, by omitting
   the installation of any ``__init__.py`` files for namespace packages, and
   adding a special ``.pth`` file to create a working package in
   ``sys.modules``.

 * Made ``--single-version-externally-managed`` automatic when ``--root`` is
   used, so that most system packagers won't require special support for
   setuptools.

 * Fixed ``setup_requires``, ``tests_require``, etc. not using ``setup.cfg`` or
   other configuration files for their option defaults when installing, and
   also made the install use ``--multi-version`` mode so that the project
   directory doesn't need to support .pth files.

 * ``MANIFEST.in`` is now forcibly closed when any errors occur while reading
   it.  Previously, the file could be left open and the actual error would be
   masked by problems trying to remove the open file on Windows systems.

------
0.6a10
------

 * Fixed the ``develop`` command ignoring ``--find-links``.

-----
0.6a9
-----

 * The ``sdist`` command no longer uses the traditional ``MANIFEST`` file to
   create source distributions.  ``MANIFEST.in`` is still read and processed,
   as are the standard defaults and pruning.  But the manifest is built inside
   the project's ``.egg-info`` directory as ``SOURCES.txt``, and it is rebuilt
   every time the ``egg_info`` command is run.

 * Added the ``include_package_data`` keyword to ``setup()``, allowing you to
   automatically include any package data listed in revision control or
   ``MANIFEST.in``

 * Added the ``exclude_package_data`` keyword to ``setup()``, allowing you to
   trim back files included via the ``package_data`` and
   ``include_package_data`` options.

 * Fixed ``--tag-svn-revision`` not working when run from a source
   distribution.

 * Added warning for namespace packages with missing ``declare_namespace()``

 * Added ``tests_require`` keyword to ``setup()``, so that e.g. packages
   requiring ``nose`` to run unit tests can make this dependency optional
   unless the ``test`` command is run.

 * Made all commands that use ``easy_install`` respect its configuration
   options, as this was causing some problems with ``setup.py install``.

 * Added an ``unpack_directory()`` driver to ``setuptools.archive_util``, so
   that you can process a directory tree through a processing filter as if it
   were a zipfile or tarfile.

 * Added an internal ``install_egg_info`` command to use as part of old-style
   ``install`` operations, that installs an ``.egg-info`` directory with the
   package.

 * Added a ``--single-version-externally-managed`` option to the ``install``
   command so that you can more easily wrap a "flat" egg in a system package.

 * Enhanced ``bdist_rpm`` so that it installs single-version eggs that
   don't rely on a ``.pth`` file.  The ``--no-egg`` option has been removed,
   since all RPMs are now built in a more backwards-compatible format.

 * Support full roundtrip translation of eggs to and from ``bdist_wininst``
   format.  Running ``bdist_wininst`` on a setuptools-based package wraps the
   egg in an .exe that will safely install it as an egg (i.e., with metadata
   and entry-point wrapper scripts), and ``easy_install`` can turn the .exe
   back into an ``.egg`` file or directory and install it as such.


-----
0.6a8
-----

 * Fixed some problems building extensions when Pyrex was installed, especially
   with Python 2.4 and/or packages using SWIG.

 * Made ``develop`` command accept all the same options as ``easy_install``,
   and use the ``easy_install`` command's configuration settings as defaults.

 * Made ``egg_info --tag-svn-revision`` fall back to extracting the revision
   number from ``PKG-INFO`` in case it is being run on a source distribution of
   a snapshot taken from a Subversion-based project.

 * Automatically detect ``.dll``, ``.so`` and ``.dylib`` files that are being
   installed as data, adding them to ``native_libs.txt`` automatically.

 * Fixed some problems with fresh checkouts of projects that don't include
   ``.egg-info/PKG-INFO`` under revision control and put the project's source
   code directly in the project directory.  If such a package had any
   requirements that get processed before the ``egg_info`` command can be run,
   the setup scripts would fail with a "Missing 'Version:' header and/or
   PKG-INFO file" error, because the egg runtime interpreted the unbuilt
   metadata in a directory on ``sys.path`` (i.e. the current directory) as
   being a corrupted egg.  Setuptools now monkeypatches the distribution
   metadata cache to pretend that the egg has valid version information, until
   it has a chance to make it actually be so (via the ``egg_info`` command).

-----
0.6a5
-----

 * Fixed missing gui/cli .exe files in distribution.  Fixed bugs in tests.

-----
0.6a3
-----

 * Added ``gui_scripts`` entry point group to allow installing GUI scripts
   on Windows and other platforms.  (The special handling is only for Windows;
   other platforms are treated the same as for ``console_scripts``.)

-----
0.6a2
-----

 * Added ``console_scripts`` entry point group to allow installing scripts
   without the need to create separate script files.  On Windows, console
   scripts get an ``.exe`` wrapper so you can just type their name.  On other
   platforms, the scripts are written without a file extension.

-----
0.6a1
-----

 * Added support for building "old-style" RPMs that don't install an egg for
   the target package, using a ``--no-egg`` option.

 * The ``build_ext`` command now works better when using the ``--inplace``
   option and multiple Python versions.  It now makes sure that all extensions
   match the current Python version, even if newer copies were built for a
   different Python version.

 * The ``upload`` command no longer attaches an extra ``.zip`` when uploading
   eggs, as PyPI now supports egg uploads without trickery.

 * The ``ez_setup`` script/module now displays a warning before downloading
   the setuptools egg, and attempts to check the downloaded egg against an
   internal MD5 checksum table.

 * Fixed the ``--tag-svn-revision`` option of ``egg_info`` not finding the
   latest revision number; it was using the revision number of the directory
   containing ``setup.py``, not the highest revision number in the project.

 * Added ``eager_resources`` setup argument

 * The ``sdist`` command now recognizes Subversion "deleted file" entries and
   does not include them in source distributions.

 * ``setuptools`` now embeds itself more thoroughly into the distutils, so that
   other distutils extensions (e.g. py2exe, py2app) will subclass setuptools'
   versions of things, rather than the native distutils ones.

 * Added ``entry_points`` and ``setup_requires`` arguments to ``setup()``;
   ``setup_requires`` allows you to automatically find and download packages
   that are needed in order to *build* your project (as opposed to running it).

 * ``setuptools`` now finds its commands, ``setup()`` argument validators, and
   metadata writers using entry points, so that they can be extended by
   third-party packages.  See `Creating distutils Extensions
   <http://pythonhosted.org/setuptools/setuptools.html#creating-distutils-extensions>`_
   for more details.

 * The vestigial ``depends`` command has been removed.  It was never finished
   or documented, and never would have worked without EasyInstall - which it
   pre-dated and was never compatible with.

------
0.5a12
------

 * The zip-safety scanner now checks for modules that might be used with
   ``python -m``, and marks them as unsafe for zipping, since Python 2.4 can't
   handle ``-m`` on zipped modules.

------
0.5a11
------

 * Fix breakage of the "develop" command that was caused by the addition of
   ``--always-unzip`` to the ``easy_install`` command.

-----
0.5a9
-----

 * Include ``svn:externals`` directories in source distributions as well as
   normal subversion-controlled files and directories.

 * Added ``exclude=patternlist`` option to ``setuptools.find_packages()``

 * Changed --tag-svn-revision to include an "r" in front of the revision number
   for better readability.

 * Added ability to build eggs without including source files (except for any
   scripts, of course), using the ``--exclude-source-files`` option to
   ``bdist_egg``.

 * ``setup.py install`` now automatically detects when an "unmanaged" package
   or module is going to be on ``sys.path`` ahead of a package being installed,
   thereby preventing the newer version from being imported.  If this occurs,
   a warning message is output to ``sys.stderr``, but installation proceeds
   anyway.  The warning message informs the user what files or directories
   need deleting, and advises them they can also use EasyInstall (with the
   ``--delete-conflicting`` option) to do it automatically.

 * The ``egg_info`` command now adds a ``top_level.txt`` file to the metadata
   directory that lists all top-level modules and packages in the distribution.
   This is used by the ``easy_install`` command to find possibly-conflicting
   "unmanaged" packages when installing the distribution.

 * Added ``zip_safe`` and ``namespace_packages`` arguments to ``setup()``.
   Added package analysis to determine zip-safety if the ``zip_safe`` flag
   is not given, and advise the author regarding what code might need changing.

 * Fixed the swapped ``-d`` and ``-b`` options of ``bdist_egg``.

-----
0.5a8
-----

 * The "egg_info" command now always sets the distribution metadata to "safe"
   forms of the distribution name and version, so that distribution files will
   be generated with parseable names (i.e., ones that don't include '-' in the
   name or version).  Also, this means that if you use the various ``--tag``
   options of "egg_info", any distributions generated will use the tags in the
   version, not just egg distributions.

 * Added support for defining command aliases in distutils configuration files,
   under the "[aliases]" section.  To prevent recursion and to allow aliases to
   call the command of the same name, a given alias can be expanded only once
   per command-line invocation.  You can define new aliases with the "alias"
   command, either for the local, global, or per-user configuration.

 * Added "rotate" command to delete old distribution files, given a set of
   patterns to match and the number of files to keep.  (Keeps the most
   recently-modified distribution files matching each pattern.)

 * Added "saveopts" command that saves all command-line options for the current
   invocation to the local, global, or per-user configuration file.  Useful for
   setting defaults without having to hand-edit a configuration file.

 * Added a "setopt" command that sets a single option in a specified distutils
   configuration file.

-----
0.5a7
-----

 * Added "upload" support for egg and source distributions, including a bug
   fix for "upload" and a temporary workaround for lack of .egg support in
   PyPI.

-----
0.5a6
-----

 * Beefed up the "sdist" command so that if you don't have a MANIFEST.in, it
   will include all files under revision control (CVS or Subversion) in the
   current directory, and it will regenerate the list every time you create a
   source distribution, not just when you tell it to.  This should make the
   default "do what you mean" more often than the distutils' default behavior
   did, while still retaining the old behavior in the presence of MANIFEST.in.

 * Fixed the "develop" command always updating .pth files, even if you
   specified ``-n`` or ``--dry-run``.

 * Slightly changed the format of the generated version when you use
   ``--tag-build`` on the "egg_info" command, so that you can make tagged
   revisions compare *lower* than the version specified in setup.py (e.g. by
   using ``--tag-build=dev``).

-----
0.5a5
-----

 * Added ``develop`` command to ``setuptools``-based packages.  This command
   installs an ``.egg-link`` pointing to the package's source directory, and
   script wrappers that ``execfile()`` the source versions of the package's
   scripts.  This lets you put your development checkout(s) on sys.path without
   having to actually install them.  (To uninstall the link, use
   use ``setup.py develop --uninstall``.)

 * Added ``egg_info`` command to ``setuptools``-based packages.  This command
   just creates or updates the "projectname.egg-info" directory, without
   building an egg.  (It's used by the ``bdist_egg``, ``test``, and ``develop``
   commands.)

 * Enhanced the ``test`` command so that it doesn't install the package, but
   instead builds any C extensions in-place, updates the ``.egg-info``
   metadata, adds the source directory to ``sys.path``, and runs the tests
   directly on the source.  This avoids an "unmanaged" installation of the
   package to ``site-packages`` or elsewhere.

 * Made ``easy_install`` a standard ``setuptools`` command, moving it from
   the ``easy_install`` module to ``setuptools.command.easy_install``.  Note
   that if you were importing or extending it, you must now change your imports
   accordingly.  ``easy_install.py`` is still installed as a script, but not as
   a module.

-----
0.5a4
-----

 * Setup scripts using setuptools can now list their dependencies directly in
   the setup.py file, without having to manually create a ``depends.txt`` file.
   The ``install_requires`` and ``extras_require`` arguments to ``setup()``
   are used to create a dependencies file automatically.  If you are manually
   creating ``depends.txt`` right now, please switch to using these setup
   arguments as soon as practical, because ``depends.txt`` support will be
   removed in the 0.6 release cycle.  For documentation on the new arguments,
   see the ``setuptools.dist.Distribution`` class.

 * Setup scripts using setuptools now always install using ``easy_install``
   internally, for ease of uninstallation and upgrading.

-----
0.5a1
-----

 * Added support for "self-installation" bootstrapping.  Packages can now
   include ``ez_setup.py`` in their source distribution, and add the following
   to their ``setup.py``, in order to automatically bootstrap installation of
   setuptools as part of their setup process::

    from ez_setup import use_setuptools
    use_setuptools()

    from setuptools import setup
    # etc...

-----
0.4a2
-----

 * Added ``ez_setup.py`` installer/bootstrap script to make initial setuptools
   installation easier, and to allow distributions using setuptools to avoid
   having to include setuptools in their source distribution.

 * All downloads are now managed by the ``PackageIndex`` class (which is now
   subclassable and replaceable), so that embedders can more easily override
   download logic, give download progress reports, etc.  The class has also
   been moved to the new ``setuptools.package_index`` module.

 * The ``Installer`` class no longer handles downloading, manages a temporary
   directory, or tracks the ``zip_ok`` option.  Downloading is now handled
   by ``PackageIndex``, and ``Installer`` has become an ``easy_install``
   command class based on ``setuptools.Command``.

 * There is a new ``setuptools.sandbox.run_setup()`` API to invoke a setup
   script in a directory sandbox, and a new ``setuptools.archive_util`` module
   with an ``unpack_archive()`` API.  These were split out of EasyInstall to
   allow reuse by other tools and applications.

 * ``setuptools.Command`` now supports reinitializing commands using keyword
   arguments to set/reset options.  Also, ``Command`` subclasses can now set
   their ``command_consumes_arguments`` attribute to ``True`` in order to
   receive an ``args`` option containing the rest of the command line.

-----
0.3a2
-----

 * Added new options to ``bdist_egg`` to allow tagging the egg's version number
   with a subversion revision number, the current date, or an explicit tag
   value.  Run ``setup.py bdist_egg --help`` to get more information.

 * Misc. bug fixes

-----
0.3a1
-----

 * Initial release.
