   of the corresponding `py` file is enough to decide if the file and
   its associated `pyc` or `pyo` files have changed.
-  The hash is either the empty string, the **MD5** hash of
-  the file, encoded in hex, or the hash algorithm as named in
+  The hash is either the empty string or the hash algorithm as named in
   ``hashlib.algorithms_guaranteed``, followed by the equals character
-  ``=``, followed by the urlsafe-base64-nopad encoding of the digest 
+  ``=``, followed by the urlsafe-base64-nopad encoding of the digest
   (``base64.urlsafe_b64encode(digest)`` with trailing ``=`` removed).
 - the file's size in bytes
 Here's an example of a RECORD file (extract)::
-    lib/python2.6/site-packages/docutils/,b690274f621402dda63bf11ba5373bf2,9544
+    lib/python2.6/site-packages/docutils/,md5=nWt-Dge1eug4iAgqLS_uWg,9544

+    python2.6/site-packages/docutils-0.5.dist-info/METADATA,md5=ovJyUNzXdArGfmVyb0onyA,195
 Notice that the `RECORD` file can't contain a hash of itself and is just mentioned here
 A project that installs a `config.ini` file in `/etc/myapp` will be added like this::
-    /etc/myapp/config.ini,b690274f621402dda63bf11ba5373bf2,9544
+    /etc/myapp/config.ini,md5=gLfd6IANquzGLhOkW4Mfgg,9544
 For a windows platform, the drive letter is added for the absolute paths,
 so a file that is copied in c:\MyApp\ will be::
-    c:\etc\myapp\config.ini,b690274f621402dda63bf11ba5373bf2,9544
+    c:\etc\myapp\config.ini,md5=gLfd6IANquzGLhOkW4Mfgg,9544
