+* Issue 99: now the standalone easy_install command doesn't uses a
+  "setup.cfg" if any exists in the working directory. It will use it

+working directory only if it was triggered from ``setup.py`` through the
+``install_requires`` option. The standalone command will not use that file.
 
 Command-Line Options
 --------------------
     projects, not in-development ones, because such projects may not
     have a currently-valid version number.  So, it usually only installs them
     when their ``setup.py`` directory is explicitly passed on the command line.

     However, if this option is used, then any in-development projects that were
     installed using the ``setup.py develop`` command, will be used to build
     eggs, effectively upgrading the "in-development" project to a snapshot
    installed using ``setup.py develop``.
 
  * Fixed not HTML-decoding URLs scraped from web pages

  * Fixed ``.dll`` files on Cygwin not having executable permisions when an egg
    is installed unzipped.
