ANN: distlib 0.3.1 released on PyPI


I've recently released version 0.3.1 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:

* Fixed #132: Added documentation to help with relative interpreter paths. Thanks
? to Paul Kienzle for the patch.

* Fixed #134: Allowed specifying a different target Python version when generating
? scripts.

* Fixed #135: Exposed the ``enquote_executable`` function previously implemented
? as an internal function.

* Addressed #138: Improved metadata support for newer metadata versions. Thanks to
? James Tocknell for the patch.

* Changed the output of flags in entry point definitions in wheels. Thanks to
? frostming (??) for the patch.

* Stopped writing JSON metadata. Only old-style metadata is written now.

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]
