Change log for ``distlib``
--------------------------


0.3.1 (future)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Released: Not yet.

0.3.0
~~~~~

Released: 2019-10-29

- database

    - Issue #102 (partial): modules attribute of InstalledDistribution was
      incorrectly computed as a list of bytes, rather than a list of str. This
      has now been corrected.

- locators

    - Updated Locator._get_digest to check PyPI JSON responses for a "digests"
      dictionary before trying "algo_digest" keys. Thanks to Jeffery To for the
      patch.

- scripts

    - Fixed #123: Improved error message if a resource isn't found.

    - Fixed #124: Stopped norm-casing the executable written into shebangs, as
      it doesn't work for some non-ASCII paths.

    - Fixed #125: Updated launchers with versions that correctly report errors
      containing non-ASCII characters. The updated launchers now also support
      relative paths (see http://bit.ly/2JxmOoi for more information).

    - Changed Python version handling to accommodate versions like e.g. 3.10
      (no longer assume a version X.Y where X and Y are single digits).

- util

    - Fixed #127: Allowed hyphens in flags in export specifications.

- wheel

    - Changed Python version handling to accommodate versions like e.g. 3.10
      (no longer assume a version X.Y where X and Y are single digits).


0.2.9
~~~~~

Released: 2019-05-14

- index

    - Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.org/pypi.

- locators

    - Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.org/pypi.

- metadata

    - Relaxed metadata format checks to ignore 'Provides'.

- scripts

    - Fixed #33, #34: Simplified script template.

    - Updated Windows launchers.

- util

    - Fixed #116: Corrected parsing of credentials from URLs.

- wheel

    - Fixed #115: Relaxed check for '..' in wheel archive entries by not
      checking filename parts, only directory segments.

    - Skip entries in archive entries ending with '/' (directories) when
      verifying or installing.

- docs

    - Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.org/pypi.

    - Commented out Disqus comment section.

    - Changed theme configuration.

    - Updated some out-of-date argument lists.

- tests

    - Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.org/pypi.

    - Preserved umask on POSIX across a test.


0.2.8
~~~~~

Released: 2018-10-01

- database

    - Fixed #108: Updated metadata scan to look for the METADATA file as well
      as the JSON formats.

- locators

    - Fixed #112: Handled wheel tags and platform-dependent downloads correctly
      in SimpleScrapingLocator.

- metadata

    - Fixed #107: Updated documentation on testing to include information on
      setting PYTHONHASHSEED.

- scripts

    - Fixed #111: Avoided unnecessary newlines in script preambles, which caused
      problems with detecting encoding declarations. Thanks to Wim Glenn for the
      report and patch.

- util

    - Fixed #109: Removed existing files (which might have been symlinks) before
      overwriting.


0.2.7
~~~~~

Released: 2018-04-16

- compat

    - Fixed #105: cache_from_source is now imported from importlib.util where
      available.

- database

    - Addressed #102: InstalledDistributions now have a modules attribute which
      is a list of top-level modules as read from top_level.txt, if that is in
      the distribution info.

- locators

    - Fixed #103: Thanks to Saulius Žemaitaitis for the patch.

- metadata

    - Added support for PEP 566 / Metadata 1.3.

- scripts

    - Fixed #104: Updated launcher binaries. Thanks to Atsushi Odagiri for

~~~~~

- markers

    - Improved error messages issued when interpreting markers

      path is very long or contains spaces (to cater for a limitation in shebang
      line parsing on Linux)

    - Updated launcher binaries.

- tests

    - Numerous test refinements, not detailed further here.


0.2.5
~~~~~

Released: 2017-05-06

      sequences. Thanks to Ville Skyttä for the patch.

- locators

    - Made downloadability a factor in scoring URLs for preferences.

    - Replaced the implementation with code which parses requirements in
      accordance with PEP 508 and evaluates marker expressions according to
      PEP 508.

- util

    - Changed _csv_open to use utf-8 across all platforms on Python 3.x. Thanks
      to Alastair McCormack for the patch.

~~~~~

Released: 2016-09-30

- compat

    - Updated to not fail on import if SSL is unavailable.

      to avoid gpg2's behaviour of prompting for passwords, which interferes
      with the tests on some machines.

      Arcangeli for the patch.

    - Added errors queue to Locator.

- util

0.2.2
~~~~~

Released: 2016-01-30

- database

    - Issue #81: Added support for detecting distributions installed by wheel
      versions >= 0.23 (which use metadata.json rather than pydist.json).
      Thanks to Te-jé Rodgers for the patch.

- locators

    - Updated default PyPI URL to https://pypi.python.org/pypi

- metadata

    - Updated to use different formatting for description field for V1.1

- metadata

    - Added support for PEP 426 JSON metadata (pydist.json). The old
      metadata class is renamed to LegacyMetadata, and the (new)
      Metadata class wraps the JSON format (and also the legacy format,
      through LegacyMetadata).

      implemented validation of .rst descriptions, which is not done in
      distlib.

      with files which are already in use and hence cannot be deleted on
      Windows.

    - Changed the script generation when launchers are used to write a
      single executable which wraps a script (whether pre-built or generated)
      and includes a manifest to avoid UAC prompts on Windows.

    - Changed the interface for script generation options: the ``make`` and
      ``make_multiple`` methods of ``ScriptMaker`` now take an optional
      ``options`` dictionary.

- util

    - Added extract_by_key() to copy selected keys from one dict to another.

    - Added parse_name_and_version() for use in parsing "provides" fields.

    - Made split_filename more flexible.

    - Changed Wheel.install API (after consultation on distutils-sig).

    - Added support for PEP 426 JSON metadata (pydist.json).
