I've recently released version 0.3.3 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 #152: Removed splituser() function which wasn't used and is deprecated.

* Fixed #149: Handle version comparisons correctly in environment markers.

* Add ARM-64 launchers and support code to use them. Thanks to Niyas Sait and
  Adrian Vladu for their contributions.

* Fixed #148: Handle a single trailing comma following a version. Thanks to Blazej
  Floch for the report and suggested fix.

* Fixed #150: Fix incorrect handling of epochs.

* Reverted handling of tags for Python >= 3.10 (use 310 rather than 3_10). This is
  because PEP 641 was rejected.

* Added a GitHub Actions workflow to perform tests.

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]
