I'm about to make a new release of zc.buildout that uses a
different policy for selecting distributions. In particular, by

non-final ones. If there are final and non-final distributions
that satisfy a requirement, buildout will, by default, select a
final distribution even if there are non-final distributions
that satisfy a requirement.
This release will cause many existing buildouts to use older
distributions than they do now.
You can change this behavior by providing a prefer-final
prefer-final = false
How will this be versioned?
It is 1.0.0b29.
(The buildout version numbers are a bit of a mess, as I was
overoptimistic when I made the initial "beta" release. Hm, maybe
I should start using "e"s. These could be eek release. ;)
It'd be helpful if it were a different major (or at least minor)
version than the current one, to make it easier for people to
stick with a version that has the policy they normally use.
Maybe I should have, but the release is out of the barn.
If this ends up causing too much pain, I could back this out by
making a "b30" release with the old policy, although, I'd rather not.
No, I'm wrong, I'm going to back these changes out with a b30 release
and then release them with a 2x release.
