I'm about to make a new release of zc.buildout that uses a different policy for selecting distributions. In particular, by default, zc.buildout will now prefer final distributions over 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 buildout option:

  prefer-final = false

I decided, with some prompting from Martin Aspeli, that this would be too disruptive. The latest release of zc.buildout still supports newest releases. To prefer final releases, you have to set the prefer-final option to true. In zc.buildout version 2, final releases will be prefered by default.
