Will Ver 8 have updated Easy Install (install.py) script updated Mar 30?

I have been figuring out how thing work with the last edition of ver 7 over the past few days and am waiting for the merged release of ver 8 before I start actually loading my data and making it work for me.

I had such a hard time getting Ver 7 installed because of poor documentation on manual installs. The only thing that worked was the Easy Install script (install.py)

I just want to be able to hit the ground running and not fighting with a new version that has install issues. So I am asking if the developers have addressed the install.py to make sure it works with the next release?
