This appears to be because when I installed the AUR package originally, I had a virtualenv activated for another project. I have no idea why that would break it, but deactivating the virtualenv and uninstalling/reinstalling fixed the problem.

Sorry for the spurious report.

I can't reproduce this. I also didn't make any changes in the packaging approach for this release. Did the previous version work? Or is this the first time you tried to install the package?

BTW, have you previously installed pipx in some other way (e.g. pip install --user)? The traceback you posted also implies that you are in a virtualenv or something

After installing version of this package, I get the following:

% pipx                         
Traceback (most recent call last):

pkg_resources.DistributionNotFound: The 'pipx==' distribution was not found and is required by the application

It seems that there is a packaging error somewhere.
