I had to reinstall Ubuntu and downloaded simpleCV 1.3 superpack and now receive the following. Is there a newly introduced bug in 1.3-1?:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/simplecv", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('SimpleCV==1.3', 'console_scripts', 'simplecv')()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 351, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 2363, in load_entry_point
    return ep.load()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/", line 2088, in load
    entry = __import__(self.module_name, globals(),globals(), ['__name__'])
