This applies to Python 3.5.1rc1 only.  The Windows 64-bit standalone installer installs setuptools 18.2, but the latest version is 18.5.  It should be noted that the Python 2.7.11rc1 Windows 64-bit standalone installer installs setuptools 18.5.  Other Python 3.5.1.rc1 installers (web based, or for other platforms) may have this problem as well, but I have not tried them out.

Thanks for the report but, since 3.5.1 has subsequently been released, I don't think there is any reason to keep this open.  The distributions vendored with ensurepip - like pip, setuptools, and their dependencies - will typically become out-of-date after any Python release, since they are all on independent release cycles.  The main function of ensurepip is to ensure that you have a known working environment to install distributions from PyPI and elsewhere, including updates to pip and setuptools themselves.  FWIW, the bundled versions of pip and setuptools have already been updated in the 3.5 branch for the next maintenance release of 3.5.

Just to clarify, it's intended that you simply "python -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools" to get the latest version.
