The May 2016 Raspbian image contains the pigpio library (or maybe just the daemon), according to the blog. With the May Raspbian lite, I could get the daemon with "apt-get install pigpio". The Python part of pigpio was not fetched, however.
I was wondering if I still have to download/compile the entire pigpio project myself. Not that this is a problem, but I tend to avoid having both an "official" and a manually installed package on the system. So if I have missed something I'd be glad if someone could point me to it.
