Hello,\n\nPyInstaller 1.3 is out!\n\nGrab latest version at:\n[URL]http://pyinstaller.python-hosting.com/[/URL]\n\n\nDescription\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nPyInstaller is a program that converts (packages) Python programs into \nstand-alone executables, under Windows, Linux and Irix. Its main advantages \nover similar tools are that PyInstaller works with any version of Python since \n1.5, it builds smaller executables thanks to transparent compression, it is \nmulti-platform (so you can build one-file binaries also under Linux), and use \nthe OS support to load the dynamic libraries, thus ensuring full compatibility.\n\n\nFeatures\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n * Packaging of Python programs into standard executables, that\n work on computers without Python installed.\n * Multiplatform: works under Windows, Linux and Irix. (Mac port\n in development. See /branches/mac on SVN)\n * Multiversion: works under any version of Python since 1.5.\n * Dual packaging mode:\n o Single directory: build a directory containing an\n executable plus all the external binary modules (.dll,\n .pyd, .so) used by the program.\n o Single file: build a single executable file, totally\n self-contained, which runs without any external\n dependency.\n * Support for automatic binary packing through the well-known\n UPX compressor.\n * Optional console mode (see standard output and standard error\n at runtime).\n * Selectable executable icon (Windows only).\n * Fully configurable version resource section in executable\n (Windows only).\n * Support for building COM servers (Windows only).\n\n\nChangeLog\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n + Fix bug with user-provided icons disappearing from built executables\n when these were compressed with UPX.\n + Fix problems with packaging of applications using PIL (that was broken\n because of a bug in Python's import machinery, in recent Python\n versions). Also add a workaround including Tcl/Tk with PIL unless\n ImageTk is imported.\n + (Windows) When used under Windows XP, packaged programs now have\n the correct look & feel and follow user's themes (thanks to the manifest\n file being linked within the generated executable). This is especially\n useful for applications using wxPython.\n + Fix a buffer overrun in the bootloader (which could lead to a crash)\n when the built executable is run from within a deep directory (more than\n 70-80 characters in the pathname).\n * Bootstrap modules are now compressed in the executable (so that they\n are not visible in plaintext by just looking at it with a hex editor).\n * Fixed a regression introduced in 1.1: under Linux, the bootloader does\n not depend on libpythonX.X.so anymore.\n\n\nWe've moved\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\nPyInstaller has a new home:\n[URL]http://pyinstaller.python-hosting.com/[/URL]\n(thanks to the guys at webfaction.com for top-notch free hosting!)\n\nWe also own a domain name ([URL]http://pyinstaller.org[/URL]) which can be used as a \npermanent redirector to our home.\n\nThe mailing list moved as well, it's now at \n[URL]http://groups.google.com/group/PyInstaller[/URL].
