py2exe is a Python distutils extension which converts python scripts into executable windows programs, able to run without requiring a python installation. Console and Windows (GUI) applications, windows NT services, exe and dll COM servers are supported.
This release fixes a few bugs in the 0.5.2 version:
* The windows installer has been fixed to avoid problems when doing non-admin installs. Thanks to Harald A. Massa for testing. * Applied a patch from Mark Hammond to correctly manage the thread state in dll COM servers. * Add a line feed to the script's code, to avoid problems byte-compiling it when it contains trailing white space. * Fix a problem with Python 2.4 when no extension modules are needed - py2exe didn't track down that python24.dll is needed.
py2exe 0.5.2 is a bugfix release.
* Print a message explaining what's going on whan a service exe is started from the command line. * py2exe did build invalid version resources, they didn't show up correctly on Win98 at least. Patch by Roger Upole. * Fix a buffer overflow in the C code. Patch by Ralf Sieger, closes bug item #893310 * py2exe now (again) has a builtin list of dlls which should never be distributed * Patch sys.winver in the distributed pythonXY.dll, so that there is no possibility of conflicts with existing distributions and the registry keys found there. Patch by Mark Hammond. * Fix several problems when an exception in a 'windows' exe occurs. * Include a workaround for unbounded recursion in modulefinder when Jason Jorendorff's path module is installed See also http://python.org/sf/876278 * Fix problems when package_dir is set in the setup script, see http://tinyurl.com/yuc5l * py2exe can now be built from the sources with mingw32 * py2exe does now handle precompile .pyo and .pyc files (patch by Shane Holloway) * Fix a problem when the exe's directory contains single quotes * Register service dependencies when installing a service * Return an exit code of 255 from the exe when there's an uncatched exception running the main script. * Print a warning instead of failing to build with weird version numbers.
