`py2app`_ is the bundlebuilder replacement we've all been waiting for.  
It is implemented as a distutils command, similar to `py2exe`_, that 
builds Mac OS X applications from Python scripts, extensions, and 
related data files.  It tries very hard to include all dependencies it 
can find so that your application can be distributed standalone, as Mac 
OS X applications should be.

`py2app`_ 0.1.9 is included in the installer for `PyObjC`_ 1.3.  If you 
have installed `PyObjC`_ 1.3, then you already have `py2app`_ 0.1.9

py2app 0.1.9 is a minor bug fix release:

Bugs fixed:

- bdist_mpkg now builds zip files that are correctly unzipped
   by all known tools.
- The behavior of the bootstrap has changed slightly such that
   ``__file__`` should now point to your main script, rather than
   the bootstrap.  The main script has also moved to ``Resources``,
   from ``Resources/Python``, so that ``__file__`` relative resource
   paths should still work.
