This release of Installer brings the Linux and Windows 
versions together.

Windows users get some bug fixes & minor enhancements.

Linux users get everything Windows users have:
 - self extracting executables
 - advanced dependency analysis
 - one download that works with any Python from 1.5 to 2.1

Users of the earlier Linux versions will notice that most of the 
annoyances are gone:
 - scripts are hash-banged and executable
 - executable outputs are chmod'd
 - command line args are more conventional
 - output directory can be specified on the command line

What is it?
 The Installer is a set of tools for distributing Python
 applications. The target machines do not need to have
 Python installed, or may have a different version of 
 Python installed. Installer can create single directory or
 single file distributions of your app.

Old-Python-style license.
