What is cx_Freeze?

cx_Freeze is a set of utilities for freezing Python scripts into
executables using many of the techniques found in Thomas Heller's
py2exe, Gordon McMillan's Installer and the Freeze utility that ships
with Python itself.

Where do I get it?
(it may be a few days before the second site is updated)

What's new?

  1) Explicitly include the warnings module so that at runtime warnings
     are suppressed as when running Python normally.
  2) Improve the extension loader so that an ImportError is raised when
     the dynamic module is not located; otherwise an error about missing
     attributes is raised instead.
  3) Extension loaders are only created when copying dependencies since
     the normal module should be loadable in the situation where a Python
     installation is available.
  4) Added support for Python 2.4.
  5) Fixed the dependency checking for wxPython to be a little more
