Hi all,

I've just uploaded bbfreeze 0.94.0 to python's cheeseshop.
bbfreeze creates standalone executables from python scripts. It's similar
in functionality to py2exe or cx_Freeze.

New in this version is support for relative imports. It also contains some
for packaging PyXML and cElementTree.

It offers the following features:

easy installation
  bbfreeze can be installed with setuptools' easy_install command.

zip/egg file import tracking
  bbfreeze tracks imports from zip files. Note that calls to setuptools'
  pkg_resources.require will be replaced with a dummy implementation.
  Calls to resource handling functions are *not* implemented, and
  freezing packages using these features of pkg_resources will not be
  possible without further work.

multiple script freezing
  bbfreeze can freeze multiple scripts at once.

python interpreter included
  bbfreeze will create an extra executable named 'py', which might be
  used like the python executable itself.

bbfreeze works on windows and UNIX-like operating systems. It
currently does not work on OS X. bbfreeze has been tested with python
2.4 and 2.5. bbfreeze will not work with python versions prior to 2.3
as it uses the zipimport feature introduced with python 2.3.
