What is cx_Freeze?

cx_Freeze is a set of scripts and modules for freezing Python scripts
into executables in much the same way that py2exe and py2app do. It
requires Python 2.3 or higher since it makes use of the zip import
facility which was introduced in that version.

Where do I get it?

What's new?

Changes from 4.0 to 4.0.1
1) Added support for Python 2.6. On Windows a manifest file is now
required because of the switch to using the new Microsoft C runtime.
2) Ensure that hooks are run for builtin modules.
