Hi all,

I uploaded bbfreeze 0.97.3 to the python package index.

bbfreeze creates standalone executables from python scripts (similar to
py2exe).  bbfreeze works on windows and unix-like operating systems, but
does not support OS X.

bbfreeze is able to freeze multiple scripts, handles egg files,
namespace packages and tracks binary dependencies.

Changes in this release include:

- exclude ms-win-api-* and query.dll.
- make py parse minimal set of options required to run py.test on the
  frozen executable.
- link with /LARGEADDRESSAWARE on win32
- ensure RPATH of application loader has the right value. try to fix
  it with patchelf if not.
- set dont_write_bytecode and no_user_site flags if they are
- handle pip installed namespace packages

More information can be found at the python package index:
