on behalf of the PyInstaller development team I'm happy to announce
PyInstaller 3.2.1, the long awaited bug-fix release


Thanks for all those who contributed questions, bug-reports or

=== What it is ===

PyInstaller bundles a Python application and all its dependencies into a
single package. The user can run the packaged app without installing a
Python interpreter or any modules.

PyInstaller reads a Python script written by you. It analyzes your code to
discover every other module and library your script needs in order to
Then it collects copies of all those files – including the active Python
interpreter! – and puts them with your script in a single folder, or
optionally in a single executable file.

PyInstaller is tested against Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. However, it
is not a cross-compiler: to make a Windows app you run PyInstaller in
Windows; to make a Linux app you run it in Linux, etc. PyInstaller has
been used successfully with AIX, Solaris, and FreeBSD, but is not tested
against them.

=== Installation ===

PyInstaller can be installed from PyPi using

   pip install pyinstaller
