  Bug fixes:
  - recompile if .py file in a package is newer
  - fix segfault on Linux / Unix if executable is on

    script names
  - many other minor bug fixes

Python versions:
  tested with Python 1.5 to 2.2

What is it:
  The Installer package is any easy way to deploy
   Python apps to systems without Python installed 
   (or with incompatible Pythons installed).

   Installer support single-file and single-directory
   deployments. On Windows, Installer supports
   COM, including in-process COM servers.
