py2exe 0.6.1 released
py2exe is a Python distutils extension which converts python scripts
into executable windows programs, able to run without requiring a
python installation. Console and Windows (GUI) applications, windows
NT services, exe and dll COM servers are supported.
Changes in this release:
* py2exe can now bundle binary extensions and dlls into the
library-archive or the executable itself. This allows to
finally build real single-file executables.
The bundled dlls and pyds are loaded at runtime by some special
code that emulates the Windows LoadLibrary function - they are
never unpacked to the file system.
This part of the code is distributed under the MPL 1.1, so this
license is now pulled in by py2exe.
* By default py2exe now includes the codecs module and the
* Several other fixes.
