py2exe 0.6.8 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 0.6.8:

* Support for relative imports.

* Fix MemoryLoadLibra ry to handle loading function addresses by ordinal
numbers. Patch and test by Matthias Miller.

* Using the options compressed=1, bundle_files=3, and zipfile=None at
the same time now works; patch from Alexey Borzenkov.

* Allow renaming of single-executable files; patch from Alexey
Borzenkov.

* Embedding icon resources into the image now works correctly even for
ico files containing multiple images.

* pyd files from different packages with the same filename no longer
conflict. Patch from Grant Edwards.

* There are new samples for the 'typelibs' support, including the new
option of pre-generating a typelib and specifying the file as an
input to py2exe.

* The test suite is now included in the source distribution.
Changes in 0.6.6:

* Better support for Python 2.5.

* Experimental support for 64-bit builds of Python on win64.

* Better ISAPI support.

* New samples for ISAPI and COM servers.

* Support for new "command-line styles" when building Windows services.

Changes in 0.6.5:

* Fixed modulefinder / mf related bugs introduced in 0.6.4. This
will be most evident when working with things like
win32com.shell and xml.xpath.

* Files no longer keep read-only attributes when they are copied
as this was causing problems with the copying of some MS DLLs.

Changes in 0.6.4:

* New skip-archive option which copies the Python bytecode files
directly into the dist directory and subdirectories - no
archive is used.

* An experimental new custom-boot-script option which allows a
boot script to be specified (e.g., --custom-boot-script=cbs.py)
which can do things like installing a customized stdout
blackhole. See py2exe's boot_common.py for examples of what can
be done. The custom boot script is executed during startup of
the executable immediately after boot_common.py is executed.

* Thomas Heller's performance improvements for finding needed
modules.

* Mark Hammond's fix for thread-state errors when a py2exe
created executable tries to use a py2exe created COM DLL.

Changes in 0.6.3:

* First release assembled by py2exe's new maintainer, Jimmy
Retzlaff. Code changes in this release are from Thomas Heller
and Gordon Scott.

* The dll-excludes option is now available on the command line.
It was only possible to specify that in the options argument to
the setup function before.

The dll-excludes option can now be used to filter out dlls like
msvcr71.dll or even w9xpopen.exe.

* Fix from Gordon Scott: py2exe crashed copying extension modules
in packages.

Changes in 0.6.2:

* Several important bugfixes:

- bundled extensions in packages did not work correctly, this
made the wxPython single-file sample fail with newer wxPython
versions.

- occasionally dlls/pyds were loaded twice, with very strange
effects.

- the source distribution was not complete.

- it is now possible to build a debug version of py2exe.

Changes in 0.6.1:

* 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
encodings package.

* Several other fixes.
