pyqtdeploy v1.2 Released

8 January 2016

pyqtdeploy v1.2 has been released. This adds support for the latest versions of Python and also makes it easier to deploy applications to Windows without needing to re-compile Python.

  • Added the install action and --sysroot and --system-python command line options to pyqtdeploycli to copy Python from a standard Windows installation.
  • Added the --disable-patches command line option to pyqtdeploycli to prevent the patching of the Python source code.
  • Added the --include-dir, --interpreter, --python-library, --source-dir and --standard-library-dir command line options to pyqtdeploycli to override values specified in the project file.
  • Added the $PDY_PY_MAJOR, $PDY_PY_MINOR and $PDY_PY_MICRO pseudo-environment variables that can be embedded in file and directory paths specified in the Locations tab and are automatically expanded to the appropriate values.
  • The importer now supports the PEP 302 get_data(), get_code(), get_source() and is_package() optional import hooks.
  • Added support for Python v2.7.11, v3.4.4, v3.5.0 and v3.5.1.
  • Added support for the bdb and pdb modules.
