[ANN] PyInstaller 3.4

Hartmut Goebel

on behalf of the PyInstaller development team I'm happy to announce
PyInstaller 3.4. This release adds support for Python 3.7.

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

=== Important Changes ===

* Add support for Python 3.7 (#2760, #3007, #3076,
  #3399, #3656), implemented by Hartmut Goebel.

* Improved support for Qt5-based applications (#3439).
  By emulating much of the Qt deployment tools' behavior
  most PyQt5 variants are supported.
  However, Anaconda's PyQt5 packages are not supported
  because its ``QlibraryInfo`` implementation reports incorrect values.
  CI tests currently run on PyQt5 5.11.2. Many thanks to Bryan A. Jones for
  taking this struggle.

* Drop support for Python 3.3 (#3288), Thanks to Hugo and xiovat.
