This hasn't had an update for a while. Is there any roadmap for Python 3.x support? That is asked by many.

    In my organization we are using Python 3 exclusively now. Perhaps the time has come to address the py2exe compatibility issue. A casual Google search for "py2exe python3" reveals that a very large user base is in need of this feature.

    Yes, py2exe for Python3 is coming. However, it will support python3.2 and later only; and the first alpha/beta versions will probably be somewhat restricted in funcitonality.

    Is this still the case, you think? It's something I'd die to see (cx_Freeze doesn't cut it).

    More now than ever. There are quite a few Python 3 features that I would love to use (such as better Unicode handling) that I cannot use due to py2exe being unavailable for Python 3.

    The first version of py2exe for Python 3 has been released today on pypi.
