Xpra: Ticket #1574: package python3 client on win32
Problem is that MSYS2 ships python 3.6 now, the version of cx_freeze that we use (the only one that works for python2) is 4.3.4... but that one does not build with python 3.5 or 3.6. Ouch.
The latest cx_freeze version 5 does produce a package, but not a usable one...
- fix cx_freeze 5 support (#1528) - preferred option
- find the patches to allow us to build cx_freeze 4.3.4 against python 3.5
- #640 python3 client
- #1568 python3 tracker ticket

Hi Antoine, MSYS2 also ships Python 2.7 (actually 3 versions, 2 native and one msys2/cygwin-y).
Tue, 01 Aug 2017 14:08:18 GMT - Antoine Martin: status changed
changed from new to assigned
We already use the python 2.7 from MSYS2, this ticket is about moving to python3 in time for the 3.0 release. Or at least having a usable python3 version on MS Windows.

- opengl works with GTK3: ticket:1569#comment:5
- non-opengl case needs fixing: windows lack decorations!
- opengl check tries to import
- keyboard tool fails to import "Glib" (edit: was packaging problem?)
- gl colors gradient example needs converting to GTK3 (edit: disabled in r17005)
- webcam: opencv is missing something (edit: fixed here ticket:1483#comment:3 - but 64-bit builds still fail)
- running on a 64-bit system fails miserably (tried both 32-bit and 64-bit builds): the GTK3 rendering goes haywire, window decorations go AWOL, etc
- cryptography still missing

Some of the brokenness may be explained by the packaging? (see ticket:1528#comment:10)

changed from assigned to closed
set to fixed
changed from 3.0 to 2.2
The python3 version works at least as well as the python2 version and has the advantage of supporting transparency (just not with the opengl backend: #1682).
