SciPy 1.2.1 is a bug-fix release with no new features compared to 1.2.0.
Most importantly, it solves the issue that 1.2.0 cannot be installed
from source on Python 2.7 because of non-ascii character issues.
It is also notable that SciPy 1.2.1 wheels were built with OpenBLAS
0.3.5.dev, which may alleviate some linear algebra issues observed
in SciPy 1.2.0.
