Much of the work was about updating Thuban with the latest library
dependencies (gdal >= 1.5, sqlite3, owslib, wxpython 2.8). 

Of course a number of defects have been fixed. 

The Thuban 1.2.x series stabilises slowly and the next release will fix
most of the unicode problems by updating to pyshapelib 0.4. 

Feedback is still the best way to improve Thuban. Thanks to all who have
send bug reports, questions, requests, etc.

 - Extensions

   + wms: experimental migrated to owslib 0.3 (Didrik Pinte)

Notable issues:
 - Extension OGR:
        - Two tests fail (probably because of an ogr/shapelib problem.)
        https://wald.intevation.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=91
        The failure looks harmless. As the ogr layer support is beta
        it did not block the release.
        - Is slower than native Shapefile support.
        - Classification might not work.
- Extension profiling: makes use of a non-free "profile" module which
therefore will not be available on all python installations.
Consequently it is also not enabled by default.
 - Because we enabled translations for the Extensions only recently,
some translations will be outdated more then usual.
