The following patches have been committed since the 1.2 release:
This new release branches from PIFR 6.x-2.17, and includes all of the fixes found in that release. Please see the 6.x-2.17 release notes for more details (including feature changes which may affect all implementations).
In addition, it contains some significant changes to the operation of the test runners. Specifically, it switches to using Drush for the site-under-test installation process.
This results in slightly less installation coverage on the testbots, but should also make it easier for developers to duplicate/debug installation problems with their tests.
