There is...

Basically: there are few changes (for users) between 1.2.x and
1.4.x for x86 IBM PC users.  The big difference (for users) is
Macintosh and PC98 support.

1.4.x has all the features that 1.2.x had.  1.2.x is obsoleted
by 1.4.x.  1.2.x. is still maintained, because the 1.4.x API
is incompatible with the 1.2.x API, and people (like Conective ;-)
are still using 1.2.x ATM.  Also, 1.4.x is relatively new code,
and it is wise to be conservative about adopting new code in
this area of software!
