The only thing I've seen has less to do with Scribus than other 
software.  I'm using FC3 and it appears the last update of freetype 
(2.1.9-1) changed the order of the words in some of the Nimbus fonts, so 
I had to tell Scribus what to substitute.
I think many will tell you that there are many improvements since 1.2 
that by themselves make it worthwhile to update.
If you're clever like some, you'll save your 1.2 so you can go back to 
it easily just in case.
