It is my privilege to present you with another release in the Python 2.7
series, Python 2.7.12.

Since the release candidate, there were two changes:
- The Windows binaries have been changed to use OpenSSL 1.0.2h. 
- The "about" dialog in IDLE was fixed.

Downloads, as always, are on python.org:

The complete 2.7.12 changelog is available at

Yet another Python 2.7.x release is anticipated near the end of the
year. Numerologists may wish to upgrade to Python 3 before we hit the
unlucky 2.7.13.
