1.2.6. SInce Qsymm is an optional dependency of Kwant, this
backwards-incompatible change only affects Kwant users who use it.
- Minor bugs were fixed in the KPM module.
Changes after Kwant 1.4.2
- Builder properly handles Hermitian conjugation of array-like values.
Before, if the value was provided not as a true array but, for example, as a
list of lists, it was not conjugated, which could lead to generation of a
non-Hermitian Hamiltonian matrix without emitting any error.
