(This is our last SDL1 only release. pygame 2 is the SDL2 or SDL1 based pygame and lives in our git main branch)
TLDR; Some highlights.
- python 3.7 support.
- beta pypy support. See Are we pypy yet?.
- pygame.draw fixes
- pygame.math is not experimental anymore. Speedups and bugfixes.
- Debian, Mac homebrew, mac virtualenv, manylinux and other platform fixes.
- documentation fixes, jedi support for type ahead in editors like VSCode and VIM.
- Surface.blits for blitting many surfaces at once more quickly.

I'm probably missing some people, and also missing some people who contributed in other ways.
For example, in discussions, issue reports, helping out on the wiki, the website, and for helping others
in the community, and providing good vibes. So whilst the commits are easy to use to make a list of people to thank, it's not inclusive of everyone who deserves thanks.
