We present the Feynman integral reduction program Kira 1.2 and describe its new features and other changes w.r.t. the previous versions. The main new features include a much faster equation generator, more flexible seed specification options, several predefined integral orderings, the reduction of systems of user-provided equations and a new technique to simplify coefficients by sampling variables over integers. Furthermore, we provide a collection of recommendations on how to use the program efficiently. This version has overall improvements in runtime for all reduction tasks compared to the previous versions of Kira.
