Hi,

Source and binary archives are available [1]. This release is primarily a bug /
security fix release.

In the binary distributions:
  - The Windows builds were made using Visual Studio 2019; you may need to
    download the redistributables to run them
  - The Windows builds also have Unicode enabled (https://crbug.com/webp/559)

Everyone is encouraged to update. This will be finalized in the next few weeks
if there aren't any regressions.

From the NEWS file:
- 6/30/2022: version 1.2.3
  This is a binary compatible release.
  * security fix for lossless encoder (#565, chromium:1313709)
  * improved progress granularity in WebPReportProgress() when using lossless
  * improved precision in Sharp YUV (-sharp_yuv) conversion
  * many corrections to webp-lossless-bitstream-spec.txt (#551)
  * crash/leak fixes on error/OOM and other bug fixes (#558, #563, #569, #573)

As mentioned in https://crbug.com/webp/575, there's an incompatibility in this release due to a CMake target name change: WebP::libwebpmux -> WebP::webpmux. Projects may need to be updated if they're depending on the library. You can star the bug to track updates.
