Hi,

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

In the binary distributions:
  - The Linux binary files are now fully static for compatibility across more
    distributions
  - The Windows builds were made using Visual Studio 2019; you may need to
    download the redistributables to run them
  - The xcframework builds now include arm64 simulator targets

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

From the NEWS file:
- 7/20/2021: version 1.2.1
  This is a binary compatible release.
  * minor lossless encoder improvements and x86 color conversion speed up
  * add ARM64 simulator support to xcframeworkbuild.sh (#510)
  * further security related hardening in libwebp & examples
    (issues: #497, #508, #518)
    (chromium: #1196480, #1196773, #1196775, #1196777, #1196778, #1196850)
    (oss-fuzz: #28658, #28978)

v1.2.1 has been tagged [2]. There were only a couple mostly cosmetic changes since rc2 [3].
