As zlib 1.2.12 has been released for a lone time. Latest IPP 2021.6.0 version still just provides patch for zlib 1.2.11. When Intel will release the new IPP version with zlib 1.2.12 patch? 

Thanks.

We don't have a timeline on IPP to support zlib 1.2.12. It will be part of a future release. We will post the update in our release notes.

Thanks, Chao.

As you know, zlib 1.2.12 was released in March and fixed more vulnerabilities of zlib 1.2.11.  We are waiting for the new Intel IPP version with zlib 1.2.12 patch. 

Thanks.
