Kristian Høgsberg has put out the first point release to Wayland 1.2 and its adjoining Weston reference compositor. While mostly about bug-fixes, there's also some original new work found in Wayland/Weston 1.2.1.

The Wayland/Weston 1.2.1 release was announced on Thursday by Kristian via the wayland-devel list.

The 1.2.1 updates are mostly about shipping bug fixes and providing documentation updates, but a new feature is also the touch support for the toytoolkit.
