On behalf of the PROJ development team I am happy to announce
the release of PROJ 8.2.1. The release includes updates to the
database and a number of bug fixes. See the detailed release
notes below.

Please note that from PROJ 9.0.0 and onwards (scheduled for release
March 1st 2022) CMake will be the only build system bundled with
the PROJ package. As a consequence support for Autotools builds
will stop when the 8.2 branch of PROJ reaches end of life.
We encourage everyone to adjust their build workflows as soon as
possible and report any discrepancies discovered between Autotools
and CMake builds. Details about the build system unification can be
found in PROJ RFC 7 [0].

I wish everyone in the PROJ community a very happy new year.
