The Accessibility Guidelines Working Group has published Web Content 
Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 as a W3C Recommendation at:

https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG21/

The document received broad support from the W3C Advisory Committee and 
the W3C Director approved the transition to Recommendation. That means 
it is a stable standard ready for general implementation.W3C encourages 
organizations and individuals to review and update their policies to 
reflect the updated guidance provided by WCAG 2.1, in order to address 
more user needs in their websites.

All requirements (“success criteria”) from 2.0 are included in 2.1. 
There are additional success criteria in 2.1. They are introduced in 
"What's New in WCAG 2.1" at:
https://www.w3.org/WAI/standards-guidelines/wcag/new-in-21/
