v2021.06.01 was supposed to be the last version where the windows x86 binary is built with Python 3.4 and thus have compatibility with Windows XP. However, a bug was discovered in video decryption when using -N for the last version and I did not want the last release to be a buggy one. So, while python 3.4 support has already been officially dropped, the yt-dlp_x86.exe of this release is built with it, making this the actual last release that supports Windows XP
