Hey guys, long time no see! For the past few months, we have been working on making Lunar Client fully compatible with Minecraft versions 1.12, 1.15, and 1.16. A few weeks ago, we silently released these versions and have fixed many issues along the way. It is still not perfect, but today we are officially announcing the release of these three versions.

We have also made Lunar Client compatible with Microsoft accounts, re-enabled freelook, fixed a ton of bugs, and added new features. We plan on returning to our old days of constantly releasing patch notes. Make sure to follow us on all of our new social media accounts so you never miss an update: lunarclient.com/socials. Thank you for all your support and we look forward to hearing your feedback and suggestions.

We also quickly want to say that we are still hiring. Visit lunarclient.com/jobs for all relevant information. Thank you all for the constant support; Lunar Client is made for the players, by the players.
