Lunar 6.4.2

Alin Panaitiu issued version 6.3 of Lunar in early November with improvements and bug fixes for the display brightness control utility. The update now attempts to use the lux sensors of Apple external monitors when available, uses the window average for sensor lux when adapting Auto XDR, shrinks the size of the menu bar icon, works around a display connection bug in macOS 14 Sonoma when fetching display info while disconnected, fixes OSD chiclets disappearing in Sonoma, and resolves a hang that occurred when saving display state while restarting from a crash.

After Apple’s Scary Fast product announcements, Lunar 6.4 was released to add support for the new M3 MacBook Pro and M3 iMac models, disable Lunar adjustments when the screen is locked, and make the cursor cling to the middle of the slider knob instead of lagging. Version 6.4.1 then fixed a bug that prevented a custom preset from being applied correctly if it was saved with the same name as a previously deleted preset, and 6.4.2 addressed a preset-related crash introduced in 6.4.1.
