Lunar for Mac4.9.1

18 September 2021

Intelligent adaptive brightness for your external display.

What is Lunar for Mac

Lunar lets you control and sync the brightness of your monitors

  • Sensor-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on an external light sensor
  • Sync-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on the built-in light sensor of the Macbook or iMac
  • Location-based Adaptive Brightness (and contrast) based on the sunrise/sunset times in your location
  • App Exception list if you need more brightness for specific activities (watching movies, design work)
  • Individual settings per display
  • Manual controls and hotkeys for setting brightness and contrast that respect the min/max values per monitor

It doesn't interfere at all with the native adaptive brightness that macOS implements for the built-in display

It works well along Night Shift and True Tone (and f.lux if Gamma/Software controls are not used)

What's new in Lunar

Version 4.9.1:
Fixes:
  • Fix crash because of gamma smooth transition logic
  • Fix crash when Sensor Mode would update brightness on a non-main thread
  • Avoid app entering a not responding state when in Location mode and waking the screen
Improvements:
  • Make sure Gamma never goes below 0.08 on brightness 0 to retain visibility
  • Allow press-and-hold detection to be disabled for users that encounter problems with it
  • Remove unused serial-port and volume-based sensor options

Well, I can now control my external monitor (LG 4K HDR) brightness with my Apple keyboard using DDC (USB-C to Display Port cable from M1 Mac mini). Excellent work by all involved!
