Minecraft 1.16.5 was released on January 15. The new version fixes two critical stability issues. There are no additional details on the release announcement page[*1] , but it's clear that these bugs need to be fixed ASAP.
Thankfully, the folks who maintain Spigot[*2] , the Minecraft server mod we run here at JDRGaming, realized that a quick turnaround was important, and released an updated version of Spigot almost immediately.
The JDRGaming Minecraft server is now running Spigot 1.16.5. If you notice any problems with the new version, please use the About/contact link above to report them.
