I've pushed to all game servers support for 1.16.2. This allows you to connect using .2 right away, yet we're still running .1 internally, so don't go looking for Piglin Brutes right away!
While you can connect using either game versions now, our requirement will move up to .2 eventually, so I suggest that you update your game whenever you can so you don't forget about it later.
Additionally, the internal version of resource packs has been updated on the new game release. Nothing changed besides that, so if you recently downloaded Sphen's update, you're still good to go. You will have to re-set them, though, as they will show as outdated (even if they work). Alternatively, you can grab the newly updated versions here.
