EarlyAccess: Roon 2.0 Build 1419 is Live! [UPDATED]

Hello Everyone,

UPDATE: Please be informed that we’ve released an updated Roon version for desktop clients -1419. Build 1418 was lacking a few AirPlay changes.

We’ve made significant progress with the issues that have been reported with AirPlay 2 devices that have passcodes enabled and wanted to get that fix out to everyone ahead of this relase.

If you’ve had problems using Roon with any of your passcode-enabled Airplay devices, please test with this build and let us know how it goes. And if your AirPlay devices have been working without issue, we would appreciate you setting a passcode and confirming things are working as expected.

We’ve also corrected a regression that led to missing album format information for content sourced from streaming services.

Thanks again for all of your hard work in testing this release!

The Team at Roon Labs
