List of updates from Roon on current issues in 1.8

Hi, Dean.

The main purpose of this topic is to highlight the responses of Roon team members to issues with Roon 1.8. I created the topic over a month ago, when some users believed that Roon were not responding to issues, mainly because it was hard to keep up with the volume of posts/topics at that time.

The post linking to the support topic itself serves this purpose, and if just one user who is effected by this issue and who wasn’t aware of that specific topic, sees the post and understands that Roon is working on resolving the issue and posts their experience, then that is good in my book.

I have no intention of playing down the importance of the issue, nor the impact on effected users. I understand those effected have been waiting a long time for an update. I hope that it is resolved very soon.

The list isn’t meant to be a list of all major issues, but limited to the areas I roughly defined in my OP. I understand why you disagree with the issue being excluded from the list, but from my perspective, I am only aware of around 20 posters on that topic who are effected, plus one other who posted a seperate support topic, and was linked to the existing support topic.

Of course, more users will have been effected - I very likely have missed other topics on the issue, and not everyone effected will post to the forum.

The list, however badly you feel I have collated it, is not based on my own use-case.

As I’ve said, I totally understand your frustration, and I really hope you and all the effected users can get back to enjoying Roon as soon as possible.

Before posting in this thread, ask yourself the following question:

Does my post link a response by Roon staff to a 1.8 issue ?

If yes, post away. If not, don’t post in this thread, your post will be deleted.


@SimplicityCompass one to add to the list, please. this has now also received recognition by Roon staff.

Thank you.



It seems from a recent post, Roon are regarding the back button appearing outside of the menu as a bug:

@SimplicityCompass Just wondering: are you a human, or an A.I.-entity trained on diplomacy and friendliness? Anyhow, great job you are doing. Thx!


Thank you, your kind comment is very much appreciated.

I think this topic belongs here: the description of compositions has disappeared on mobile devices (at least iOS) since v. 1.8.

See this thread: Blurb about compositions not visible in 1.8 - #5 by Bped

Thanks for pinning to this thread if appropriate so that it can be addressed

This one took a while but has now finally been recognized as an issue.

Hi @Bped,

I’m seeing details on the compositions from the ‘info’ tab (iOS iPhone), I see this on your example from the topic:

I would suggest posting again on your topic if it is still an issue for you, and I’ll keep an eye on any further response from Roon. I’m not saying it isn’t an issue for you, just that I haven’t seen any other feedback that it wasn’t resolved (apart from one like by @bbrip on your last post in that topic).


PS @bbrip in @Bped’s topic above, could you confirm if the issue also hasn’t been resolved for you?


Thank you.


Thanks @SimplicityCompass I had not seen the Info tab that initially was missing in v 1.8 but that has been added with the latest update. Case solved!!
