Roon 1.1 (Build 102) is live!

Hey everyone! Build 102 is now live!

Like our last few releases, this is a maintenance release focused on getting bug fixes and performance improvements out to everyone now, as work continues on our forthcoming 1.2 release.

Build 102 contains a fix for a long-standing storage bug that should ensure Roon is more responsive to changes in your file tags. While the effects of this bug were relatively narrow, note that a database update and re-extraction of your tags will be required when you update. Thanks for your patience.

Two playback bugs have also been resolved for Build 102, one related to RAAT endpoints and one related to DSD playback using HQPlayer. An issue causing instability when a 64bit build was watching an iTunes library was also addressed, along with an identification bug related to tracks that start with numbers.

Along with these bug fixes, a couple pieces of minor functionality are included in Build 100. Volume leveling now works with TIDAL content, and the TIDAL “Add To Library” button is clearer, with a spinner and a warning if the process is taking too long. An update to Signal Path was also implemented to reflect HQPlayer’s new “Auto” behavior in 3.13b3.

Lastly, one more reminder about some changes we’ve made to our cloud metadata service to address artist equivalence issues. I’ve detailed those changes, and the ongoing work associated with them, here so please let us know about any issues you notice in your collections.

Work for 1.2 is in full swing, and there is so much coming to be excited about. Definitely keep the feedback, feature requests, and metadata corrections coming. Thanks everyone!
