Roon 1.2 (Build 142) is live!

Hey all,

Maintenance releases of Roon, RoonServer, and RoonBridge have gone live, with many bug fixes and a few pieces of new functionality.

By popular demand, our phone apps now feature the same TIDAL browsing functionality you know from our desktop and tablet apps.

While we were not originally planning to support DFF files, some internal testing necessitated a change, and that work is now complete. DFF files will now be imported automatically along with all the other formats supported in Roon.

Additionally, we’ve implemented a wide range of bug fixes related to audio configuration, file imports, RAAT streaming, Airplay, discovery processes, volume control, and more. A full list of changes is below.

If you do have any problems with Build 142, be sure to let us know the details so we can look into it.

Thanks everyone!

The Team at Roon Labs

  • AirPlay: fixed a bug in the mDNS implementation that caused confusion over IP addresses of AirPlay devices.
  • Fixed a crash when enabling/disabling audio devices
  • Fixed a bug that caused the MP3/AAC decoders on Linux to hang after approximately 10 minutes, causing stalls in radio playback and analysis
  • Fix for a bug that prevented Roon from releasing the audio device a few seconds after playback ended in situations where the media ended naturally.
  • Discovery protocol improvements

  • Fixed an issue calculating screen resolution on certain Android devices, such as Pioneer XDP-100R
  • CoreAudio: Roon now computes the number of channels per device properly
  • CoreAudio: for >2 channel devices, use all channels, and silence-fill the unused ones
  • Fix a crash when enumerating network interfaces on linux
  • RoonBridge should use the “correct” volume controls on pcm512x devices (IQaudIO, HifiBerry, etc).
  • Roon now recognizes “standby” and “source_deselected” as reasons why an endpoint might have gone away and displays the appropriate messages (only for certain RoonReady devices)
  • Fixed some issues with CoreAudio volume control, especially when switching between shared/exclusive mode
  • Fixed an issue where depending on the order of settings manipulations, Roon might try to output DoP in CoreAudio Shared Mode
  • Expand the set of situations where we return a “Device not found” message when dealing with ASIO drivers so that failures in “init” show up as “Device not found”
