Roon 1.7 (Build 528) is Live!

Hi everyone!

We have a maintenance release going live, with a number of bug fixes and performance improvements.

As we continue to push Roon’s graphical capabilities forward, we’ve become aware of issues related to some older graphics chipsets. Over the last few weeks our team has acquired a number of older devices, which have allowed us to better understand how their drivers are misbehaving and work around these limitations.

Today’s release addresses a number of hardware releases, along with a few other bugs. The full list of changes is below, and Build 528 is rolling out now!

Thanks everyone!

The Team At Roon Labs
