Roon 1.8 (Build 795) is Live!

Hi everyone!

We have a maintenance release going live today with a couple of bug fixes.

We’ve heard from some users about skipped tracks while playing TIDAL content. We’ve determined that this happens when the remote server at TIDAL, or some network infrastructure in between Roon and TIDAL, causes a connection to drop before the full track has been delivered.

We have modified Roon to retry more aggressively when these failures happen, and we believe that this will resolve the most issues of this kind.

We’ve also done some work to address crashes on certain Android devices, along with a handful of other issues.

The full list is below. Thanks everyone!
