Roon 1.8 (Build 884) is Live!

Hi all,

As our team heads into the holidays, we have a few fixes we wanted to get out to everyone as soon as possible.

This build addresses several issues that have come up since last week’s release but which did not come up either during our extensive internal QA process or among the hundreds of alpha or beta testers that ran this build before launch. While some of these issues only occur under extremely specific (and uncommon) conditions, others should have never seen the light of day. We’re investigating how this happened, so we can ensure it does not occur again.

The issues addressed in this release can prevent Roon from loading your audio zones or some of your albums, and one particularly troublesome issue relates to media that contains invalid Unicode characters, which could cause problems when loading your database.

If you are having trouble loading your library, we suggest trying again with this build. It resolves multiple issues in this area.

From the whole Roon team, we wish everyone a happy and a healthy holiday season, and a great new year!

Thanks all!

The Team At Roon Labs
