Hi Everyone,

We are continuing to focus on improving the overall Roon user experience through stability improvements and performance enhancements. This week’s release corrects a number of long-standing bugs which, all together, have had a wide-ranging impact across our entire user base.

In addition to our ongoing stability improvements, we are also pleased to release a number of enhancements to Roon’s search mechanism which will have a direct impact on the quality of instant search results. We have also made a number of changes throughout Roon’s search infrastructure which should result in performance gains for all search queries.

As always we thank you for your continued support.
