Roon 1.8 (Build 943) is Live!

Hi Everyone,

The team is continuing its work to improve the Roon user experience and with that work comes another update.

With this release we have implemented support for input peripherals on iPadOS. Specifically, Roon now supports iPads equipped with the Magic Keyboard or with connected Bluetooth keyboards, mice, and/or trackpads. The most requested feature has been scrolling via trackpad gesture (which is now fully supported), but this update also includes changes which implement right-click via mouse or trackpad, as well as implementation of Roon’s keyboard shortcuts. An iPad with external input devices now matches the user experience of Roon on macOS. There have been a large number of requests for this feature and we are very excited to make it a reality.

Other changes are focused on continuing to refine Roon’s performance and stability. Notable changes include improving the TIDAL authentication refresh process which addresses a number of common playback errors as well as correcting a bug in which iOS zones would get stuck in the enabling state.

This release includes a number of housekeeping bugfixes and with that we are releasing an update to Roon Bridge. Please be sure to update any bridge devices you may have.

As always, we thank you for your continued support.

-The Team at Roon Labs
