Roon 1.8 (Build 970) is Live!

Hi all,

Over the last few months, we’ve moved to a more regular release schedule, with updates going live roughly every two weeks.

During that time we’ve closed out a huge number of issues based on feedback from the community, but we’ve been tracking a pair of new issues since our most recent release – one related to a memory leak and one related to recent Remote/Core connectivity changes.

We believe these issues have caused performance degradation for many Roon users over the last two weeks, and we believe today’s release addresses both of these issues.

This week’s release also addresses crashes reported when navigating to the settings screen, inactive play buttons on certain TIDAL / Qobuz playlists, and missing search results when Roon is running on some Windows machines. Please install this update at your earliest convenience and be sure to let us know if you encounter any issues.

As always, we thank you for your continued support.
