Roon 2.0.1 and ARC 1.0.2 are live!

Hello Everyone,

The team has been hard at work on a number of fixes since the launch of Roon 2.0 and ARC.

Earlier this year the service that Roon used to display local concert data went through a number of changes which required Roon to disable the feature for some time. Since then we’ve been working with the data provider on a new service and are pleased to announce the return of Concerts data in Roon. This release focuses on replacing the functionality which was lost, but future releases will bring some refinements as well as new features.

We are very excited to be rolling out an offline mode for ARC which can be enabled via Settings. When engaged, ARC will neither send nor receive any data and you will be able to listen to any downloaded content.

We have also addressed a few issues surrounding Roon Radio and media transcoding failures in ARC. Furthermore, we have adjusted the port forwarding diagnostics page and no longer display public IP addresses.

A complete list of changes is available below.

Thank you for your continued support,
The Team at Roon Labs
