Roon 2.0.16 is live!

Hello Everyone,

We’re thrilled to announce the latest Roon release with a slew of stability improvements. Hot on the heels of delivering Fluency, the team has taken a cycle to tighten up new product features and fix some long-standing bugs.

There are two flagship changes in this release:

Firstly and at long last, we’re releasing IPv6 network compatibility for ARC. This change should allow many users stranded by their internet service provider’s adaptation of the IPv6 address format to use ARC outside of their home WiFi. Please note that, much like port forwarding in the previous release of ARC, the expanded compatibility will function best on simple networks with standard configurations, and certain ISPs or router setups may still require additional steps or workarounds.

The second major change is an update of the development framework used by Roon and RoonServer on the Windows platform to Microsoft .NET 6. Please note that the .NET change should have no impact on the behavior or performance of Roon on Windows so if you notice anything out of the ordinary please let us know ASAP.

Otherwise, the most significant Roon updates address issues with Chromecast TV timing out and reverting to the screensaver after a short amount of time. We’ve also corrected a possible leak when navigating back and forth from the Album details page which ultimately led to delays in playback start.

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