Roon 2.0 Build 1179 and ARC Build 103 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

We have some updates to Roon and ARC which we wanted to get out to all of you before the weekend. Please update your devices at your convenience and let us know if you run into any issues.

This release includes some minor improvements to the Wikipedia functionality in Roon, but the major news is that Wikipedia data is now available in ARC as well! If you’re an ARC user please check our work here and help us ensure that we’re providing the best possible user experience.

ARC’s CarPlay implementation has been updated to allow for launching ARC via the vehicle’s interface. Please be sure to test the behavior of ARC’s CarPlay functionality by launching the app via the vehicle as well as directly on the phone itself.

As always, if something seems amiss please don’t hesitate to create a report in the Early Access section of Community.

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