Roon 2.0 Build 1197 and ARC Build 132 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

The primary focus for this release is Android Auto, but there are a few bugfixes in Roon which could use some testing attention. The most notable fixes a regression in which some streamed content (primarily from Qobuz) was not playing gaplessly. If you are a Qobuz user and have experienced gapless playback issues then please test and let us know if the problem has been corrected.

For those of you who are testing Android Auto, please keep the feedback coming and let us know how stability is feeling.

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