Roon 2.0 Build 1208 and ARC Build 142 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

This week’s release is primarily focused on bugfixes and improvements while the team continues to work on some larger projects. The most notable change corrects a bug in which users might not get notified if their Roon database backup encountered a problem.

Another change, which is purely cosmetic, is that we’ve incremented the ARC iOS version number significantly to match that of Android. This is a side-effect of how the Play Store handles versioning and was only done to make the versions match between iOS and Android. The updated version number on iOS is 1.0.32 and don’t worry, you haven’t missed 22 updates!

As always please let us know if you run into any issues.

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