Roon 2.0 Build 1257 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

We are continuing to refine the new localization features in preparation for release and today’s build includes the fix for one remaining major issue. As with all of the releases in this cycle, there is potential for unintended regressions so please let us know if you encounter any strange behavior regardless of your localization settings.

We are also continuing work on the Windows update issues and as with prior releases you will still need to install this update manually using the package downloaded from this link. Our current testing shows that this should be the last time that a manual install will be required.

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