Held off upgrading to 1.8 until today, and will a bit of trepidation due to reading this forum, I bravely hit the update button. What I found is a slightly different version of 1.7. The layout has some minor changes, more a step sideways than anything. I miss that each track doesn’t declare which playlist it is in (C’mon Roon guys, fix that!), and scrolling through my tags hung a couple of times requiring a relaunch. But in every other regard things functioned normally. The new layout was is easy to discern and navigate. I’m neither thrilled with1.8 nor disappointed in it. Seems like mostly same 'ol same 'ol to me, which is ultimately a good thing.
I can’t imagine the pressure Roon must be under to come up with something new in these major updates. Yet how far can this actually be taken? How much more there is there?
In any case, thanks to all who dove in early and bore the brunt of the pain so that someone like me can waltz in like Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton and gleefully declare, what did I miss?
on the album page (not on the artist page, not in My Library > Tracks)
and only on the condition that it is a library version that you have in your playlist. It is - unfortunately - perfectly possible to have a track in your library and the exact same track in a playlist without the last one being considered as “the library version” - and without any easy way to make that track in your playlist “the library version”.
I am new here, so I have no idea if this was different before 1.8
