Roon 1.8 Build 884 – Detail improvements

After the Roon 1.8 Fall 2021 release was published a few days ago, Roon Labs LLC. sends a small, but in some cases quite essential update. Roon 1.8 Build 884 is now available.

The now published Roon 1.8 Build 884 follows the last big update that Roon Labs LLC. published only a few days ago in the form of the Roon 1.8 Fall 2021 Release. This was specifically Roon 1.8 Build 880.

With the new update Roon 1.8 Build 884, which is now available, a few errors that crept in with Roon 1.8 Build 880 are to be eliminated.

Roon 1.8 Build 884 – Some bug fixes

So Roon 1.8 Build 884 is not really a major update, but ultimately a service release that does not bring any new features.

“This build fixes several issues that have arisen since last week’s release, but were not encountered during our extensive internal QA process, nor by the hundreds of alpha or beta testers who tested this build prior to release. While some of these issues only occur under very specific (and rare) conditions, others should never have seen the light of day. We are investigating how this happened so we can ensure it doesn’t happen again.”

So it could happen that Roon 1.8 build 880 could not load audio zones or some albums. This is supposed to be fixed with Roon 1.8 Build 884. A particularly problematic issue of the last update concerns media containing invalid Unicode characters, which can cause problems when loading Roon’s database.

If you had problems loading the library, Roon Labs LLC. recommends applying the new update immediately and trying again with the new build. It fixes several issues in this area.

Getting to the point

Actually, it is obvious that a major update is followed by one or two smaller ones that fix any bugs that only show up in the practical use of a new version by many users. This time, however, Roon Labs LLC. has made a few major mistakes that should have been noticed. However, now everything should run smoothly with the new Roon 1.8 Build 884.
