Roon 1.8 Build 911 available

Another update, Roon 1.8 Build 911, is now available. It is primarily dedicated to performance optimizations and detail improvements and should also eliminate some bugs.

Roon 1.8 Build 911, another update of the software company Roon Labs LLC. is available within a very short time, which is once again dedicated to the performance optimization of the media management and hi-res audio multi-room streaming software.

The new update also includes some detail improvements and some bugs should be a thing of the past with this new version, as the software forge states in the corresponding explanations for the new release.

Significant performance optimization

Especially in the area of buffering, caching and fetching infrastructure of the streaming software solution Roon, the new, now available Roon 1.8 Build 911 should bring massive improvements, at least that’s the promise of Roon Labs LLC. It should be mentioned that this is not the first time that this topic has been addressed; the last update Roon 1.8 Build 903, which has only been available for a few days, was already dedicated to this area.

Faster scrolling through the media library was also on the agenda, but is now said to have been optimized once again with the new Roon 1.8 Build 911, especially around an optimization of the Graphical User Interface for Apple iOS devices.

Innovations around HQPlayer

As you know, Roon supports the HQPlayer solution from Jussi Laako and the software company Signalist since the beginning. With Roon 1.8 Build 911 the API has been updated to support HQPlayer 4.0 and higher and Roon now requires HQPlayer desktop version 4.16.2 or higher or HQPlayer embedded 4.29.3 or higher.

Numerous fixes

The release node around the new Roon 1.8 Build 911 lists a long list of improvements, which could lead to problems or even crashes of the software in some cases, ranging from the implementation of TIDAL to various functions like Daily Mixes to links in the media library as well as the use of Apple AirPlay.

Pricing and availability

The new Roon 1.8 Build 911 is available now for Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Windows 64-bit, Apple macOS, Linux and Roon OS platforms. The apps for Apple iOS and Google Android will also receive updates, whereas no update would be necessary for the Roon Bridge.

Getting to the point

Roon Labs LLC. has revamped its analytics infrastructure to provide much better insight into situations where Roon isn’t working as it should, the company said. The new Roon 1.8 Build 911 release now available, he said, is the first of many to include fixes for previously unreported issues that were causing problems for many Roon users. This lays the foundation to be able to react even faster and directly to problems in the future and thus offer a much better user experience for the majority of Roon users, according to the promise of the software forge Roon Labs LLC.
