Major improvements include:
- iOS devices can now be Roon end points / audio zones. Previously this was limited to Android devices (in the mobile device category) due to an Apple restriction. The new iOS zones work like any other full featured zone, with support for the headphone output or a connected DAC.
- Roon Radio version 2.0 is in this release. Roon Radio is what many people enjoy after an album concludes or a playlist is finished. In this version Roon will use information such as your play history and metadata to build a radio "station" even more to your liking. Support for local AND Tidal tracks added to the library is also available in RR 2.0. Watch for the next phase of RR to get full Tidal access in Roon Radio.
- I remember talking to Danny at Roon at CEDIA in San Diego (September, 2017) where he mentioned some major interface adjustments and improvements. Word on the street Roon 1.4 will have many interface updates. I'm looking forward to digging in.
Here are the official release notes: Version 1.4
Here's the new Zone selection area, rather than a popup, it slides over from the side.
I like the customization of play options.
