My understanding is that the latest Roon update now does MQA.

Joel, it’s over to you...

What did you read that led you to that conclusion?

"Does" and "brings" are not the same grin

The facts are clear in the Roon 1.4 Release Notes (already posted)

spinaltap,

What this means is that Roon will deliver a bit perfect MQA stream to an iOS device, but will not perform any of the MQA "unfolds." That is still left to the recipient device (DAC) in the Roon world. The new thing here is that Roon allows an iOS device to be a recipient (which was not possible prior to 1.4).

Still, pretty great.

Hopefully MQA decode won't be too long. In the meantime, I'm loving the new volume control slider.

We were first told about "coming soon" back in Jan 2016. Was supposed to have been added as part of an update to 1.3. Can't say I'm particularly hopeful.

You may find the second half of this post relevant.

Are you able to say whether there will be a specific 'MQA update version' or that we'll have to wait for Roon 1.5?

We will deliver the MQA update as soon as we can. Whether it's called 1.5, who knows... In general, we're attempting to make more frequent smaller releases, because these are much more manageable from a development and test perspective.
