I know it’s in early stages, but since the protocol has been reverse engineered, I hope this makes it to MoOde some day.

Hey I stumbled on this while I was drinking my coffee this morning.   It looks like Shariport-Sync has recently released an experimental build for Airplay 2 support so once they get all the bugs worked out it might make it's way into moOde.  I'm not an apple user and generally don't use multi-room audio either but I figured I'd share in case others are interested.

I just installed the dev revision of shairport-sync with airplay 2 support on the latest Moode Audio.
It's working nicely! I will test some days ?

The GUI settings are working also (the name, enable/disable, etc.)

I'm using a HifiBerry Amp2 & Raspberry Pi 3B+

You can easily follow the guide to build the last dev version of Shairport-Sync on git here
I didn't change anything else in Moode, using the last version.
For the moment I have to say that I'm really impressed, it's working reliably, with multiroom support & partial homekit integration (like telling Siri to play something in a certain zone = it works!)
It will be very interesting to have this feature in the next MoOde 7.4.0 release.
Based on the statement below from the Shairport-sync maintainer ut does not appear to be ready for production use. 

Code:
"This code is experimental and much of the normal functionality of Shairport Sync is broken. Please do not use it in situations where reliable service is expected."

Thanks by your information. I saw at the Github that the persons that are experimenting this new Airplay 2 version is having good results, particularly related to the YouTube integration.  Let's keep track of the progress of this Airplay 2 development in order to allow the  MoOde integration  when the reliability level has been achieved.

Thanks. QJA
