What's New in Version 1.2.11
Soooo, I've been waiting for this update and I don't see anything related to the security 'scare' that seemed to be an issue. Although, it was said that the issue was "user based" and had nothing to do with the Jaxx Wallet. I thought they had agreed to make the PIN longer or something; however, I don't see it noted in the update, BUT, it could be something there..
Let me know if you find some difference in the security of the updated version and I will let you know if I notice anything going forward.
I really have an attachment to Jaxx for some reason. Hope it doesn't cost me dearly like most attachments DO.. :-)
