Download Augur App v1.8.6

Augur App v1.8.5 and v1.8.6 were released since the last update and they included a number of goodies, including:

😜 Augur App will automatically detect stalled syncing and attempt to reconnect — this usually gets it out of the normal sticky situations.
🌳 For the die-hard of you running with the built-in light node, you can now see the logs from geth in your augur-app log.
💸 An updated geth light client from version 1.8.17 to 1.8.20, which contains several light client fixes.
🐪 Better retry handling was added for a smoother sync experience.
