We have just release an update (v5.3.5) for the LUX wallet!

This is not a mandatory upgrade, but it does bring with it a number of fixes and improvements. This update bundles together many fixes we have been working on and helps prepare us for the larger updates to come.

While this update is not mandatory (no hard fork involved), it fixes some client-side issues with Smart Contracts. If you are utilizing Smart Contracts or plan to do further testing of them, please download and use this update.

One visual improvement we’ve long wanted to release was a new Dark Mode theme for the LUX wallet, so we are excited to release that finally! Here is a complete list of all changes:
