Jaxx Development Update: version 1.3.8 released on all platforms

Earlier this morning Jaxx v1.3.8 went live on Android, Chrome, Windows, Mac, and Linux. The update to our iOS client has been sent to Apple for their approval. This release includes new features and a few bug fixes of note. Be sure you have your 12-word backup phrase written down before you update Jaxx. New features you’ll find in Jaxx include:

  • ETH Gas Limit Control: you now have more flexibility setting ETH transaction gas limit maximums and minimums. This feature is particularly helpful when participating in ICOs.
  • Paper Wallet: simple functionality has been included to allow you to transfer paper wallets into Jaxx.
  • Pricing Data: we’ve updated the way we manage coin and token prices to be faster and more frequent.

The Jaxx 1.3.8 release includes fixes to a handful of bugs in earlier releases. Those updates include:

  • BTC History: transaction histories for BTC wallets display correct balances.
  • ETC Spendable: spendable balance is checked before allowing a send-transaction. attempt. This forces confirmation available funds match the send request.
  • ETH Balances: ETH wallets now show accurate balances. The bug causing balances to display the actual value divided by 10 has been resolved.
  • ERC20 Spendable:  spendable balance is checked and verified before attempting a send transaction for all ERC20 tokens.
  • ShapeShift Unavailable Message: new pop-up notice in Jaxx on tokens Shapeshift has made “temporarily unavailable” in their service.

Devices running Android OS versions that predate Lollipop (5.1) do not have the ability to handle the latest version of our Jaxx Wallet.

Jaxx Development Update for December 1st 2017

Jaxx iOS

The Jaxx development team here at Decentral Inc. has been busy this Fall. We’re proud of our work offering our application across eight platforms and supporting dozens of exciting blockchain projects. We’ve made significant progress on our mission to deliver the best HD wallet in the world.

Infrastructure: We’ve increased and improved the infrastructure we use to operate nodes on the variety of blockchains we support. This added capacity makes Jaxx faster and more reliable than ever. We’ll continue rolling out new infrastructure (servers and systems) in December as expand to meet & exceed demand for Jaxx wallets.

Security Improvements and User Education: We’ve implemented an optional pin code to more strongly protect our user’s assets. This pin secures access in Jaxx to the screens that display the 12-word Masterseed “backup phrase” (BIP39). Users new to the world of blockchain and cryptocurrencies often do not understand the power of the 12-word Masterseed structure we use in Jaxx. We never hold or control our user’s assets; those assets remain on their respective blockchains and the Masterseed is a powerful tool for controlling them. Adding pin functionality has been a great way to help new users understand how to use their Masterseed to pair their wallets across devices and to understand the Masterseed should be backed-up.

Asset Swapping with Shapeshift: We’ve made UI changes to make the swapping of tokens easier and more intuitive. Control of gas prices and clear confirmations have helped make Shapeshifting assets inside Jaxx easy.
