According to the details of the new release shared by XUMM team in a blog post on Coil, the lots of changes made to improve the user experience of the app are the results of the considered feedback from users.
Improvements and Bugs Fixed
Among a number of improvements made to the XUMM wallet is the redesigned transaction detail page, where more information on transaction details is made visible to users, such as local date and time zone.
Also, the wallet now has a “discreet mode” to allow users to easily hide their account addresses and balances from showing whenever the app is launched.
As earlier mentioned, many bugs were fixed, but the notable one is the improvement made to the XRP Ledger connectivity.
According to the report, the new wallet beta has been released to a small group of developers for proper testing of the new version of XUMM. And it will be made available on App Store for users on 27th July 2020.
