Electrum 4.0 Relase notes. Not released yet. ETA June 2020

# Release 4.0 - (not released yet. ETA June 2020) * Lightning Network support (experimental) - Our implementation of Lightning relies on Electrum servers to query channel states. Since servers can lie about the state of a channel, users should either use a server that they trust, or setup a private watchtower (see below).

Backups can also be exported for each channel (e.g. via QR code), and imported in another wallet. Since backups are encrypted with a key derived from the wallet's xpub, they can only be imported into another instance of the same wallet, or a watch-only version of it. The force-close is not triggered automatically when the backup is ...
