I just listened to the Stephan Livera podcast with Thomas Voegtlin of Electrum wallet and they’ll add LN real soon. Great podcast btw, that Thomas is a real Bitcoiner.
I only started using Electrum recently when running my first full node with Electrum Personal Server on it and the Electrum wallet on my main pc, so I am really excited by that news. It seems like the best option if you use hardware wallets like me, and you want the Ledger, Trezor etc to use your own node to validate.
Electrum is a fantastic wallet with extensive functionality. You should get in the habit of verifying PGP signatures of your downloads and be aware of potential phishing/malware versions before installing new software.
The LN version of Electrum unfortunately will not work with Electrum Personal Server for opening channels. There is some conversation here indicating that users who wish to utilize their own node will have to use an Electrum Server such as ElectRS or ElectrumX. https://twitter.com/BTCxZelko/status/1195972980225953792
