I’ve been using the official desktop wallet so far. The git repo hasn’t seen any commits for a month now, so I assume it doesn’t support mnemonics yet. Which wallet should I use to upgrade to the new key derivation scheme? Also, how long do I have before I need to upgrade, i.e. will support for upgrading from a root entropy account be dropped at some point?

Nevermind, seems the latest desktop wallet (0.3.0) does support mnemonics, apparently the feature is significantly older than the announcement.
