A new repo qtum-electrum-new has been built to add qtum-related features to the latest code for Bitcoin electrum.
Your Electrum wallet uses a third-party server that can see all your Bitcoin addresses and transactions. And when you connect to it through Tor, the server doesn't know your real IP address. Since you only use one Bitcoin address once and never use it again, the server cannot link it to any other address group. When you spend the entire balance, there is no zero address where the information can be disclosed. Even with third-party servers, this setting can actually create a lot of privacy.
However, after electrum officials said in early 19th that some security mechanisms should be put in place to prevent this "update phishing", many users of Electrum are still in the old version.
