    Default Deprecated use of manifest file (index.appcache) for offline apps

    I have an Alpha Anywhere V12 offline browser app which has been doing a great job for a client since 2015 when disconnected apps using LISTS first appeared. However, Chrome and other browser vendors have now been deprecating use of manifest files for some time in favour of ServiceWorker threads.

    Has anybody else run into this issue? My workaround for now is to use a fixed version 69 of the open source Chromium browser which is the last one to fully support manifest files.

    I presume the team at Alpha must be aware of this issue - do you have any suggestions / roadmap for support going forward?

    Any advice would be most welcome

    Thanks

    I wouldn't presume so. I would contact Alpha directly and ask.
