SuperPWA 1.9 is Ready for Chrome Mini-infobar

Chrome 68 is being rolled out as we speak and for PWA lovers like yourself, the biggest noticeable change would be the switch from the Add to Home Screen banner to the mini-infobar.

Here is the old A2HS banner and the new mini-infobar, side by side.

Chrome A2HS vs Mini Info-bar

Its cleaner, less obstructive and does the job well. SuperPWA 1.9 is tested on Chrome 68 and its all good!

Offline Page Now Supports Images

As you know, in SuperPWA you can set an Offline Page from the settings and this page will be displayed to the user if the user is offline and the requested page is not available in the offline cache.

Until now, only the offline page content was cached during service worker installation, but starting with this release, you can add images to the offline page and SuperPWA will cache them for offline use.

Note: If the offline page is already set and you just added an image, please remember to regenerate the service worker (by deactivating and reactivating SuperPWA).
