IndexedDB Changes – SetVersion Is Out

Well, things are moving fast… We have now a new version for handling updating schema in IndexedDB. As you can see both MDN (mozilla) and Chrome/Chromium are aligned with the new way.

In case you wish to see a code that will work fine both on Chrome (that still need to update according to the spec on onupgrade) and Firefox you can check this example of jQuery mobile and indexedDB mobile app:
