Is parseHash now working with HS256?



after login to my Client+API and being redirected back, I’ve tried to call parseHash() on my location.href and it worked. It decoded my HS256 signed token. Of course I can’t trust its signature (but my API server does it) but I got it parsed correctly, which is really useful. Documentation says that parseHash only works with RS256 signed tokens. Did something change recently?


Also, it seems renewAuth() is working too…


I would also like the answer to this. I want to use HS256, and I am really confused why the documentation says parseHash requires RS256.
