WebVTT and live HLS

I saw on previous questions that WebVTT is not supported for live HLS. However, the most recent comment I found was from Aug 2015.
I'd like to know if it's supported now, and if not, if there's any plan to support it in the near future.

In-Manifest VTT captions are supported for Live HLS on desktop and iOS. Are you having any particular issues?

You can check out our media reference here for a compatibility chart:

Hi, George. Thank you for your answer.

I apologize, I was using an older version (7.6.1) which my team downloaded a couple months ago, and I wasn't seeing the captions. I tried using the latest version (7.9.3) and now I see them.

Thank you very much for your help!
