I am building a LoRaWAN enabled sensor using a PIC1618446 8-bit microcontroller and a SX1276 based LoRa Module. I found that Microchip has a MCC LoRaWAN library for helping with this task. However, Microchip's library seems to have not been updated since December 2016 and lists support only for very old PIC 8-bit microcontrollers listed in the 4th page of http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/release_notes_lorawan_v01.10.00_beta.pdf (54 of them).

I would like to know if I would be able to use the library with the newer PIC16F18446 microcontroller.

    \$\begingroup\$ Your previous question electronics.stackexchange.com/questions/470425/… makes it unclear if you are trying to do LoRa or LoRaWAN. The difference between those two terms is substantially greater than that of porting an implementation for one MCU to another. Most target dependence is in the area of SPI communication, reading status outputs from the radio chip, and (for a real usage) entering a low power sleep mode and (at least for LoRaWAN) waking up at the precise time to receive a downlink reply. \$\endgroup\$ – Chris Stratton Dec 9 '19 at 17:21
