      Description

      Because Tapestry now encourages the client browser to cache classpath assets (including tapestry.js, etc.) it is important that when upgrading from one snapshot to another, the browser cache be cleared. It is also possible, in FF, to use shift-reload to force a reload of everything on the page. Otherwise, Taepestry components will references JavaScript functions that do not exist, since the browser is holding on to the older version of the tapestry.js file (because the version number does not change between snapshots).
