I've seen those problems before with upgrades and in my opinion asking
all users to clear their browser cache after every upgrade should be
avoided.

As far as I understand the problem, the SOGo web resources are cached
by the browser and when a new version is installed the browser has no
way of knowing it has to load the web resources again. One way to fix
this is to put the version somewhere in the path, so that on upgrade
the web resources have a different path and the browser will fetch the
new files.

Is there anyone who has already looked more into this issue? Is there
already an open bug about this that I missed?


Kind regards,

Jeroen Dekkers
