Now if Bridge comes with some new JavaScripts they aren't automatically updated and browser caches keep the old ones until they will be cleaned up somehow. I am not sure whether the development Django web server or/and Apache are responsible for this.

In most browsers you can update the page with its cache by "Ctrl+F5" (you should do it for all pages with saved cache).

The server can influence on static files caching, but I don't recommend it - I'm not going to change javascripts too often, and caching decreases page loading time.

I still suppose that the really production server, which Bridge is, has to update caches like this is done by other well known servers. Actually everybody are bothered with this issue very much. For instance, I completely switched of caches, Ilja restarts the whole web-browser when he meets unexpected things in Bridge. This does take much time after all. The only place where this issue doesn't hit is automatically deployed instances or containers, but they aren't intended to be updated at all in the most cases.

It turned out that there is a nice solution for this issue. Let's implement it, since scripts are updated often that can cause unpleasant consequences.
