      Description

      We upgrade from 2.0.1 to 2.0.2, the Preview function in authoring didn't work, as Flash was calling the old calls to create a new lesson. Clearing the cache in the browser fixed the problem.

      We are assuming the problem is due to lams_authoring_library.swf not being updated when a new version is released. Looking at the url calls that come from Flash:

      http://localhost:8080/lams/lams_authoring_library.swf

      http://localhost:8080/lams/lams_authoring.swf?userID=5&serverURL=http://localhost:8080/lams/&build=2.0.2.200703211622&lang=en&country=AU&langDate=2007-03-19&theme=default&isMac=true&uniqueID=2000573662&actColour=true

      The library call doesn't have the build number on it.

      Change the library call in the preloader so that it include the build parameter. Hopefully this will trigger the library swf to download

        updated preloaders to append build no parameter to loaded library file to prevent loading a cached version of the library swf (i.e. lams_authoring_library.swf)
