I see you released a new version of prototype.js. The updated file uses the same filename meaning that many users will not see the update due to the old file being cached in their browsers and the updated file has the same filename.
Many users just aren't technical enough to "flush the browser cache" when something on the site isn't looking or working quite right. The board software should be more user friendly since updates to these files are inevitable over time.

This patch they did today was an unusual case, I can't ever remember it being done before. Under normal circumstances, when these files are updated when you upgrade your board, the version number in these URLs will be different and the files will be redownloaded instead of used from the cache.
