MEF, Silverlight, and Browser cached files/updating xaps

Feb 27, 2013 at 7:07 PM
I read that the DeploymentCatalog does not support Silverlight cached assemblies. (Otherwise known as TPEs). This means that DeploymentCatalog will not download referenced assemblies that are packaged with the Silverlight caching infrastructure (.extmap).

I am assuming that this restriction does not apply to browser cached files. Is this correct?

If the xap on the server is updated, will the DeploymentCatalog/Browser be able to automatically detect this and download the latest version from the server? If not, how can this be addressed.
