Hi!

Currently, E4 provides a way to persist the workspace between each user sessions.

Unfortunately, when something in the Model changes in a new version of the application, it might not be reflected in the UI since the model is loaded from the last session.

This can create a situation where, for example, you add a menu item, publish your application and after the update process, your user doesn't see the item. He/She must then manually clear the workspace.

The following Bugzilla asks that E4 provides a way to clear the persisted state at some points, for example when the application is updating to a new version.

I think it's an important feature that is missing from E4, so please vote! Smile
