I suppose you could add an hidden field to the page containing a 'version'
On page load make an ajax request to your server for the current version and if different run
location.reload(true); // same as an hard refresh
Thanks for posting the response..
Question within the SPA where do you thing a good place to insert the code:
Also when you refer to "location" not sure what does.
