I have a web app
Its pretty heavy in size, so caching is good, whenever we do a release we have to clear the browser cache to load the new version
I dont want to force loading of content everytime someone logs in, so i'm wondering what options i have

thinking purely in terms of ways it could work, i'm wondering if i could store a version number in cookies, and it would request version number when loading login page..... if its the same then use the cache, if not, then dont use the browser cache

is this even possible?
Whats the best way to do it?

You should be able to implement what you want using appCache.  While the intended purpose of appCache is to allow offline use of apps, it should work for this because it is basically a dated manifest of the app, and the server can trigger updates.
