Updated images don’t update properly

Arne 'Timwi' Heizmann

I just made several changes to an SVG file:

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Comparison_of_pyramids.svg

However, the system refuses to update the image. It is still displaying
the oldest version, which has been modified 9 times now.

This is a severe bug and will likely cause frustrated users to stop
contributing edits to image and/or encourage them to upload the edit
under a new filename, causing duplicates. When a new version is
uploaded, all caches must be cleared and all thumbnails regenerated when
needed.

Thanks!
Timwi

This is yet another incarnation of
<https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=28613>. It appears to
me that this bug appears much more frequently lately.

I'll see if I can poke people to put more priority into this.

Indeed. Just when I saw more and more people opening new sections on VP/help desk about this problem, and I was like 'why they won't read just one section above', it suddenly happened to me as well.<http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Polling_results_of_Matsu_Renaming.svg>
So, the only thing I can do to help is vote up the bug?

Best,
Benjamin Chen
