I'm still seeing the beta tab icon for the Main site...
Why?
(I see the new design on the Meta site)

  • are you still seeing the old icon? – Jin Jan 24 '13 at 20:37
  • yup, still the Beta icon. – Siddhartha Jan 25 '13 at 7:19

    I'm marking this as status-completed since it's just matter of time for the old image to be un-cached. Most people are seeing the new one by now. – Jin Jan 25 '13 at 17:20

See this post-launch post. You'll need to do a hard refresh (F5) of the page, or manually refresh the favicons, as described in the post.

  • But I never opened the site while it was in beta. Today is the first time I'm opening it... – Siddhartha Jan 23 '13 at 17:11
  • @Siddhartha - weird. But try pressing Ctrl+Shift+R to force a reload, or F5. See if it goes away? – Mark Mayo Jan 23 '13 at 17:16
  • @MarkMayo - I'm on a Mac, so it's Command+Shift+R for me, still, it didn't work... – Siddhartha Jan 23 '13 at 17:18
  • @Siddhartha well that's just weird! Er...clear cache? What happens if you ... er, on a PC you'd right click and view image, so that just the image is showing, and then force a reload on that, then go back? – Mark Mayo Jan 23 '13 at 17:24
  • @Siddhartha: Did you just refresh the page or did you follow the post mindcorrosive linked which gives instructions on how to refresh the logos individually? I had to do it the second way myself. – hippietrail Jan 23 '13 at 20:34
  • @Siddhartha you must be behind a proxy, you are getting the icon from the proxy cache.. you can not do anything about it, just wait until the proxy cache recycles then you will get the new icon. – Nean Der Thal Jan 23 '13 at 21:49

I'm still seeing the Beta apple-touch-icon.png as well. But I confirmed the image file I checked in is the new one. After talking to our dev, he said it's cached on the server side by our CDN. A lot people are seeing the new one already. I think it's just matter of time when the new icon propagates completely.
