Why is Episerver calling home to get the current Episerver version when rendering non admin pages?

Hi Adam, not direcctly answering your question but you are aware why that version.json is needed - see this older forum thread where Dmytro Duk from Episerver answers another question while explaining the need for that. Also this Episerver support article.

I assume your screen shot is from Stackify Prefix(?), if you keep reloading that page will it on each request download the version.json?

Thanks for replying.  It seems to happen when I edit a template on dev, on production I think I had it run around 100 times a week in the last 3 weeks.  Looking at that support article, it talks about version.js but then links to a blog that talks about 2 other js files.  I wouldn't mind but the page in question is a front end facing webpage and does not contain find queries so I am a little confused why it is slowing down my page requests.  If it was on the admin view, it would make sense. We are a couple of versions behind on Find so maybe it is fixed in a later version.
