Theme Updates; Invalidate the cache when themes change

Reported by: DD32 Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.8
Component: Administration Keywords: needs-patch

Right now, The only method for a theme update to occur, Is a timeout.

Ideally, It would be better to invalidate the cache upon the themes changing as well, Possibly the present calls to get_themes() could be utilised somehow to invalidate it when things change..

"Themes changing" didnt mean changing themes, I meant version numbers changing or the list of themes being different.

-1 to the patch Denis added, However, I agree that its not an important ticket for 2.8.
