The usage of the component is simple, You need to wrap your application on if, the higher level better, the bet scenario its to wrap your entire app inside it.
|children||react node||true||A react node as children to be rendered can be your app component|
|version||string||true||null||Current version depending on your app, recommended to use process.env|
|latestVersion||string||true||null||Latest available version in string, the fetch should be managed in the host app, you need to pass the raw version string|

|renderHotUpdate||function||true||Function that returns a react node, it's executed when te manager detects a new update on run time, this way you can create your own notification and styles|
|debug||boolean||false||If debug is true version control will mount some dev enhancers see the dedicated section DEV-ENHANCERS|
|enabled||boolean||false||The module only works if it's enabled, otherwise will only render the children, this can be use for example to test it in determined environments|
The method renderHotUpdate will receive an argument with type function, this function when executed will force the reload of the page ignoring cache, you can assign this action to a button, so when you click it, the page will start reload.
import VersionControl from 'react-version-control';<VersionControl=='currentVersion'=><Children /></VersionControl>
If you initialize the module with in debug mode this will mount two methods under window. The module can find updates in two different moments, at the mount point, and at run time.

- Run time
The method setHotUpdate will force the component to execute the renderUpdateContent method passed by props.
- Add custom time between check possibility.
- Unit Test and demo test.
- Ensure that the version manager does not get stucked in a update loop caused by a app misconfiguration
