Update of old apps

I agree with Richmond.  In my experience, it is wise to use the version the
app was originally coded in.  Too many times when I've used the latest,
everything looks great until the customer comes across that one thing,
rarely used, that no longer works because you need to code it just slightly
different in the new version.
