You should never copy new over old. Given the many files and modes that
make up StrongED it's unlikely that the internal structure remains the
same over time. If you drop new over old the result may be orphaned
files/directories or in worst case a non-working StrongED.

Example: the AppBasic mode included with 4.70a13 comes with an updated
Complete add-on that has had its internals reorganised to tidy it up and
to prepare for future changes. If you copy new over old then a number of
files would be left in there that are no longer needed which may result
in confusion later on.

To update to 4.70a13:

 - Rename/move 4.70a12 and put 4.70a13 in its place.
 - Copy modes not already present in 4.70a13 from 4.70a12
 - If running, quit StrongED and start 4.70a13
