When a newer version of an extension (or theme) you are using is released, what is the standard way to update/upgrade a site with it? (assuming that the extension/theme uses Magento Connect)
Can I just install the newer version overwriting previous files?
Or should I first uninstall the previous version, then install the new one?
Does it make a difference if the installation is via Extension Key or Package File?
I've found a lot of information about upgrading Magento itself, but virtually nothing about extensions/themes!
