    Create the new post because the title of the post remains the same in Google search so i recommend to write a new article with new title.

    It really depends on the audience you have. If you have established a decent base of readers who actually take time to read your content, then I would go for updating the old post and dropping it on to the front page. People love it when old lists and guides get updated as it shows that you are serious and you care about what you do.

    If you are thinking purely about search engines, then a new one with completely unique content would do the trick, although an update to the older one may work just as well :)

    I would create a new post, but you can also link back to the old post if you want people to be able to see what has been changed more easily.
