There's always new software coming out, but old questions aren't necessarily revisited. I can find a question which addresses exactly the same use case as mine and has an bountied answer, but the question and the answer are 2.5 years old and I wonder whether people would have other recommendations if the question had been posted today.
On most Stack Exchange sites, if I posted the same question then I would expect it to be closed as a duplicate. On the site where I participate most actively the advice would be to promote the old question in chat or to bounty it.
To give three phrasings of the same question: does the Software Recommendations policy on duplicates differ from the general rule? Is "More than two years have passed" sufficient to make a question not be a duplicate of an earlier one? What is the approved way to ask for new recommendations on an old question?
