The main difference I can see is that the new version flashlight mode has a more diffuse spot and the sides appear to illuminate more than the old version flashlight mode. The older version seems to maintain its spot for a longer distance outside, but either should work fairly well if you're just trying to light the path in front of you. I didn't see too much difference between the two in lantern mode but I didn't take them both out for extended outdoor experience. According to the description on amazon, the new version claims to have notable longer run time compared to the older version, but I didn't due a full run time test. If more light power is needed for distance sight at night, I think it would probably be better to look for some other solution than a AAA battery powered camp light. I think this product does what it intends to do well.
Since I had both in my possession for a time, I decided to take some pics of both of them. I first fully charged some eneloop AAA batteries to make sure both lights had equal power. My old version had not been used much at all yet so any LED life degradation should be negligible. Attached are six pics of high/mid/low of both flashlight and lantern mode from inside a room at night. The flashlights are at approx three feet from the wall spot target. The lantern mode is from near the wall. The old is on the left and the new is on the right in each image. The pics were taken with the "auto" mode setting on the camera so there may be some camera auto-adjustment of the light effect, but hopefully they are good enough to help evaluate the difference between the two versions since any camera effect would apply to both new/old at the same time.
Just bought my third one having given the last two to admiring friends.
