No answer is not "no"

Email received today:

In your blog this fall you gave props to a guy who requeried you, having not heard back from you in a timely fashion. It inspired me requery an agent whom I knew had a reputation for being prompt with the replies. This agent is now representing my YA book.
Thank you.

Yea! You're very welcome.

Now why in the world would one need to requery? Hmm... oh, yeah... that's right. Life happens.

I had one agent that requested a partial in August and has not replied since then. Since then, I have finished another novel that I think is better. Should I patiently wait on an answer on the first, or send the last novel in a new query?
