Usually if they change something as important as the layout of the configuration files then they will have to go to a complete new version. Which usually means updating the major version number. Usually version numbers are labelled major.minor.patch. If it's just a patch then it's usually compatible. So I don't think you'll have any problems with your old configuration files.
