Yes, they may not work if they're more than 1 version appart. Many
bugfixes require backwards incompatable changes to the protocol. We
leave compatability code in there for one revision cycle, so people have
time to upgrade, then we remove it. After 1.0, we will have more strict
rules about that sort of thing, but for now it's 1 major revision worth
of compatability is all that is certain to work.
