Hopefully not! If the bytecode version changes (the two latest being 
3.15 and 3.8), the previous versions of the bytecode are always 
compatible, provided that the major version number does not change.

You have to recompile only if there is an incompatible change in the 
syntax, which should be claimed with a big warning, and should not occur 
in the same major version.
