I'd suggest testing with the beta versions at least (And keeping in mind that even then, it may change in the final beta releases) if you dont have enough time to follow Core Dev.

Unless you're only using WordPress API functions, you cannot be sure that the plugin will be forward compatible, Theres simply too many things which can change during development to maintain backwards compatibility with non-API functionality. WP Devs do their best to maintain that all API functionality stays backwards compatible with older releases, I dont think you can hope for more than that in any Product.
