Sort of, but not quite. The stack file format doesn't matter; the way 
the settings are stored is related to the distribution and the way its 
standalone builder works. In Rev 2.7, the SB was rewritten to store 
standalone settings as custom properties. I routinely save stacks in 
legacy format and they still retain their custom property standalone 
settings. If users will be running stacks in Rev 2.6.1 then you need to 
provide the right support files.
