This raises the general question of 'can saved serialised (stored to 
disk) versions of Bioconductor objects be used across different versions 
of the software'?

The general answer is "no", since anything else would be impractical. In 
particular, package authors may provide facilities for that (e.g. via 
providing a method for the 'updateObject' function in BiocGenerics).

In general, thus, it is good practice to keep the input data in a 
sufficiently persistent format (e.g. text files) and the code to create 
the objects.

Others might have further views on this...

Best wishes
