Kodi v17 Mythtv backend database version

I am running Kodi v16 with a mythtv backend version 0.28 using DB schema version 1344 on Ubuntu. Will I be able to upgrade to Kodi v17 without upgrading the backend. Does upgrading Kodi also update the MythTV pvr to a newer version which needs a newer database schema?

For queries about addons you are much better served by the Kodi forum http://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=27 or by contacting the add-on developer directly.
