No - 2008 to 2011 is not supported.

The newcore drone protocol was rewritten to be forward-flexible in ways the original drone never was - the original code was thrown together as a proof of concept more or less, and then persisted. Properly written drones and clients for the new protocol should always be able to negotiate at least some level of compatibility.

You'll need to bring your drone client up to a more recent version (and you might as well go to the latest release, then).
