There may be some issues between versions but I've had success using three different versions of ROS at once (Hydro, Indigo, and Kinetic) and I had to do some work arounds (mainly for Hydro, which is pretty old) but everything worked pretty well. Other, than a "you should be ok, but there may be issues" I don't think there's too much that can be said except for try it out and see what happens.
