SQL Server JDBC 6.5 Fix 10 issue

We recently saw the need to implement WM JDBC Fix 10 but it now seems like this Fix is not downward compatible. We had developed WM interface services that receive a bit data type result field back from a db call through the JDBC adapter service and this was converted into string data type (true/false) in our flow service. However, after implementing the fix it now appears that the result coming back from the JDBC service is returned as a boolean data type (1/0). Are we missing something here or is the new adapter version just not downward compatible and everyone else experiencing the same issue? If so, I am interested in hearing what the resolution is.
