I can only answer for git, and I found the following in the commit message:
When creating a new git repository with "git init" or "git clone",
"core.precomposedunicode" will be set "false".

The user needs to activate this feature manually.
So git is backwards compatible with older version of git, as log as
core.precomposeunicode is false (or not set at all)
