It is noticed that LibreOffice got releases frequently, I would like to know if these different releases affect the "format" of a *.xls file saved by LibreOffice Cals?

As I will develop a program that will read the data from a *.xls worksheet template created by LibreOffice Cals, I just would like to know if there are tiny differences in the format of *.xls documents saved by different releases of LibreOffice Cals. Any difference may affect the performance of the program.

.xls are not native, which means, you calc find its a foreign language, it translate it into native while processing and then translate it back if you still want .xls.
