The new stats counters were added in 9.5.0.  They're in all currently-
supported releases; the old format is fully deprecated now.

Incidentally, that release also introduced an http statistics channel
and XML stats reporting, which might be of interest to your monitoring
software.  (Note, though, in 9.9.3 we're going to introduce a newer
better XML schema for statistics as a compile-time option, and it'll
be standard in 9.10, so if they wanted to write code to parse our XML,
they might want to know there'll be a few different schema versions in
the field soon.)
