Not sure what you mean by versions (versions of what?  Mumble?), but
according to the hpr main page 'Please set compression to the 31.8Kb/s
speex codec for compatibility (NOT the CELT codec), and use push to
talk.'  Bruce has a screenshot of the mumble 1.2.3 Configure -->
Settings --> Audio Input options, where you set the compression quality.
The screenshot is on the linuxbasix.com home page.

IIUC, you don't need to get the compression set at exactly 31.8, as long
as the mumble audio input options display that you'll be using speex.
IOW, setting the Kb/s to say, 30, is ok.
