Does every new flash player support files made for all previous version of Flash player?

Yes, they are always backwards-compatible (or at least have been so far). Flash Player 10 can still play animations made in Flash 2.

Should we upgrade Flash player always upon new release?

Absolutely. You get new features, better performance, added security, etc. There are no drawbacks that I can think of. What do you have to lose?

The security is the thing really. Really that's the reason you would upgrade. –  chiggsy Jul 17 '11 at 1:23
