.152 isn't that
outdated. It was the previous recommended Build I think. Also, to the OP, just because a mod says it requires a certain version doesn't always mean that it's exclusively compatible with said version. This normally only true if it installs something over Forge. Which, if it simply goes into the mod folder, it doesn't.
in short, I'd suggest first trying the current Recommended Build. Your mods should work just fine with it as well, and if not, then you could try the version you're looking for.Here are the links.
