The format is not supposed to change, except new fields may be added
to the end of the report. There is the CSV mode (-c option) which
should make it easier for parsing.

You can write your own client. The protocol is quite simple. collectd
does that for instance.

The plan is to provide a library, which chronyc would be using, but
unfortunately there wasn't time to do that yet.
