I don't think it makes sense to criticize Rockstar for updating GTA V, 4 years after PC release, because a mod author doesn't update their mod fast enough. Most people outside of the modding community think it's awesome Rockstar is still updating this game. The only reason it's a problem for the modding community is because the modding community isn't improving itself to adapt to the "problem" of updates.
If you want to prevent this from happening in the future, disable automatic updates for GTA V in Steam, then use GTAVLauncherBypass so you can open GTA V without it updating. Make sure to open GTA5.exe instead of opening GTA V through Steam.
