Long running process and process upgrade

I've seen similar topics but none answered my question.
My question is : Is there a way to upgrade a process and make currently running instances benefit from it?

A short example to illustrate:
Let's say that my process was deployed several months ago. Many instances are currently running.
I now want to change the process and add a mandatory step for each one, including already started processes as the rule changed and every user has to conform, even if he started his process before the change.
I do not want to ask all users to start a new process.

I saw the following in another post:
With long running processes deploying a new process definition will not change anything.
The long running process will just keep running in the old process definition.

But is this a default behaviour that can be changed by setting any attribute?
