his answer:

"Xdelta3 and xdelta1 use completely different file formats. I have 
considered an option to translate old xdelta1 patchfiles into current 
xdelta3 patchfiles, but bugfixes and release work keep taking priority."

I will repack xdelta1

As I already bumped xdelta to 3.x series
any problem if I create a new xdelta1 package ?
