I would say it's backwards compatible. The new version still provides
'libarchive.so.13()(64bit)', and also adds addititional functions, but
does not change anything wrt/ the existing interface, so it should be
drop-in compatible (and even more so, maintained, which is why I used the
package from openSUSE:Leap:15.0:Update for the branch).
