I have a tenth of project base on Firebird as the database server and I actually use Firebird 2.5 Server version.

I don't want to update to Firebird 3.0 because I don't want my clients to update.

What happens if I update LO to 6.1 with its Firebird 3.0?

Nothing happens. LibreOffice doesn't install a server on your box. It includes a single DLL in its program directory, which is used when LibreOffice uses its own embedded database function. No system (re)configuration related to Firebird happens.

So it's a Firebird embedded. Thanks a lot for this useful information.
