So what do you suggest? I searched for the --with-fbsecure-db option
in the fb 2.5 version, and the 2.5 version has this option too. So I
think I can make the archive file before updating the "update to fb 3
I say this, because it may be a solution for the older odb files if
there would be a Libreoffice version, where LO saves database as an
archive file, but with fb 2.5. And fb 3.0 should be used in a LO
version after that. Is that a possible way?

Or there should be two version of firebird at the same time? Than
whenever a user opens an old database we check the database version
and we can do the backup-restore thing to update it.
