Since Yahoo is slowly killing its discussion lists, some of the Firebird “official” discussion lists are being moved to GoogleGroups.
Firebird-support seems to be the first one:
Hello Firebird-support members,
The firebird-support list is moving to Google Groups. The new location is https://groups.google.com/d/forum/firebird-support
Unfortunately we cannot migrate the current Yahoo! subscribers, and you will need to resubscribe yourself, in one of two ways:
(1) If you have a Google account, log in to Google, go to the group’s home page https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/firebird-support;context-place=overview), Click the link labelled ‘Join this group’ and follow instructions there.
(2) Without a Google account, you can apply to join by emailing this address using the email account you want to use for communicating with the group:
You should receive a confirmation email. Respond as directed to complete. (this does not require a Google account).
For posting to the list you can use firstname.lastname@example.org
Note, if you are subscribed to more than one Firebird-related Yahoo! group, your will need to go trough a similar process for each of your groups.Helen Borrie for Firebird Project

The Document Foundation announces the availability of LibreOffice 6.4.3, the 3rd minor release of the LibreOffice 6.4 family, targeted at technology enthusiasts and power users. LibreOffice 6.4.3 includes several bug fixes and improvements to document compatibility.
Fixed a problem, which was present in all previous releases of IBProvider — BLOB access objects did not block the data source and allowed it to return to the connection pool.
In the new assembly, BLOB field objects block parent objects (including the data source) in memory and do not allow the connection pool to reuse the data source.
Kind Regards, IBProvider Team.
