Leica DNG with Lightroom 6, any disadvantages?

Going to start off with my crazy: I refused to pay the rent or tax to Adobe for the latest version, so I am stuck with the last perpetual licence of Lightroom, which is 6.14. I do update my Adobe camera Raw, so seems to get updates on lens profiles.

As I am now primary a Leica shoter on DNG only, all my files opens ok, with M10 or SL2. I don't get the latest tools with the new releases, and frankly I don't edit the files enough to need them. I don't want my raw files stored on the cloud.

Main question: is the much rendering engine difference with the new Lightroom classic? Lightroom 6.14 is using 2012 processing. For those who is on subscription with the latest (version 10 now), do you think you can get substantially more details or quality with the latest version?
