Project description.

SQLite is an in-process library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine. The code for SQLite is in the public domain and is thus free for use for any purpose, commercial or private. SQLite is the most widely deployed database in the world with more applications than we can count, including several high-profile projects.

SQLite is an embedded SQL database engine. Unlike most other SQL databases, SQLite does not have a separate server process. SQLite reads and writes directly to ordinary disk files. A complete SQL database with multiple tables, indices, triggers, and views, is contained in a single disk file. The database file format is cross-platform - you can freely copy a database between 32-bit and 64-bit systems or between big-endian and little-endian architectures. These features make SQLite a popular choice as an Application File Format.

SQLite 2.0.1 Changelog
  • Remove some C++ style comments from btree.c so that it will compile using compilers other than gcc.
  • The ".dump" output from the shell does not work if there are embedded newlines anywhere in the data. This is an old bug that was carried forward from version 1.0. To fix it, the ".dump" output no longer uses the COPY command. It instead generates INSERT statements.
  • Extend the expression syntax to support "expr NOT NULL" (with a space between the "NOT" and the "NULL") in addition to "expr NOTNULL" (with no space).

200-09-28 (2.0.0)

  • Automatically build binaries for Linux and Windows and put them on the website.

2001-09-28 (2.0-alpha-4)

  • Incorporate makefile patches form A. Rottmann to use LIBTOOL

2001-09-27 (2.0-alpha-3)

  • SQLite now honors the UNIQUE keyword in CREATE UNIQUE INDEX. Primary keys are required to be unique.
  • File format changed back to what it was for alpha-1
  • Fixes to the rollback and locking behavior

2001-09-20 (2.0-alpha-2)

  • Initial release of version 2.0. The idea of renaming the library to "SQLus" was abandoned in favor of keeping the "SQLite" name and bumping the major version number.
  • The pager and btree subsystems added back. They are now the only available backend.
  • The Dbbe abstraction and the GDBM and memory drivers were removed.
  • Copyright on all code was disclaimed. The library is now in the public domain.
