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 2.8.13 Changelog
  • Refactor parts of the code in order to make the code footprint smaller. The code is now also a little bit faster.
  • sqlite_exec() is now implemented as a wrapper around sqlite_compile() and sqlite_step().
  • The built-in min() and max() functions now honor the difference between NUMERIC and TEXT datatypes. Formerly, min() and max() always assumed their arguments were of type NUMERIC.
  • New HH:MM:SS modifier to the built-in date/time functions.
  • Experimental sqlite_last_statement_changes() API added. Fixed the last_insert_rowid() function so that it works correctly with triggers.
  • Add functions prototypes for the database encryption API.
  • Fix several nuisance bugs.
