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 3.4.1 Changelog
  • Fix a bug in VACUUM that can lead to database corruption if two processes are connected to the database at the same time and one VACUUMs then the other then modifies the database.
  • The expression "+column" is now considered the same as "column" when computing the collating sequence to use on the expression.
  • In the TCL language interface, "@variable" instead of "$variable" always binds as a blob.
  • Added PRAGMA freelist_count for determining the current size of the freelist.
  • The PRAGMA auto_vacuum=incremental setting is now persistent.
  • Add FD_CLOEXEC to all open files under Unix.
  • Fix a bug in the min()/max() optimization when applied to descending indices.
  • Make sure the TCL language interface works correctly with 64-bit integers on 64-bit machines.
  • Allow the value -9223372036854775808 as an integer literal in SQL statements.
  • Add the capability of "hidden" columns in virtual tables.
  • Use the macro SQLITE_PRIVATE (defaulting to "static") on all internal functions in the amalgamation.
