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 3.6.14 Changelog
  • Added the optional asynchronous VFS module.
  • Enhanced the query optimizer so that virtual tables are able to make use of OR and IN operators in the WHERE clause.
  • Speed improvements in the btree and pager layers.
  • Added the SQLITE_HAVE_ISNAN compile-time option which will cause the isnan() function from the standard math library to be used instead of SQLite's own home-brew NaN checker.
  • Countless minor bug fixes, documentation improvements, new and improved test cases, and code simplifications and cleanups.
