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 3.7.14 Changelog
  • Drop built-in support for OS/2. If you need to upgrade an OS/2 application to use this or a later version of SQLite, then add an application-defined VFS using the sqlite3_vfs_register() interface. The code removed in this release can serve as a baseline for the application-defined VFS.
  • Ensure that floating point values are preserved exactly when reconstructing a database from the output of the ".dump" command of the command-line shell.
  • Added the sqlite3_close_v2() interface.
  • Updated the command-line shell so that it can be built using SQLITE_OMIT_FLOATING_POINT and SQLITE_OMIT_AUTOINIT.
  • Improvements to the windows makefiles and build processes.
  • Enhancements to PRAGMA integrity_check and PRAGMA quick_check so that they can optionally check just a single attached database instead of all attached databases.
  • Enhancements to WAL mode processing that ensure that at least one valid read-mark is available at all times, so that read-only processes can always read the database.
  • Performance enhancements in the sorter used by ORDER BY and CREATE INDEX.
  • Added the SQLITE_DISABLE_FTS4_DEFERRED compile-time option.
  • Better handling of aggregate queries where the aggregate functions are contained within subqueries.
  • Enhance the query planner so that it will try to use a covering index on queries that make use of or optimization.
  • SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: "2012-09-03 15:42:36 c0d89d4a9752922f9e367362366efde4f1b06f2a"
