SQLite

3.7.5

Released on 1 Feb 2011
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 3.7.5 Changelog
  • Added the sqlite3_vsnprintf() interface.
  • Added the SQLITE_DBSTATUS_LOOKASIDE_HIT, SQLITE_DBSTATUS_LOOKASIDE_MISS_SIZE, and SQLITE_DBSTATUS_LOOKASIDE_MISS_FULL options for the sqlite3_db_status() interface.
  • Added the SQLITE_OMIT_AUTORESET compile-time option.
  • Added the SQLITE_DEFAULT_FOREIGN_KEYS compile-time option.
  • Updates to sqlite3_stmt_readonly() so that its result is well-defined for all prepared statements and so that it works with VACUUM.
  • Added the "-heap" option to the command-line shell
  • Fix a bug involving frequent changes in and out of WAL mode and VACUUM that could (in theory) cause database corruption.
  • Enhance the sqlite3_trace() mechanism so that nested SQL statements such as might be generated by virtual tables are shown but are shown in comments and without parameter expansion. This greatly improves tracing output when using the FTS3/4 and/or RTREE virtual tables.
  • Change the xFileControl() methods on all built-in VFSes to return SQLITE_NOTFOUND instead of SQLITE_ERROR for an unrecognized operation code.
  • The SQLite core invokes the SQLITE_FCNTL_SYNC_OMITTED file control to the VFS in place of a call to xSync if the database has PRAGMA synchronous set to OFF.
