Import 3.43.0 (last was 3.26.0)

2023-08-24 (3.43.0)
Add support for Contentless-Delete FTS5 Indexes. This is a variety
of FTS5 full-text search index that omits storing the content that
is being indexed while also allowing records to be deleted.
Enhancements to the date and time functions:
Added new time shift modifiers of the form YYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS.SSS.
Added the timediff() SQL function.
Added the octet_length(X) SQL function.
Added the sqlite3_stmt_explain() API.
Query planner enhancements:
Generalize the LEFT JOIN strength reduction optimization so that
it works for RIGHT and FULL JOINs as well. Rename it to OUTER JOIN
strength reduction.
Enhance the theorem prover in the OUTER JOIN strength reduction
optimization so that it returns fewer false-negatives.
Enhancements to the decimal extension:
New function decimal_pow2(N) returns the N-th power of 2 for integer
N between -20000 and +20000.
New function decimal_exp(X) works like decimal(X) except that it
returns the result in exponential notation - with a "e+NN" at the
If X is a floating-point value, then the decimal(X) function now
does a full expansion of that value into its exact decimal equivalent.
Performance enhancements to JSON processing results in a 2x
performance improvement for some kinds of processing on large JSON
New makefile target "verify-source" checks to ensure that there
are no unintentional changes in the source tree. (Works for canonical
source code only - not for precompiled amalgamation tarballs.)
Added the SQLITE_USE_SEH compile-time option that enables Structured
Exception Handling on Windows while working with the memory-mapped
shm file that is part of WAL mode processing. This option is enabled
by default when building on Windows using Makefile.msc.
The VFS for unix now assumes that the nanosleep() system call is
available unless compiled with -DHAVE_NANOSLEEP=0.

2023-05-16 (3.42.0)
Add the FTS5 secure-delete command. This option causes all forensic
traces to be removed from the FTS5 inverted index when content is
Enhance the JSON SQL functions to support JSON5 extensions.
sqlite3_config() are now allowed to occur after sqlite3_initialize().
New sqlite3_db_config() options: SQLITE_DBCONFIG_STMT_SCANSTATUS
Query planner improvements:
Enable the "count-of-view" optimization by default.
Avoid computing unused columns in subqueries.
Improvements to the push-down optimization.
Enhancements to the CLI:
Add the --unsafe-testing command-line option. Without this option,
some dot-commands (ex: ".testctrl") are now disabled because those
commands that are intended for testing only and can cause malfunctions
Allow commands ".log on" and ".log off", even in --safe mode.
"--" as a command-line argument means all subsequent arguments that
start with "-" are interpreted as normal non-option argument.
Magic parameters ":inf" and ":nan" bind to floating point literals
Infinity and NaN, respectively.
The --utf8 command-line option omits all translation to or from
MBCS on the Windows console for interactive sessions, and sets the
console code page for UTF-8 I/O during such sessions. The --utf8
option is a no-op on all other platforms.
Add the ability for application-defined SQL functions to have the
same name as join keywords: CROSS, FULL, INNER, LEFT, NATURAL,
Enhancements to PRAGMA integrity_check:
Detect and raise an error when a NaN value is stored in a NOT NULL
Improved error message output identifies the root page of a b-tree
when an error is found within a b-tree.
Allow the session extension to be configured to capture changes
from tables that lack an explicit ROWID.
Added the subsecond modifier to the date and time functions.
Negative values passed into sqlite3_sleep() are henceforth interpreted
as 0.
The maximum recursion depth for JSON arrays and objects is lowered
from 2000 to 1000.
Extended the built-in printf() function so the comma option now
works with floating-point conversions in addition to integer
Miscellaneous bug fixes and performance optimizations
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2023-05-16 12:36:15
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2023-03-22 (3.41.2)
Multiple fixes for reads past the end of memory buffers (NB: reads
not writes) in the following circumstances:
When processing a corrupt database file using the non-standard
SQLITE_ENABLE_STAT4 compile-time option.
In the CLI when the sqlite3_error_offset() routine returns an
out-of-range value (see also the fix to sqlite3_error_offset()
In the recovery extension.
In FTS3 when processing a corrupt database file.
Fix the sqlite3_error_offset() so that it does not return out-of-range
values when reporting errors associated with generated columns.
Multiple fixes in the query optimizer for problems that cause
incorrect results for bizarre, fuzzer-generated queries.
Increase the size of the reference counter in the page cache object
to 64 bits to ensure that the counter never overflows.
Fix a performance regression caused by a bug fix in patch release
Fix a few incorrect assert() statements.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2023-03-22 11:56:21
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2023-03-10 (3.41.1)
Provide compile-time options -DHAVE_LOG2=0 and -DHAVE_LOG10=0 to
enable SQLite to be compiled on systems that omit the standard
library functions log2() and log10(), repectively.
Ensure that the datatype for column t1.x in "CREATE TABLE t1 AS
SELECT CAST(7 AS INT) AS x;" continues to be INT and is not NUM,
for historical compatibility.
Enhance PRAGMA integrity_check to detect when extra bytes appear
at the end of an index record.
Fix various obscure bugs reported by the user community. See the
timeline of changes for details.

2023-02-21 (3.41.0)
Query planner improvements:
Make use of indexed expressions within an aggregate query that
includes a GROUP BY clause.
The query planner has improved awareness of when an index is a
covering index and adjusts predicted runtimes accordingly.
The query planner is more aggressive about using co-routines rather
than materializing subqueries and views.
Queries against the built-in table-valued functions json_tree()
and json_each() will now usually treat "ORDER BY rowid" as a no-op.
Enhance the ability of the query planner to use indexed expressions
even if the expression has been modified by the constant-propagation
optimization. (See forum thread 0a539c7.)
Add the built-in unhex() SQL function.
Add the base64 and base85 application-defined functions as an
extension and include that extension in the CLI.
Add the sqlite3_stmt_scanstatus_v2() interface. (This interface is
only available if SQLite is compiled using SQLITE_ENABLE_STMT_SCANSTATUS.)
In-memory databases created using sqlite3_deserialize() now report
their filename as an empty string, not as 'x'.
Changes to the CLI:
Add the new base64() and base85() SQL functions
Enhanced EXPLAIN QUERY PLAN output using the new
sqlite3_stmt_scanstatus_v2() interface when compiled using
The ".scanstats est" command provides query planner estimates in
The continuation prompt indicates if the input is currently inside
of a string literal, identifier literal, comment, trigger definition,
Enhance the --safe command-line option to disallow dangerous SQL
The double-quoted string misfeature is now disabled by default for
CLI builds. Legacy use cases can reenable the misfeature at run-time
using the ".dbconfig dqs_dml on" and ".dbconfig dqs_ddl on" commands.
Enhance the PRAGMA integrity_check command so that it detects when
text strings in a table are equivalent to but not byte-for-byte
identical to the same strings in the index.
Enhance the carray table-valued function so that it is able to bind
an array of BLOB objects.
Added the sqlite3_is_interrupted() interface.
Long-running calls to sqlite3_prepare() and similar now invoke the
progress handler callback and react to sqlite3_interrupt().
The sqlite3_vtab_in_first() and sqlite3_vtab_in_next() functions
are enhanced so that they reliably detect if they are invoked on
a parameter that was not selected for multi-value IN processing
using sqlite3_vtab_in(). They return SQLITE_ERROR instead of
SQLITE_MISUSE in this case.
The parser now ignores excess parentheses around a subquery on the
right-hand side of an IN operator, so that SQLite now works the
same as PostgreSQL in this regard. Formerly, SQLite treated the
subquery as an expression with an implied "LIMIT 1".
Added the SQLITE_FCNTL_RESET_CACHE option to the sqlite3_file_control()
Makefile improvements:
The new makefile target "sqlite3r.c" builds an amalgamation that
includes the recovery extension.
New makefile targets "devtest" and "releasetest" for running a
quick developmental test prior to doing a check-in and for doing
a full release test, respectively.
Miscellaneous performance enhancements.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2023-02-21 18:09:37
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2022-12-28 (3.40.1)
Fix the --safe command-line option to the CLI such that it correctly
disallows the use of SQL functions like writefile() that can cause
harmful side-effects.
Fix a potential infinite loop in the memsys5 alternative memory
allocator. This bug was introduced by a performance optimization
in version 3.39.0.
Various other obscure fixes.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2022-12-28 14:03:47
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2022-11-16 (3.40.0)
Add support for compiling SQLite to WASM and running it in web
browsers. NB: The WASM build and its interfaces are considered
"beta" and are subject to minor changes if the need arises. We
anticipate finalizing the interface for the next release.
Add the recovery extension that might be able to recover some
content from a corrupt database file.
Query planner enhancements:
Recognize covering indexes on tables with more than 63 columns
where columns beyond the 63rd column are used in the query and/or
are referenced by the index.
Extract the values of expressions contained within expression
indexes where practical, rather than recomputing the expression.
The NOT NULL and IS NULL operators (and their equivalents) avoid
loading the content of large strings and BLOB values from disk.
Avoid materializing a view on which a full scan is performed exactly
once. Use and discard the rows of the view as they are computed.
Allow flattening of a subquery that is the right-hand operand of
a LEFT JOIN in an aggregate query.
A new typedef named sqlite3_filename is added and used to represent
the name of a database file. Various interfaces are modified to
use the new typedef instead of "char*". This interface change should
be fully backwards compatible, though it might cause (harmless)
compiler warnings when rebuilding some legacy applications.
Add the sqlite3_value_encoding() interface.
Security enhancement: SQLITE_DBCONFIG_DEFENSIVE is augmented to
prohibit changing the schema_version. The schema_version becomes
read-only in defensive mode.
Enhancements to the PRAGMA integrity_check statement:
Columns in non-STRICT tables with TEXT affinity should not contain
numeric values.
Columns in non-STRICT tables with NUMERIC affinity should not
contain TEXT values that could be converted into numbers.
Verify that the rows of a WITHOUT ROWID table are in the correct
Enhance the VACUUM INTO statement so that it honors the PRAGMA
synchronous setting.
Enhance the sqlite3_strglob() and sqlite3_strlike() APIs so that
they are able to accept NULL pointers for their string parameters
and still generate a sensible result.
Provide the new SQLITE_MAX_ALLOCATION_SIZE compile-time option for
limiting the size of memory allocations.
Change the algorithm used by SQLite's built-in pseudo-random number
generator (PRNG) from RC4 to Chacha20.
Allow two or more indexes to have the same name as long as they
are all in separate schemas.
Miscellaneous performance optimizations result in about 1% fewer
CPU cycles used on typical workloads.

Fix a long-standing problem in the btree balancer that might, in
rare cases, cause database corruption if the application uses an
application-defined page cache.
Enhance SQLITE_DBCONFIG_DEFENSIVE so that it disallows CREATE
TRIGGER statements if one or more of the statements in the body of
the trigger write into shadow tables.
Fix a possible integer overflow in the size computation for a memory
allocation in FTS3.
Fix a misuse of the sqlite3_set_auxdata() interface in the ICU

might abort. See forum thread 9b9e4716c0d7bbd1.
Use a mutex to protect the PRAGMA temp_store_directory and PRAGMA
data_store_directory statements, even though they are deprecated
and documented as not being threadsafe. See forum post 719a11e1314d1c70.

Fix an incorrect result from a query that uses a view that contains
a compound SELECT in which only one arm contains a RIGHT JOIN and
where the view is not the first FROM clause term of the query that
contains the view. forum post 174afeae5734d42d.
Fix some harmless compiler warnings.
Fix a long-standing problem with ALTER TABLE RENAME that can only
arise if the sqlite3_limit(SQLITE_LIMIT_SQL_LENGTH) is set to a
very small value.
Fix a long-standing problem in FTS3 that can only arise when compiled
with the SQLITE_ENABLE_FTS3_PARENTHESIS compile-time option.
Fix the build so that is works when the SQLITE_DEBUG and
SQLITE_OMIT_WINDOWFUNC compile-time options are both provided at
the same time.
Fix the initial-prefix optimization for the REGEXP extension so
that it works correctly even if the prefix contains characters that
require a 3-byte UTF8 encoding.
Enhance the sqlite_stmt virtual table so that it buffers all of
its output.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2022-07-13 19:41:41
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2022-06-25 (3.39.0)
Add (long overdue) support for RIGHT and FULL OUTER JOIN.
Add new binary comparison operators IS NOT DISTINCT FROM and IS
DISTINCT FROM that are equivalent to IS and IS NOT, respective,
for compatibility with PostgreSQL and SQL standards.
Add a new return code (value "3") from the sqlite3_vtab_distinct()
interface that indicates a query that has both DISTINCT and ORDER
BY clauses.
Added the sqlite3_db_name() interface.
The unix os interface resolves all symbolic links in database
filenames to create a canonical name for the database before the
file is opened. If the SQLITE_OPEN_NOFOLLOW flag is used with
sqlite3_open_v2() or similar, the open will fail if any element of
the path is a symbolic link.
Defer materializing views until the materialization is actually
needed, thus avoiding unnecessary work if the materialization turns
out to never be used.
The HAVING clause of a SELECT statement is now allowed on any
aggregate query, even queries that do not have a GROUP BY clause.

Added the -> and ->> operators for easier processing of JSON. The
new operators are compatible with MySQL and PostgreSQL.
The JSON functions are now built-ins. It is no longer necessary to
use the -DSQLITE_ENABLE_JSON1 compile-time option to enable JSON
support. JSON is on by default. Disable the JSON interface using
the new -DSQLITE_OMIT_JSON compile-time option.
Enhancements to date and time functions:
Added the unixepoch() function.
Added the auto modifier and the julianday modifier.
Rename the printf() SQL function to format() for better compatibility.
The original printf() name is retained as an alias for backwards
Added the sqlite3_error_offset() interface, which can sometimes
help to localize an SQL error to a specific character in the input
SQL text, so that applications can provide better error messages.
Enhanced the interface to virtual tables as follows:
Added the sqlite3_vtab_distinct() interface.
Added the sqlite3_vtab_rhs_value() interface.
Added new operator types SQLITE_INDEX_CONSTRAINT_LIMIT and
Added the sqlite3_vtab_in() interface (and related) to enable a
virtual table to process IN operator constraints all at once, rather
than processing each value of the right-hand side of the IN operator
CLI enhancements:
Columnar output modes are enhanced to correctly handle tabs and
newlines embedded in text.
Added options like "--wrap N", "--wordwrap on", and "--quote" to
the columnar output modes.
Added the .mode qbox alias.
The .import command automatically disambiguates column names.
Use the new sqlite3_error_offset() interface to provide better
error messages.
Query planner enhancements:
Use a Bloom filter to speed up large analytic queries.
Use a balanced merge tree to evaluate UNION or UNION ALL compound
SELECT statements that have an ORDER BY clause.

STRICT tables provide a prescriptive style of data type management,
for developers who prefer that kind of thing.
When adding columns that contain a CHECK constraint or a generated
column containing a NOT NULL constraint, the ALTER TABLE ADD COLUMN
now checks new constraints against preexisting rows in the database
and will only proceed if no constraints are violated.
Added the PRAGMA table_list statement.
CLI enhancements:
Add the .connection command, allowing the CLI to keep multiple
database connections open at the same time.

Added built-in SQL math functions(). (Requires the
-DSQLITE_ENABLE_MATH_FUNCTIONS compile-time option.)
Added support for ALTER TABLE DROP COLUMN.
Generalize UPSERT:
Allow multiple ON CONFLICT clauses that are evaluated in order,
The final ON CONFLICT clause may omit the conflict target and yet
still use DO UPDATE.
Add support for the RETURNING clause on DELETE, INSERT, and UPDATE
Use less memory when running VACUUM on databases containing very
large TEXT or BLOB values. It is no longer necessary to hold the
entire TEXT or BLOB in memory all at once.
Add support for the MATERIALIZED and NOT MATERIALIZED hints when
specifying common table expressions. The default behavior was
formerly NOT MATERIALIZED, but is now changed to MATERIALIZED for
CTEs that are used more than once.
settings are modified so that they only control triggers and views
in the main database schema or in attached database schemas and
not in the TEMP schema. TEMP triggers and views are always allowed.
Query planner/optimizer improvements:
Enhancements to the min/max optimization so that it works better
with the IN operator and the OP_SeekScan optimization of the previous
Attempt to process EXISTS operators in the WHERE clause as if they
were IN operators, in cases where this is a valid transformation
and seems likely to improve performance.
Allow UNION ALL sub-queries to be flattened even if the parent
query is a join.
Use an index, if appropriate, on IS NOT NULL expressions in the
WHERE clause, even if STAT4 is disabled.
Expressions of the form "x IS NULL" or "x IS NOT NULL" might be
converted to simply FALSE or TRUE, if "x" is a column that has a
"NOT NULL" constraint and is not involved in an outer join.
Avoid checking foreign key constraints on an UPDATE statement if
the UPDATE does not modify any columns associated with the foreign
Allow WHERE terms to be pushed down into sub-queries that contain
window functions, as long as the WHERE term is made up of entirely
of constants and copies of expressions found in the PARTITION BY
clauses of all window functions in the sub-query.
CLI enhancements:
Enhance the ".stats" command to accept new arguments "stmt" and
"vmstep", causing prepare statement statistics and only the
virtual-machine step count to be shown, respectively.
Add the ".filectrl data_version" command.
Enhance the ".once" and ".output" commands so that if the destination
argument begins with "|" (indicating that output is redirected into
a pipe) then the argument does not need to be quoted.
Bug fixes:
Fix a potential NULL pointer dereference when processing a
syntactically incorrect SELECT statement with a correlated WHERE
clause and a "HAVING 0" clause. (Also fixed in the 3.34.1 patch
Fix a bug in the IN-operator optimization of version 3.33.0 that
can cause an incorrect answer.
Fix incorrect answers from the LIKE operator if the pattern ends
with "%" and there is an "ESCAPE '_'" clause.

2021-01-20 (3.34.1)
Fix a potential use-after-free bug when processing a a subquery
with both a correlated WHERE clause and a "HAVING 0" clause and
where the parent query is an aggregate.
Fix documentation typos
Fix minor problems in extensions.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2021-01-20 14:10:07
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-12-01 (3.34.0)
Added the sqlite3_txn_state() interface for reporting on the current
transaction state of the database connection.
Enhance recursive common table expressions to support two or more
recursive terms as is done by SQL Server, since this helps make
queries against graphs easier to write and faster to execute.
Improved error messages on CHECK constraint failures.
CLI enhancements:
The .read dot-command now accepts a pipeline in addition to a
Added options --data-only and --nosys to the .dump dot-command.
Added the --nosys option to the .schema dot-command.
Table name quoting works correctly for the .import dot-command.
The generate_series(START,END,STEP) table-valued function extension
is now built into the CLI.
The .databases dot-command now shows the status of each database
file as determined by sqlite3_db_readonly() and sqlite3_txn_state().
Added the --tabs command-line option that sets .mode tabs.
The --init option reports an error if the file named as its argument
cannot be opened. The --init option also now honors the --bail
Query planner improvements:
Improved estimates for the cost of running a DISTINCT operator.
When doing an UPDATE or DELETE using a multi-column index where
only a few of the earlier columns of the index are useful for the
index lookup, postpone doing the main table seek until after all
WHERE clause constraints have been evaluated, in case those
constraints can be covered by unused later terms of the index, thus
avoiding unnecessary main table seeks.
The new OP_SeekScan opcode is used to improve performance of
multi-column index look-ups when later columns are constrained by
an IN operator.
The BEGIN IMMEDIATE and BEGIN EXCLUSIVE commands now work even if
one or more attached database files are read-only.
Enhanced FTS5 to support trigram indexes.
Improved performance of WAL mode locking primitives in cases where
there are hundreds of connections all accessing the same database
file at once.
Enhanced the carray() table-valued function to include a single-argument
form that is bound using the auxiliary sqlite3_carray_bind()
The substr() SQL function can now also be called "substring()" for
compatibility with SQL Server.
The syntax diagrams are now implemented as Pikchr scripts and
rendered as SVG for improved legibility and ease of maintenance.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2020-12-01 16:14:00
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-08-14 (3.33.0)
Support for UPDATE FROM following the PostgreSQL syntax.
Increase the maximum size of database files to 281 TB.
Extended the PRAGMA integrity_check statement so that it can
optionally be limited to verifying just a single table and its
indexes, rather than the entire database file.
Added the decimal extension for doing arbitrary-precision decimal
Enhancements to the ieee754 extension for working with IEEE 754
binary64 numbers.
CLI enhancements:
Added four new output modes: "box", "json", "markdown", and "table".
The "column" output mode automatically expands columns to contain
the longest output row and automatically turns ".header" on if it
has not been previously set.
The "quote" output mode honors ".separator"
The decimal extension and the ieee754 extension are built-in to
the CLI
Query planner improvements:
Add the ability to find a full-index-scan query plan for queries
using INDEXED BY which previously would fail with "no query solution".
Do a better job of detecting missing, incomplete, and/or dodgy
sqlite_stat1 data and generates good query plans in spite of the
Improved performance of queries like "SELECT min(x) FROM t WHERE
y IN (?,?,?)" assuming an index on t(x,y).
In WAL mode, if a writer crashes and leaves the shm file in an
inconsistent state, subsequent transactions are now able to recover
the shm file even if there are active read transactions. Before
this enhancement, shm file recovery that scenario would result in

SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-05-25 (3.32.1)
Fix two long-standing bugs that allow malicious SQL statements to
crash the process that is running SQLite. These bugs were announced
by a third-party approximately 24 hours after the 3.32.0 release
but are not specific to the 3.32.0 release.
Other minor compiler-warning fixes and whatnot.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2020-05-25 16:19:56
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-05-22 (3.32.0)
Added support for approximate ANALYZE using the PRAGMA analysis_limit
Added the bytecode virtual table.
Add the checksum VFS shim to the set of run-time loadable extensions
included in the source tree.
Added the iif() SQL function.
INSERT and UPDATE statements now always apply column affinity before
computing CHECK constraints. This bug fix could, in theory, cause
problems for legacy databases with unorthodox CHECK constraints
the require the input type for an INSERT is different from the
declared column type. See ticket 86ba67afafded936 for more information.
Added the sqlite3_create_filename(), sqlite3_free_filename(), and
sqlite3_database_file_object() interfaces to better support of VFS
shim implementations.
Increase the default upper bound on the number of parameters from
999 to 32766.
Added code for the UINT collating sequence as an optional loadable
Enhancements to the CLI:
Add options to the .import command: --csv, --ascii, --skip
The .dump command now accepts multiple LIKE-pattern arguments and
outputs the union of all matching tables.
Add the .oom command in debugging builds
Add the --bom option to the .excel, .output, and .once commands.
Enhance the .filectrl command to support the --schema option.
The UINT collating sequence extension is automatically loaded
The ESCAPE clause of a LIKE operator now overrides wildcard
characters, so that the behavior matches what PostgreSQL does.

SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-01-27 (3.31.1)
Revert the data layout for an internal-use-only SQLite data structure.
Applications that use SQLite should never reference internal SQLite
data structures, but some do anyhow, and a change to one such data
structure in 3.30.0 broke a popular and widely-deployed application.
Reverting that change in SQLite, at least temporarily, gives
developers of misbehaving applications time to fix their code.
Fix a typos in the sqlite3ext.h header file that prevented the
sqlite3_stmt_isexplain() and sqlite3_value_frombind() interfaces
from being called from run-time loadable extensions.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2020-01-27 19:55:54
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2020-01-22 (3.31.0)
Add support for generated columns.
Add the sqlite3_hard_heap_limit64() interface and the corresponding
PRAGMA hard_heap_limit command.
Enhance the function_list pragma to show the number of arguments
on each function, the type of function (scalar, aggregate, window),
and the function property flags SQLITE_DETERMINISTIC, SQLITE_DIRECTONLY,
Add the aggregated mode feature to the DBSTAT virtual table.
Add the SQLITE_OPEN_NOFOLLOW option to sqlite3_open_v2() that
prevents SQLite from opening symbolic links.
Added the "#-N" array notation for JSON function path arguments.
Added the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_TRUSTED_SCHEMA connection setting which
is also controllable via the new trusted_schema pragma and at
compile-time using the -DSQLITE_TRUSTED_SCHEMA compile-time option.
Added APIs sqlite3_filename_database(), sqlite3_filename_journal(),
and sqlite3_filename_wal() which are useful for specialized
Add the sqlite3_uri_key() interface.
Upgraded the sqlite3_uri_parameter() function so that it works with
the rollback journal or WAL filename in addition to the database
Provide the ability to tag application-defined SQL functions with
Add new verbs to sqlite3_vtab_config() so that the xConnect method
of virtual tables can declare the virtual table as SQLITE_VTAB_INNOCUOUS
Faster response to sqlite3_interrupt().
Added the uuid.c extension module implementing functions for
processing RFC-4122 UUIDs.
The lookaside memory allocator is enhanced to support two separate
memory pools with different sized allocations in each pool. This
allows more memory allocations to be covered by lookaside while at
the same time reducing the heap memory usage to 48KB per connection,
down from 120KB.
The legacy_file_format pragma is deactivated. It is now a no-op.
In its place, the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_LEGACY_FILE_FORMAT option to
sqlite3_db_config() is provided. The legacy_file_format pragma is
deactivated because (1) it is rarely useful and (2) it is incompatible
with VACUUM in schemas that have tables with both generated columns
and descending indexes. Ticket 6484e6ce678fffab

Cherrypick fixes for other obscure problems found since the 3.30.0
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2019-10-10 20:19:45
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2019-10-04 (3.30.0)
Add support for the FILTER clause on aggregate functions.
Add support for the NULLS FIRST and NULLS LAST syntax in ORDER BY
The index_info and index_xinfo pragmas are enhanced to provide
information about the on-disk representation of WITHOUT ROWID
Add the sqlite3_drop_modules() interface, allowing applications to
disable automatically loaded virtual tables that they do not need.
Improvements to the .recover dot-command in the CLI so that it
recovers more content from corrupt database files.
Enhance the RBU extension to support indexes on expressions.
Change the schema parser so that it will error out if any of the
type, name, and tbl_name columns of the sqlite_master table have
been corrupted and the database connection is not in writable_schema
The PRAGMA function_list, PRAGMA module_list, and PRAGMA pragma_list
commands are now enabled in all builds by default. Disable them
Add the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_VIEW option for sqlite3_db_config().
Added the TCL Interface config method in order to be able to disable
SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_VIEW as well as control other sqlite3_db_config()
options from TCL.
Added the SQLITE_DIRECTONLY flag for application-defined SQL
functions to prevent those functions from being used inside triggers
and views.
The legacy SQLITE_ENABLE_STAT3 compile-time option is now a no-op.
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2019-10-04 15:03:17
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2019-07-10 (3.29.0)
actions to sqlite3_db_config() for activating and deactivating the
double-quoted string literal misfeature. Both default to "on" for
legacy compatibility, but developers are encouraged to turn them
"off", perhaps using the -DSQLITE_DQS=0 compile-time option.
-DSQLITE_DQS=0 is now a recommended compile-time option.
Improvements to the query planner:
Improved optimization of AND and OR operators when one or the other
operand is a constant.
Enhancements to the LIKE optimization for cases when the left-hand
side column has numeric affinity.
Added the "sqlite_dbdata" virtual table for extracting raw low-level
content from an SQLite database, even a database that is corrupt.
Improvements to rounding behavior, so that the results of rounding
binary numbers using the round() function are closer to what people
who are used to thinking in decimal actually expect.
Enhancements to the CLI:
Add the ".recover" command which tries to recover as much content
as possible from a corrupt database file.
Add the ".filectrl" command useful for testing.
Add the long-standing ".testctrl" command to the ".help" menu.
Added the ".dbconfig" command
SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: 2019-07-10 17:32:03
SHA3-256 for sqlite3.c:

2019-04-16 (3.28.0)
Enhanced window functions:
Add support the EXCLUDE clause.
Add support for window chaining.
Add support for GROUPS frames.
Add support for "<expr> PRECEDING" and "<expr> FOLLOWING" boundaries
in RANGE frames.
Added the new sqlite3_stmt_isexplain(S) interface for determining
whether or not a prepared statement is an EXPLAIN.
Enhanced VACUUM INTO so that it works for read-only databases.
New query optimizations:
Enable the LIKE optimization for cases when the ESCAPE keyword is
present and PRAGMA case_sensitive_like is on.
In queries that are driven by a partial index, avoid unnecessary
tests of the constraint named in the WHERE clause of the partial
index, since we know that constraint must always be true.
Enhancements to the TCL Interface:
Added the -returntype option to the function method.
Added the new bind_fallback method.
Enhancements to the CLI:
Added support for bound parameters and the .parameter command.
Fix the readfile() function so that it returns an empty BLOB rather
than throwing an out-of-memory error when reading an empty file.
Fix the writefile() function so that when it creates new directories
along the path of a new file, it gives them umask permissions rather
than the same permissions as the file.
Change --update option in the .archive command so that it skips
files that are already in the archive and are unchanged. Add the
new --insert option that works like --update used to work.
Added the fossildelta.c extension that can create, apply, and
deconstruct the Fossil DVCS file delta format that is used by the
RBU extension.
Added the SQLITE_DBCONFIG_WRITABLE_SCHEMA verb for the sqlite3_db_config()
interface, that does the same work as PRAGMA writable_schema without
using the SQL parser.
Added the sqlite3_value_frombind() API for determining if the
argument to an SQL function is from a bound parameter.
Security and compatibilities enhancements to fts3_tokenizer():
The fts3_tokenizer() function always returns NULL unless either
the legacy application-defined FTS3 tokenizers interface are enabled
using the sqlite3_db_config(SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_FTS3_TOKENIZER)
setting, or unless the first argument to fts3_tokenizer() is a
bound parameter.
The two-argument version of fts3_tokenizer() accepts a pointer to
the tokenizer method object even without the
sqlite3_db_config(SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_FTS3_TOKENIZER) setting
if the second argument is a bound parameter
Improved robustness against corrupt database files.
Miscellaneous performance enhancements
Established a Git mirror of the offical SQLite source tree. The
canonical sources for SQLite are maintained using the Fossil DVCS

Issue an SQLITE_WARNING message on the error log if a double-quoted
string literal is used.
The sqlite3_normalized_sql() interface works on any prepared
statement created using sqlite3_prepare_v2() or sqlite3_prepare_v3().
It is no longer necessary to use sqlite3_prepare_v3() with
SQLITE_PREPARE_NORMALIZE in order to use sqlite3_normalized_sql().
Added the remove_diacritics=2 option to FTS3 and FTS5.
Added the SQLITE_PREPARE_NO_VTAB option to sqlite3_prepare_v3().
Use that option to prevent circular references to shadow tables
from causing resource leaks.
Enhancements to the sqlite3_deserialize() interface:
Add the SQLITE_FCNTL_SIZE_LIMIT file-control for setting an upper
bound on the size of the in-memory database created by sqlite3_deserialize.
The default upper bound is 1GiB, or whatever alternative value is
specified by sqlite3_config(SQLITE_CONFIG_MEMDB_MAXSIZE) and/or
Honor the SQLITE_DESERIALIZE_READONLY flag, which was previously
described in the documentation, but was previously a no-op.
Enhance the "deserialize" command of the TCL Interface to give it
new "--maxsize N" and "--readonly BOOLEAN" options.
Enhancements to the CLI, mostly to support testing and debugging
of the SQLite library itself:
Add support for ".open --hexdb". The "dbtotxt" utility program used
to generate the text for the "hexdb" is added to the source tree.
Add support for the "--maxsize N" option on ".open --deserialize".
Add the "--memtrace" command-line option, to show all memory
allocations and deallocations.
Add the ".eqp trace" option on builds with SQLITE_DEBUG, to enable
bytecode program listing with indentation and PRAGMA vdbe_trace
all in one step.
Add the ".progress" command for accessing the sqlite3_progress_handler()
Add the "--async" option to the ".backup" command.
Add options "--expanded", "--normalized", "--plain", "--profile",
"--row", "--stmt", and "--close" to the ".trace" command.
Increased robustness against malicious SQL that is run against a
maliciously corrupted database.
