<li>Added support for [sorting subsets of the result]
    when the result comes out of the query
    engine already partially sorted.
<li>Enhance the query planner so that it always prefers an index that uses a superset of
    WHERE clause terms relative to some other index.
<li>Improvements to the [automerge command] of [FTS4] to better control the index size
    for a full-text index that is subject to a large number of updates.
<li>Added the [SQLITE_TESTCTRL_BYTEORDER] test control.
<li>Added the [sqlite3_rtree_query_callback()] interface to [R-Tree extension]
<li>Added the [SQLITE_IOCAP_IMMUTABLE] bit to the set of bits that can be returned by
    the xDeviceCharacteristics method of a [VFS].
<li>Added new [URI query parameters] "nolock" and "immutable".
<li>Use less memory by not remembering CHECK constraints on read-only
    database connections.

query<p><b>Bug Fixes:</b>
<li>OFFSET clause ignored on queries without a FROM clause.

    doing an INSERT INTO ... SELECT statement where the number of columns
    being inserted is larger than the number of columns in the destination
    table.

    [http://www.sqlite.org/src/fdiff?sbs=1&v1=7d539cedb1c&v2=ebad891b7494d&smhdr|one-character fix]

    DISTINCT, GROUP BY in a subquery, and ORDER BY.
