newsitem {2011-June-28} {Version 3.7.7} {
  SQLite [version 3.7.7] is a regularly scheduled bi-monthly maintenance
  release.  Upgrading from version 3.7.6.3 is optional.  Upgrading from all
  prior releases is recommended.

  This release adds support for naming database files using [URI filenames].
  URI filenames are disabled by default (for backwards compatibility) but
  applications are encouraged to enable them since incompatibilities are
  likely to be exceedingly rare and the feature is useful.  See the 
  [URI filenames | URI filename documentation] for details.

  Most of the other enhancements in this release involve 
  [virtual tables].  The virtual table interface has been enhanced to
  support [SAVEPOINT] and [ON CONFLICT] clause processing, and the built-in 
  [RTREE] and [FTS3 | FTS3/FTS4] have been augmented to take advantage of 
  the new capability.  This means, for example, that it is now possible
  to use the [REPLACE] command on [FTS3 | FTS3/FTS4] and [RTREE] tables.

  The [FTS4] full-text index extension has been enhanced to support
  the [FTS4 prefix option] and the [FTS4 order option].  These two enhancements
  are provided in support of search-as-you-type interfaces where search
  results begin to appear after the first keystroke in the "search" box
  and are refined with each subsequent keystroke.  The way this is done is
  to do a separate full-text search after each key stroke, and add the
  "*" wildcard at the end of the word currently being typed.  So, for
  example, if the text typed so far is "fast da" and the next character
  typed is "t", then the application does a full-text search of the
  pattern "fast dat*" and displays the results.  Such capability has
  always existed.  What is new is that the [FTS4 prefix option] allows
  the search to be very fast (a matter of milliseconds) even for difficult
  cases such as "t*" or "th*".

  There has been a fair amount of work done on the FTS4 module for this
  release.  But the core SQLite code has changed little and the previous
  release has not given any problems, so we expect this to be a very
  stable release.
