chng {2000 Aug 1} {
<li>The parser's stack was overflowing on a very long UPDATE statement.
    This is now fixed.</li>
}

chng {2000 July 31} {
<li>Finish the <a href="vdbe.html">VDBE tutorial</a>.</li>
<li>Added documentation on compiling to WinNT.</li>
<li>Fix a configuration program for WinNT.</li>
<li>Fix a configuration problem for HPUX.</li>
}

chng {2000 July 29} {
<li>Better labels on column names of the result.</li>
}

chng {2000 July 28} {
<li>Added the <b>sqlite_busy_handler()</b> 
    and <b>sqlite_busy_timeout()</b> interface.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 23} {
<li>Begin writing the <a href="vdbe.html">VDBE tutorial</a>.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 21} {
<li>Clean up comments and variable names.  Changes to documentation.
    No functional changes to the code.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 19} {
<li>Column names in UPDATE statements were case sensitive.
    This mistake has now been fixed.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 16} {
<li>Added the concatenate string operator (||)</li>
}

chng {2000 June 12} {
<li>Added the fcnt() function to the SQL interpreter.  The fcnt() function
    returns the number of database "Fetch" operations that have occurred.
    This function is designed for use in test scripts to verify that
    queries are efficient and appropriately optimized.  Fcnt() has no other
    useful purpose, as far as I know.</li>
<li>Added a bunch more tests that take advantage of the new fcnt() function.
    The new tests did not uncover any new problems.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 8} {
<li>Added lots of new test cases</li>
<li>Fix a few bugs discovered while adding test cases</li>
<li>Begin adding lots of new documentation</li>
}

chng {2000 June 6} {
<li>Added compound select operators: <B>UNION</b>, <b>UNION ALL</B>,
<b>INTERSECT</b>, and <b>EXCEPT</b></li>
<li>Added support for using <b>(SELECT ...)</b> within expressions</li>
<li>Added support for <b>IN</b> and <b>BETWEEN</b> operators</li>
<li>Added support for <b>GROUP BY</b> and <b>HAVING</b></li>
<li>NULL values are now reported to the callback as a NULL pointer
    rather than an empty string.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 3} {
<li>Added support for default values on columns of a table.</li>
<li>Improved test coverage.  Fixed a few obscure bugs found by the
improved tests.</li>
}

chng {2000 June 2} {
<li>All database files to be modified by an UPDATE, INSERT or DELETE are 
now locked before any changes are made to any files.  
This makes it safe (I think) to access
the same database simultaneously from multiple processes.</li>
<li>The code appears stable so we are now calling it "beta".</li>
}

chng {2000 June 1} {
<li>Better support for file locking so that two or more processes 
(or threads)
can access the same database simultaneously.  More work needed in
this area, though.</li>
}

chng {2000 May 31} {
<li>Added support for aggregate functions (Ex: <b>COUNT(*)</b>, <b>MIN(...)</b>)
to the SELECT statement.</li>
<li>Added support for <B>SELECT DISTINCT ...</B></li>
}

chng {2000 May 30} {
<li>Added the <b>LIKE</b> operator.</li>
<li>Added a <b>GLOB</b> operator: similar to <B>LIKE</B> 
but it uses Unix shell globbing wildcards instead of the '%' 
and '_' wildcards of SQL.</li>
<li>Added the <B>COPY</b> command patterned after 
[http://www.postgresql.org/ | PostgreSQL] so that SQLite
can now read the output of the <b>pg_dump</b> database dump utility
................................................................................
of PostgreSQL.</li>
<li>Added a <B>VACUUM</B> command that calls the 
<b>gdbm_reorganize()</b> function on the underlying database
files.</li>
<li>And many, many bug fixes...</li>
}

chng {2000 May 29} {
<li>Initial Public Release of Alpha code</li>
}

    to warn the user that a failure of one of those (rare) tests does
    not necessarily mean the library is malfunctioning.  No changes to
    code.
    </li>
}

chng {2001-03-14 (1.0.24)} {
<li>Fix a bug which was causing
    the UPDATE command to fail on systems where "malloc(0)" returns
    NULL.  The problem does not appear on Windows, Linux, or HPUX but does 
    cause the library to fail on QNX.
    </li>
}

chng {2001-02-19 (1.0.23)} {
<li>An unrelated (and minor) bug from Mark Muranwski fixed.  The algorithm
    for figuring out where to put temporary files for a "memory:" database
    was not working quite right.
    </li>
}

chng {2001-02-19 (1.0.22)} {

chng {2001-02-19 (1.0.21)} {
<li>The UPDATE statement was not working when the WHERE clause contained
    some terms that could be satisfied using indices and other terms that
    could not.  Fixed.</li>
}

chng {2001-02-11 (1.0.20)} {
<li>Merge development changes into the main trunk.  Future work toward
    using a BTree file structure will use a separate CVS source tree.  This
    CVS tree will continue to support the GDBM version of SQLite only.</li>
}

chng {2001-02-06 (1.0.19)} {

}

chng {2000-10-23 (1.0.15)} {
<li>Documentation updates</li>
<li>Some sanity checking code was removed from the inner loop of vdbe.c
    to help the library to run a little faster.  The code is only
    removed if you compile with -DNDEBUG.</li>
}

chng {2000-10-19 (1.0.14)} {
<li>Added a "memory:" backend driver that stores its database in an
    in-memory hash table.</li>
}

chng {2000-10-18 (1.0.13)} {
<li>Break out the GDBM driver into a separate file in anticipation
    to added new drivers.</li>
<li>Allow the name of a database to be prefixed by the driver type.
    For now, the only driver type is "gdbm:".</li>
}

chng {2000-10-16 (1.0.12)} {
<li>Fixed an off-by-one error that was causing a coredump in 
    the '%q' format directive of the new
    <b>sqlite_..._printf()</b> routines.</li>
<li>Added the <b>sqlite_interrupt()</b> interface.</li>
<li>In the shell, <b>sqlite_interrupt()</b> is invoked when the
    user presses Control-C</li>

    returning the wrong error code.</li>
}

chng {2000-10-11 (1.0.10)} {

<li>Modified the <b>sqlite</b> shell program to use the new interface 
    routines.</li>
<li>Modified the <b>sqlite</b> shell program to print the schema for
    the built-in SQLITE_MASTER table, if explicitly requested.</li>
}

chng {2000-09-30 (1.0.8)} {
<li>Begin writing documentation on the TCL interface.</li>
}

chng {2000-09-29 (Not Released)} {
<li>Added the <b>sqlite_get_table()</b> API</li>
<li>Updated the documentation for due to the above change.</li>
<li>Modified the <b>sqlite</b> shell to make use of the new
    sqlite_get_table() API in order to print a list of tables
    in multiple columns, similar to the way "ls" prints filenames.</li>
<li>Modified the <b>sqlite</b> shell to print a semicolon at the
    end of each CREATE statement in the output of the ".schema" command.</li>
}

chng {2000-09-21 (Not Released)} {
<li>Change the tclsqlite "eval" method to return a list of results if

    (ex: 1.234e+05) sort in numerical order.</li>
}

chng {2000-08-28 (Version 1.0.4)} {
<li>Added functions <b>length()</b> and <b>substr()</b>.</li>

    a coredump when the output mode was "column" and the first row
    of data contained a NULL.</li>
}

chng {2000-08-22 (Version 1.0.3)} {
<li>In the sqlite shell, print the "Database opened READ ONLY" message
    to stderr instead of stdout.</li>
<li>In the sqlite shell, now print the version number on initial startup.</li>
<li>Add the <b>sqlite_version&#91;&#93;</b> string constant to the library</li>
<li>Makefile updates</li>

    circumstance: a query on an indexed table containing a WHERE clause with
    an IN operator that had a subquery on its right-hand side.</li>
}

chng {2000-08-18 (Version 1.0.1)} {
<li>Fix a bug in the configure script.</li>
<li>Minor revisions to the website.</li>
}

chng {2000-08-17 (Version 1.0)} {
<li>Change the <b>sqlite</b> program so that it can read
    databases for which it lacks write permission.  (It used to
    refuse all access if it could not write.)</li>
}

chng {2000-08-09} {

}

chng {2000-08-03} {
<li>File format version number was being stored in sqlite_master.tcl
    multiple times. This was harmless, but unnecessary. It is now fixed.</li>
}

chng {2000-08-02} {
<li>The file format for indices was changed slightly in order to work
    around an inefficiency that can sometimes come up with GDBM when
    there are large indices having many entries with the same key.
    <font color="red">** Incompatible Change **</font></li>
}

chng {2000-08-01} {
<li>The parser's stack was overflowing on a very long UPDATE statement.
    This is now fixed.</li>
}

}

chng {2000-06-21} {
<li>Clean up comments and variable names.  Changes to documentation.
    No functional changes to the code.</li>
}

chng {2000-06-19} {
<li>Column names in UPDATE statements were case sensitive.
    This mistake has now been fixed.</li>
}

chng {2000-06-18} {
<li>Added the concatenate string operator (||)</li>
}

chng {2000-06-12} {
<li>Added the fcnt() function to the SQL interpreter.  The fcnt() function
    returns the number of database "Fetch" operations that have occurred.
    This function is designed for use in test scripts to verify that
    queries are efficient and appropriately optimized.  Fcnt() has no other
    useful purpose, as far as I know.</li>
<li>Added a bunch more tests that take advantage of the new fcnt() function.
    The new tests did not uncover any new problems.</li>
}

<li>Added support for <b>IN</b> and <b>BETWEEN</b> operators</li>
<li>Added support for <b>GROUP BY</b> and <b>HAVING</b></li>
<li>NULL values are now reported to the callback as a NULL pointer
    rather than an empty string.</li>
}

chng {2000-06-03} {
<li>Added support for default values on columns of a table.</li>
<li>Improved test coverage.  Fixed a few obscure bugs found by the
improved tests.</li>
}

chng {2000-06-02} {
<li>All database files to be modified by an UPDATE, INSERT or DELETE are 
now locked before any changes are made to any files.  
This makes it safe (I think) to access
the same database simultaneously from multiple processes.</li>
<li>The code appears stable so we are now calling it "beta".</li>
}

chng {2000-06-01} {
<li>Better support for file locking so that two or more processes 
(or threads)
can access the same database simultaneously.  More work needed in
this area, though.</li>
}

chng {2000-05-31} {
<li>Added support for aggregate functions (Ex: <b>COUNT(*)</b>, <b>MIN(...)</b>)
to the SELECT statement.</li>
<li>Added support for <B>SELECT DISTINCT ...</B></li>
}

chng {2000-05-30} {
<li>Added the <b>LIKE</b> operator.</li>
<li>Added a <b>GLOB</b> operator: similar to <B>LIKE</B> 
but it uses Unix shell globbing wildcards instead of the '%' 
and '_' wildcards of SQL.</li>
<li>Added the <B>COPY</b> command patterned after 
[http://www.postgresql.org/ | PostgreSQL] so that SQLite
can now read the output of the <b>pg_dump</b> database dump utility
................................................................................
of PostgreSQL.</li>
<li>Added a <B>VACUUM</B> command that calls the 
<b>gdbm_reorganize()</b> function on the underlying database
files.</li>
<li>And many, many bug fixes...</li>
}

chng {2000-05-29} {
<li>Initial Public Release of Alpha code</li>

  When this is defined, the library does not respect the special database
  name ":memory:" (normally used to create an [in-memory database]). If 
  ":memory:" is passed to [sqlite3_open()], [sqlite3_open16()], or

}

COMPILE_OPTION {SQLITE_OMIT_MERGE_SORT} {
  Beginning with SQLite [version 3.7.8], large sort operations such as
  used by [CREATE INDEX] commands are implemented using an external
  merge sort rather than insertions into a B-Tree.  This results in better
  cache locality and an order-of-magnitude speed improvement for sorts that
  are larger than the filesystem cache.  On the other hand, the merge sort
  logic uses some code space and is slightly (1%) slower for [CREATE INDEX]
  on small tables.  The external merge sort can be disabled using this
  compile-time option.
}

COMPILE_OPTION {SQLITE_OMIT_OR_OPTIMIZATION} {
  This option disables the ability of SQLite to use an index together
  with terms of a WHERE clause connected by the OR operator.
