Changes carried forward from version 3.10.0 (2016-01-06):
- Added support for LIKE, GLOB, and REGEXP operators on virtual tables.
- Added the colUsed field to sqlite3_index_info for use by
the sqlite3_module.xBestIndex method.
- Enhance the PRAGMA cache_spill statement to accept a 32-bit integer
parameter which is the threshold below which cache spilling is prohibited.
- On unix, if a symlink to a database file is opened, then the corresponding
journal files are based on the actual filename, not the symlink name.
- Added the "--transaction" option to sqldiff.
- Added the sqlite3_db_cacheflush() interface.
- Added the sqlite3_strlike() interface.
- When using memory-mapped I/O map the database file read-only so that stray pointers
and/or array overruns in the application cannot accidentally modify the database file.
- Added the experimental sqlite3_snapshot_get(), sqlite3_snapshot_open(),
and sqlite3_snapshot_free() interfaces. These are subject to change or removal in
a subsequent release.
- Enhance the 'utc' modifier in the date and time functions so that it is a no-op if
the date/time is known to already be in UTC. (This is not a compatibility break since
the behavior has long been documented as "undefined" in that case.)
- Added the json_group_array() and json_group_object() SQL functions in the

- Many small performance optimizations.

Enhancements to the command-line shell:
- Added the ".changes ON|OFF" and ".vfsinfo" dot-commands.
- Translate between MBCS and UTF8 when
running in cmd.exe on Windows.
Enhancements to makefiles:
- Added the --enable-editline and --enable-static-shell options
to the various autoconf-generated configure scripts.
- Omit all use of "awk" in the makefiles, to make building easier for MSVC users.
- Fix inconsistent integer to floating-point comparison operations that
could result in a corrupt index if the index is created on a table
column that contains both large integers and floating point values
of similar magnitude. Ticket
- Fix an infinite-loop in the query planner that could occur on
malformed common table expressions.
- Various bug fixes in the sqldiff tool.
