<li>Optimization: when doing an UPDATE on a table with [indexes on expressions],
    do not update the expression indexes if they do not refer to any of the columns
    of the table being updated.
<li>Added the [SQLITE_DBCONFIG_DEFENSIVE] option which disables the ability to 
    create corrupt database files using ordinary SQL.
<li>Added support for read-only [shadow tables] when the [SQLITE_DBCONFIG_DEFENSIVE]
    option is enabled.
<li>Added the [PRAGMA legacy_alter_table] command, which if enabled causes the
    [ALTER TABLE] command to behave like older version of SQLite (prior to
    version 3.25.0) for compatibility.
<li>Added [PRAGMA table_xinfo] that works just like [PRAGMA table_info]
    except thta is also shows hidden columns in virtual tables.
<li>Added the [https://sqlite.org/src/file/ext/misc/explain.c|explain virtual table]
    as a run-time loadable extension.
<li>Add a limit counter to the query planner to prevent excessive
    [sqlite3_prepare()] times for certain pathological SQL inputs.
<li>Added support for the [sqlite3_normalized_sql()] interface, when compiling
    with SQLITE_ENABLE_NORMALIZE.
<li>Enhanced triggers so that they can use [table-valued functions] that
    exist in schemas other than the schema where the trigger is defined.
<li>Enhancements to the [CLI]:
<ol type="a">
<li>Improvements to the ".help" command.
<li>The SQLITE_HISTORY environment variable, if it exists,
    specifies the name of the command-line editing history file
<li>The --deserialize option associated with opening a new database cause the
    database file to be read into memory and accessed using the
    [sqlite3_deserialize()] API. This simplifies running tests on a database
    without modifying the file on disk.
</ol>
<li>Enhancements to the [geopoly] extension:
<ol type="a">
<li>Aways stores polygons
    using the binary format, which is faster and uses less space.
<li>Added the [geopoly_regular()] function.
<li>Added the [geopoly_ccw()] function.
</ol>
<li>Enhancements to the [session] extension:
<ol type="a">
<li>Added the [SQLITE_CHANGESETAPPLY_INVERT] flag
<li>Added the [sqlite3changeset_start_v2()] interface and the
    [SQLITE_CHANGESETSTART_INVERT] flag.
<li>Added the 
    [https://sqlite.org/src/file/ext/session/changesetfuzz.c|changesetfuzz.c]
    test-case generator utility.
</ol>

<h2>The geopoly_ccw(J) Function</h2>

<p>The geopoly_ccw(J) function returns the polygon J with counter-clockwise (CCW) rotation.

<p>
[https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7946 | RFC-7946] requires that polygons use CCW rotation.
But the spec also observes that many legacy GeoJSON files do not following the spec and
contain polygons with clockwise (CW) rotation.  The geopoly_ccw() function is useful for
applications that are reading legacy GeoJSON scripts.  If the input to geopoly_ccw() is
a correctly-formatted polygon, then no changes are made.  However, if the circulation of
the input polygon is backwards, then geopoly_ccw() reverses the circulation order so that
it conforms to the spec and so that it will work correctly with the Geopoly module.
