  Version 3.5.5 changes over 8% of the core source code of SQLite in order
  to convert the internal virtual machine from a stack-based design into
  a register-based design.  This change will allow future optimizations
  and will avoid an entire class of stack overflow bugs that have caused
  problems in the past.  Even though this change is large, extensive testing

newsitem {2008-Feb-6} {Version 3.5.6} {
  Version 3.5.6 fixes a minor regression in 3.5.5 - a regression that
  had nothing to do with the massive change ove the virtual machine
  to a register-based design.
  No problems have been reported with the new virtual machine.  This
  release of SQLite is considered stable and ready for production use.

<title>SQLite Support Options</title>

<h2>SQLite Support Options</h2>


<h3>Mailing Lists</h3>
<p>Three separate mailing lists have been established to help support
SQLite:</p>


<ul>
<li><a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-announce">
sqlite-announce</a> - announcements of new
releases or significant developments.</li>
<li><a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-users">
sqlite-users</a> - general user discussion.</li>
<li><a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-dev">
sqlite-dev</a> - developer conversations.</li>
</ul>

<p>
Most users of SQLite will want to join the
<a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-announce">
sqlite-announce</a> list and many will want to join the
<a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-users">
sqlite-users</a> list.  The
<a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-dev">
sqlite-dev</a> list is more specialized and appeals to a narrower audience.
Off-site archives of the
<a href="http://sqlite.org:8080/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/sqlite-users">
sqlite-users</a> list are available at:
