<li>Added <em>experimental</em>
    support for the [journal_mode] PRAGMA and persistent journal.</li>
<li>[journal_mode | Journal mode PERSIST] is the default behavior in
    [locking_mode | exclusive locking mode].</li>
<li>Fix a performance regression on LEFT JOIN (see [ticket #3015])
    that was mistakenly introduced in [version 3.5.8].</li>
<li>Performance enhancement: Reengineer the internal routines used
    to interpret and render variable-length integers.</li>
<li>Fix a buffer-overrun problem in [sqlite3_mprintf()] which occurs
    when a string without a zero-terminator is passed to "%.*s".</li>
<li>Always convert IEEE floating point NaN values into NULL during
    processing.  ([Ticket #3060])</li>
<li>Make sure that when a connection blocks on a RESERVED lock that
    it is able to continue after the lock is released.  ([Ticket #3093])</li>
<li>The "configure" scripts should now automatically configure unix
    systems for large file support.  Improved error messages for
    when large files are encountered and large file support is disabled.</li>
<li>Avoid cache pages leaks following disk-full or I/O errors</li>
<li>And, many more minor bug fixes and performance enhancements....</li>

newsitem {2008-Apr-16} {Version 3.5.8} {
  Version 3.5.9 adds a new experimental [PRAGMA]: [journal_mode].
  Setting the journal mode to PERSIST can provide performance improvement
  on systems where deleting a file is expective.  The PERSIST journal
  mode is still considered experimental and should be used with caution
  pending further testing.

  Version 3.5.9 is intended to be the last stable release prior to
  version 3.6.0.  Version 3.6.0 will make incompatible changes to the
  [sqlite3_vfs] VFS layer in order to address deficiencies in the original
  design.  These incompatibilities will only users who write their own
  custom VFS layers (typically embedded device builders).  Workstation
  users will see no changes and there will be no changes in the front-end
  interface or file format.  The planned VFS changes will be much smaller
  than the changes that occurred on the 
  [34to35 | 3.4.2 to 3.5.0 transaction] that occurred last
  September.

  This release of SQLite is considered stable and ready for production use.
