newsitem {2017-02-10} {Release 3.17.0} {
SQLite [version 3.17.0] is a regularly scheduled maintenance release.
<p>
Most of the changes in this release are performance optimizations.
Optimizations to the [R-Tree extension] are especially noticeable.
<p>
In this release, the default size of the 
[lookside buffer] allocated for each database connection
is increased from 64,000 to 120,000 bytes.  This provides improved
performance on many common workloads in exchange for a small increase
in memory usage.
Applications that value a small memory footprint over raw speed
can change the lookaside buffer size back to its old value (or to zero)
using the [SQLITE_DEFAULT_LOOKASIDE] compile-time option, or the
[SQLITE_CONFIG_LOOKASIDE|sqlite3_config(SQLITE_CONFIG_LOOKASIDE)]
