newsitem {2010-December-08} {Version 3.7.4} {
  SQLite [version 3.7.4] is a regularly scheduled bi-monthly maintenance
  release of SQLite.  Upgrading from [version 3.7.2] and [version 3.7.3]
  is optional.  Upgrading from all other SQLite releases is recommended.

  This release features [full-text search] enhancements.  The older 
  [FTS3] virtual table is still fully supported, and should also run
  faster.  In addition, the new [FTS4] virtual table is added.  FTS4
  follows the same syntax as FTS3 but holds additional metadata which
  facilitates some performance improvements and more advanced 
  [matchinfo()] output.  Look for further full-text search enhancements
  in subsequent releases.

  Also in this release, the [EXPLAIN QUERY PLAN] output has been enhanced
  and new documentation is provided so that application developers can
  more easily understand how SQLite is performing their queries.

  Thanks to account from the folks at [http://www.devio.us/], OpenBSD
  has been added to the list of platforms upon which we 
  [tested | test SQLite] prior to every release.  That list of platforms
  now includes:

  <ul>
  <li> Linux x86 &amp; x86_64
  <li> MacOS 10.5 &amp; 10.6
  <li> MacOS 10.2 PowerPC
  <li> WinXP and Win7
  <li> Android 2.2
  <li> OpenBSD 4.7
  </ul>

  The previous release of SQLite ([version 3.7.3]) has proven to be very
  robust.  The only serious issue discovered was
  [http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/80ba201079 | ticket 80ba201079] that
  describes an incorrect query result that can occur under very 
  unusual circumstances.  The ticket description contains details of the
  problem.  Suffice it to say here that the problem is very obscure and
  is unlikely to effect most applications and so upgrading is optional.
  The problem is fixed, of course, in this release.
