chng {2010 October 15 (3.7.3)} {
<li> Added the [sqlite3_create_function_v2()] interface that includes a
     destructor callback.
<li> Added support for [custom r-tree queries] using application-supplied
     callback routines to define the boundary of the query region.
<li> The default page cache strives more diligently to avoid using memory
     beyond what is allocated to it by [SQLITE_CONFIG_PAGECACHE].  Or if
     using page cache is allocating from the heap, it strives to avoid
     going over the [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit64()], even if
     [SQLITE_ENABLE_MEMORY_MANAGEMENT] is not set.
<li> Added the [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit64()] interface as a replacement for
     [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit()].

chng {2010 August 24 (3.7.2)} {
<li> Fix an <a href="http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/5e10420e8d">
     old and very obscure bug</a> that can lead to corruption of the
     database [free-page list] when [incremental_vacuum] is used.

<li> Added the [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit64()] interface as a replacement for
     [sqlite3_soft_heap_limit()].
<li> The [ANALYZE] command now gathers statistics on tables even if they 
     have no indices.
<li> Tweaks to the query planner to help it do a better job of finding the
     most efficient query plan for each query.
<li> Enhanced the internal text-to-numeric conversion routines so that they
     work with UTF8 or UTF16, thereby avoiding some UTF16-to-UTF8 text
     conversions.
<li> Fix a problem that was causing excess memory usage with large [WAL]
     transactions in win32 systems.
<li> The interface between the VDBE and B-Tree layer is enhances such that
     the VDBE provides hints to the B-Tree layer letting the B-Tree layer
     know when it is safe to use hashing instead of b-trees for transient
     tables.
<li> Miscellaneous documentation enhancements.
