chng {2017-08-31 (3.20.0)} {
<li> Added the LSM1 extension
<li> Added the stmt virtual table extension
<li> Enhancements to the [command-line shell]:
<ul>
<li> Add the ".cd" command.
<li> Enhance the ".schema" command to show the schema of all attached
     databases.
<li> Enhance ".tables" so that it shows the schema names for all attached
     if the name is anything other than "main".
<li> The ".import" command ignores an initial UTF-8 BOM.
</ul>
<li> Query planner enhancements:
<ul>
<li> When generating individual loops for each ORed term of an OR scan,
     move any constant WHERE expressions outside of the loop, as is 
     done for top-level loops.
<li> The query planner examines the values of bound parameters to help
     determine if a partial index is usable.
<li> When deciding between two plans with the same estimated cost, bias 
     the selection toward the one that does not use the sorter.
</ul>
<li> Add [SQLITE_STMTSTATUS_REPREPARE], [SQLITE_STMTSTATUS_RUN], 
     and [SQLITE_STMTSTATUS_MEMUSED] options for the
     [sqlite3_stmt_status()] interface.
<li> Provide eponymous virtual tables for
     [PRAGMA integrity_check], [PRAGMA quick_check], and
     [PRAGMA foreign_key_check].
<li> Add the -withoutnulls option to the [TCL interface eval method].
<li> Enhance the [sqlite3_analyzer.exe] utility program so that it shows
     the number of bytes of metadata on btree pages.
<li> The [SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_QPSG] run-time option and the
     [SQLITE_ENABLE_QPSG] compile-time option enable the
     [query planner stability guarantee].  See also ticket
     [https://www.sqlite.org/src/info/892fc34f173e99d8|892fc34f173e99d8]
<p><b>Bug Fixes:</b>
<li> Ensure that the query planner knows that any column of a 
     [flattening optimization|flattened] LEFT JOIN can be NULL even 
     if that column is labeled with "NOT NULL". Fix for ticket 
     [https://sqlite.org/src/info/892fc34f173e99d8|892fc34f173e99d8].
