17:46 | Restructuring and generalizing analyze5.test. The whole script is currently disabled and will need to be reenabled prior to merging with trunk. (check-in: 31fcc706 user: drh tags: stat2-enhancement) | |

00:10 | Add the ability to use indices for constraints of the form "x IS NOT NULL" when sqlite_stat2 is available and most entries for column x are NULL. (check-in: 5d5bddd2 user: drh tags: stat2-enhancement) | |
