</ul>
</p>

<H2>Status</h2>

<p>The current version of SQLite should be considered "alpha" software.
It is incomplete and is known to contain bugs.  The software is
subject to incompatible changes with each release.  You should not use
SQLite in its present form in production software.</p>

<p>The purpose of releasing SQLite before it is ready is to evoke
public comment and criticism of the software.  If you find bugs
or have any thoughts on how to make SQLite better, or would
like to contribute code or patches to SQLite, please join
the mailing (see below) and let us know.</p>

<p>SQLite has so far been tested only on RedHat 6.0 Linux.  But we
know of no reason why it will not work on any other Unix platform,
or on Windows95/98/NT.</p>

The SQLite code base is rapidly becoming usable.  Most of the commonly

commonly uses) are now supported.  There are currently no known

matter.)
One very large database (1M+ records in 50+ separate tables) has

correctly.  We are rapidly approaching a "beta" release, I think...</p>
