That depends on how you build it. Yes, their are monolithic versions of the DLL and EXE built by the SQLite3 team each time a new version of the SQLite3 code is released. This said, however, the **code** is the product. It is entirely possible to build a CLI which is not dependent on the version of the SQLite3 engine in use and where the very same CLI (SQLite.exe) can be used with any particular version of the SQLite3 database core that you desire. There is very little in the CLI that is dependent on the version of the SQLite3 database engine version.
