Finding the SQLite version for a feature
(1) By Jeff M (jeffrey) on 2022-01-25 06:01:49 [link] [source]
Given a certain feature, how can I find the SQLite version number where that feature was introduced?
In particular, I want to know when the ADD COLUMN syntax was added to the ALTER TABLE command. I need to determine if my iOS app users will have that version or newer.

You can search for "ADD COLUMN" on that page: https://sqlite.org/changes.html

That actually works, and identifies
Nice. I wish it worked for all features and significant improvements.
Given that the feature was added in 2005, and the iPhone was first released in 2007, I don't think you're going to have to have your users check it.

It's unfortunately not something that is tracked.
It's been requested before, but that did not happen.
Searching the release notes is indeed the next best thing.
And there's always finding the code for that feature, and go back to Fossil...

You can search the FOSSIL.
fossil sea add column ends the list with the earliest relevant entry:
