Sorry if this has been asked already; I couldn't find it in the forum.

When is the next release planned after 3.31.1?

My company needs an official release that incorporates the already-fixed recent CVE issues.

The sqlite developers do not track CVEs. See /forumpost/247d4d7888 for details.

Feature (.0) releases generally come out every three months, so we should be close to the next one.

If only there was a way for a corporate entity to express its needs to the maintainers in a concrete way... :)

an official release


I get the point of stability, but what's wrong with backporting the specific commits in the meantime? Fossil makes it easy:

cd ~/src/sqlite/trunk          # location of Fossil checkout of SQLite3 repo
fossil merge --cherrypick d09f8c36
fossil merge --cherrypick abc473fb
fossil merge --cherrypick 4a302b42c7
make -j11 && make test

These checkin IDs come from this post.

All three of these require specially-crafted SQL to exploit. If your company's product is accepting arbitrary SQL, why?

See also https://www.sqlite.org/src/info/8b12e95fec7ce6e0de82a for another example of why we have such a low opinion of CVEs.
