SQLite Release 3.13.0 On 2016-05-18

  1. Postpone I/O associated with TEMP files for as long as possible, with the hope that the I/O can ultimately be avoided completely.
  2. Merged the session extension into trunk.
  3. Added the ".auth ON|OFF" command to the command-line shell.
  4. Added the "--indent" option to the ".schema" and ".fullschema" commands of the command-line shell, to turn on pretty-printing.
  5. Added the ".eqp full" option to the command-line shell, that does both EXPLAIN and EXPLAIN QUERY PLAN on each statement that is evaluated.
  6. Improved unicode filename handling in the command-line shell on Windows.
  7. Improved resistance against goofy query planner decisions caused by incomplete or incorrect modifications to the sqlite_stat1 table by the application.
  8. Added the sqlite3_db_config(db,SQLITE_DBCONFIG_ENABLE_LOAD_EXTENSION) interface which allows the sqlite3_load_extension() C-API to be enabled while keeping the load_extension() SQL function disabled for security.
  9. Change the temporary directory search algorithm on Unix to allow directories with write and execute permission, but without read permission, to serve as temporary directories. Apply this same standard to the "." fallback directory.

    Bug Fixes:

  10. Fix a problem with the multi-row one-pass DELETE optimization that was causing it to compute incorrect answers with a self-referential subquery in the WHERE clause. Fix for ticket dc6ebeda9396087
  11. Fix a possible segfault with DELETE when table is a rowid table with an INTEGER PRIMARY KEY and the WHERE clause contains a OR and the table has one or more indexes that are able to trigger the OR optimization, but none of the indexes reference any table columns other than the INTEGER PRIMARY KEY. Ticket 16c9801ceba49.
  12. When checking for the WHERE-clause push-down optimization, verify that all terms of the compound inner SELECT are non-aggregate, not just the last term. Fix for ticket f7f8c97e97597.
  13. Fix a locking race condition in Windows that can occur when two or more processes attempt to recover the same hot journal at the same time.

  14. SQLITE_SOURCE_ID: "2016-05-18 10:57:30 fc49f556e48970561d7ab6a2f24fdd7d9eb81ff2"
  15. SHA1 for sqlite3.c: 9b9171b1e6ce7a980e6b714e9c0d9112657ad552

    Bug fixes backported into patch release 3.8.0.1 (2013-08-29):

  16. Fix an off-by-one error that caused quoted empty string at the end of a CRNL-terminated line of CSV input to be misread by the command-line shell.
  17. Fix a query planner bug involving a LEFT JOIN with a BETWEEN or LIKE/GLOB constraint and then another INNER JOIN to the right that involves an OR constraint.
  18. Fix a query planner bug that could result in a segfault when querying tables with a UNIQUE or PRIMARY KEY constraint with more than four columns.

    Bug fixes backported into patch release 3.8.0 (2013-08-26):

  19. Add support for partial indexes
  20. Cut-over to the next generation query planner for faster and better query plans.
  21. The EXPLAIN QUERY PLAN output no longer shows an estimate of the number of rows generated by each loop in a join.
  22. Added the FTS4 notindexed option, allowing non-indexed columns in an FTS4 table.
  23. Added the SQLITE_STMTSTATUS_VM_STEP option to sqlite3_stmt_status().
  24. Added the cache_spill pragma.
  25. Added the query_only pragma.
  26. Added the defer_foreign_keys pragma and the sqlite3_db_status(db, SQLITE_DBSTATUS_DEFERRED_FKS,...) C-language interface.
  27. Added the "percentile()" function as a loadable extension in the ext/misc subdirectory of the source tree.
  28. Added the SQLITE_ALLOW_URI_AUTHORITY compile-time option.
  29. Add the sqlite3_cancel_auto_extension(X) interface.
  30. A running SELECT statement that lacks a FROM clause (or any other statement that never reads or writes from any database file) will not prevent a read transaction from closing.
  31. Add the SQLITE_DEFAULT_AUTOMATIC_INDEX compile-time option. Setting this option to 0 disables automatic indices by default.
  32. Issue an SQLITE_WARNING_AUTOINDEX warning on the SQLITE_CONFIG_LOG whenever the query planner uses an automatic index.
  33. Added the SQLITE_FTS3_MAX_EXPR_DEPTH compile-time option.
  34. Added an optional 5th parameter defining the collating sequence to the next_char() extension SQL function.
  35. The SQLITE_BUSY_SNAPSHOT extended error code is returned in WAL mode when a read transaction cannot be upgraded to a write transaction because the read is on an older snapshot.
  36. Enhancements to the sqlite3_analyzer utility program to provide size information separately for each individual index of a table, in addition to the aggregate size.
  37. Allow read transactions to be freely opened and closed by SQL statements run from within the implementation of application-defined SQL functions if the function is called by a SELECT statement that does not access any database table.
  38. Disable the use of posix_fallocate() on all (unix) systems unless the HAVE_POSIX_FALLOCATE compile-time option is used.
  39. Update the ".import" command in the command-line shell to support multi-line fields and correct RFC-4180 quoting and to issue warning and/or error messages if the input text is not strictly RFC-4180 compliant.
  40. Bug fix: In the unicode61 tokenizer of FTS4, treat all private code points as identifier symbols.
  41. Bug fix: Bare identifiers in ORDER BY clauses bind more tightly to output column names, but identifiers in expressions bind more tightly to input column names. Identifiers in GROUP BY clauses always prefer output column names, however.
  42. Bug fixes: Multiple problems in the legacy query optimizer were fixed by the move to NGQP.
