SQLite 3.13 was released today as the newest version of this widely-used and relied upon embedded SQL database library.

SQLite 3.13 integrates the Session Extension, which is used for generating change/patch-sets into a file for applying the same set of changes to another database with the same schema. This session extension can be used for merging changes from multiple users working off the same baseline database back into the original database and other use-cases where you may want to mege a "patch" of the changes to an original database. More details on SQLite's Session Extension can be found via this documentation page.

SQLite 3.13 also postpones I/O associated with TEMP files for as long as possible in hopes of being able to completely avoid that I/O, adds new options and commands to the shell, and offers various other improvements and bug fixes.

More details on SQLite 3.13 can be found via the announcement at SQLite.org.
