Written by Michael Larabel in Free Software on 13 February 2017 at 07:18 PM EST. 1 Comment
SQLite 3.17.0 was released today as the newest version of this widely-used embedded database library.

With many recent releases we've seen a focus on performance improvements and with SQLite 3.17 it is no different. SQLite 3.17 features approximately 25% better performance when using the R-Tree extension, which was achieved by using more compiler built-ins and other optimizations. SQLite 3.17 also features more general performance improvements and uses around 6.5% less CPU cycles.

Other new work in SQLite 3.17 includes a SHA1 extension, enhancements to some exisiting options, fixing some performance problems and potential stack overflows, allow some UPDATE operations to happen in a single-pass now rather than two passes, and other fixes and improvements.

Those making use of the SQLite database software can learn more about v3.17 via SQLite.org.
