Changes for version 1.38_03

  • As of SQLite 3.7.15, SQLite's query optimizer was enhanced and the result order of a SELECT statement without an ORDER BY clause may be different from the one of the previous versions. If your applications or tests mistakenly depend on the arbitrary output order, they may be broken with this enhancement.
  • Updated to SQLite 3.7.17 (ISHIGAKI)
