pysqlite 2.5.0 released =======================
I'm pleased to announce the availability of pysqlite 2.5.0. This is a release with major new features.
Go to http://pysqlite.org/ for downloads, online documentation and reporting bugs.
What is pysqlite?
pysqlite is a DB-API 2.0-compliant database interface for SQLite.
SQLite is a in-process library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine.
pysqlite makes this powerful embedded SQL engine available to Python programmers. It stays compatible with the Python database API specification 2.0 as much as possible, but also exposes most of SQLite's native API, so that it is for example possible to create user-defined SQL functions and aggregates in Python.
If you need a relational database for your applications, or even small tools or helper scripts, pysqlite is often a good fit. It's easy to use, easy to deploy, and does not depend on any other Python libraries or platform libraries, except SQLite. SQLite itself is ported to most platforms you'd ever care about.
It's often a good alternative to MySQL, the Microsoft JET engine or the MSDE, without having any of their license and deployment issues.
pysqlite can be downloaded from http://pysqlite.org/ - Sources and Windows binaries for Python 2.5, 2.4 and Python 2.3 are available.
======= CHANGES =======
- - Windows binaries are now cross-built using mingw on Linux - - import various fixes from Python 2.6 version - - Connection has new method iterdump() that allows you to create a script file that can be used to clone a database - - the docs are now built using Sphinx and were imported from Python 2.6's sqlite3 module - - Connection.enable_load_extension(enabled) to allow/disallow extension loading. Allows you to use fulltext search extension, for example ;-) - - Give the remaining C functions used in multiple .c source files the pysqlite_ prefix. - - Release GIL during sqlite3_prepare() calls for better concurrency. - - Automatically download the SQLite amalgamation when building statically.
