APSW 3.6.17-r1 is now available. The home page is at
http://code.google.com/p/apsw/ which includes full documentation, source and
binary distributions for Windows (Python 2.3 onwards including 3.0 & 3.1).
The opensource license used is the zlib/png license.

APSW is a wrapper around the SQLite embedded database that provides all
SQLite API functionality in Python.  It is not DBAPI compliant as it
provides SQLite semantics.  pysqlite provides DBAPI semantics.  You can see
the two approaches contrasted at

APSW has migrated from Subversion to Mercurial for source code control.
Hosting remains at Google Code

Updated a test due to VFS xUnlock errors now being ignored sometimes by
SQLite (SQLite ticket 3946).

The downloads page in the help didn’t mention the Windows Python 3.1 installer.

Running the test suite is now integrated into setup.py so you can do the
building and testing all in one go. Sample command line:

    $ python setup.py install test

The test suite will now check the functionality of the FTS3, RTree and ICU
extensions if they were included. (The Windows binary distribution includes
FTS3 and RTree by default.)

Fixed issue 55 where FTS3 was unintentionally omitted from the Windows
binary distribution.

Various documentation updates.
