      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.6.16</li>
      <li>Check the autocommit mode of the connection to which a transaction is bound
        during the disposal of the transaction.&nbsp; If autocommit is enabled, then the
        database has already rolled back the transaction and we don&#39;t need to do it
        during dispose, and can quietly ignore the step without throwing an error.</li>
      <li>Eliminated the mergebin step altogether.&nbsp; It was developed primarily to
        merge the Compact Framework binaries together, but since we&#39;re not doing that
        anymore, its use is limited.&nbsp; Its non-standard method of merging a binary
        on the desktop framework is redundant as well.&nbsp; The desktop binary now
        hard-links to MSCOREE, but as of Windows XP, this was redundant as well since XP
        and beyond automatically attempt to load MSCOREE on startup when a DLL has a
        .NET header.</li>
      <li>More improvements to the test.exe program for running the tests against Sql
        Server for comparison purposes.</li>

      <li>Fixed SQLiteDataReader.GetDecimal() processing and parsing of decimal values for cases when SQLite returns things like "1.0e-05" instead of "0.0001"</li>
    <p><b> - October 3, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Throw a NotSupported exception in the EF Sql Gen code instead of parsing
        illegal SQL during an update/insert/delete where no primary key is defined.</li>
      <li>Fixed the Compact Framework interop library.&nbsp; Since the linker flag
        /subsystem had no version specified, it was causing a problem for many CE-based
      <li>Incorporated SQLite patch for ticket
        <a href="">#3387</a> and reverted
        out the vfs override code I added in build 59 to work around this problem.</li>
      <li>Fixed a designer issue when creating a new table from the Server Explorer.&nbsp;
        After initially saving it, if you then continued to edit it and tried to save it
        again, it would generate the change SQL using the old temporary table name
        rather than the new name.</li>
    <p><b> - September 22, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.6.3.&nbsp; Solves
        a couple different EF issues that were either giving inconsistent results or
        crashing the engine.</li>
      <li>Fixed the parsing of literal binaries in the EF SqlGen code.&nbsp; SQLite now
        passes nearly all the testcases in
        <a href="">Microsoft's EF Query Samples</a> application --
        the exception being the <i>datetimeoffset </i>and<i> time</i> constants tests, and tests
        that use the <i>APPLY </i>keyword which are unsupported for now.</li>
      <li>Revamped the Compact Framework mixed-mode assembly.&nbsp; Tired of playing cat
        and mouse with the Compact Framework&#39;s support for mixed-mode assemblies.&nbsp;
        The CF build now requires that you distribute both the System.Data.SQLite
        library and the paired SQLite.Interop.XXX library.&nbsp;&nbsp; The XXX denotes
        the build number of the library.</li>
      <li>Implemented a workaround for Vista&#39;s overzealous caching by turning off
        FILE_FLAG_RANDOM_ACCESS for OS versions above XP.&nbsp; This is implemented
        as a custom (default override) VFS in the interop.c file, so no changes are made
        to the SQLite source code.</li>
      <li>Fixed some registry issues in the designer install.exe, which prevented some
        design-time stuff from working on the Compact Framework when .NET 3.5 was
    <p><b> - August 30, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.6.2.&nbsp; If only I&#39;d waited one more day to release
        57!&nbsp; Several LINQ issues have been resolved with this engine release
        relating to deeply-nested subqueries that the EF SqlGen creates.</li>
      <li>Fixed the Rollback SQLiteConnection event to not require a connection be
        opened first.</li>
    <p><b> - August 29, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Compiled against 3.6.1 with checkin
        <a href="">#3300</a> resolved,
        which fixes an Entity Framework bug I was seeing.&nbsp; I currently have 3 other
        tickets out on the engine, which are not yet resolved and relate to EF.</li>
      <li>Fixed decimal types to store and fetch using InvariantCulture.&nbsp; If you&#39;re
        using decimal datatypes in your database and were affected by the 56 release,
        please issue an UPDATE &lt;table&gt; SET &lt;column&gt; = REPLACE(&lt;column&gt;, &#39;,&#39;, &#39;.&#39;);&nbsp;
        to fix the decimal separators.&nbsp; Apologies for not testing that more
        thoroughly before releasing 56.</li>
      <li>Too many LINQ fixes to list.&nbsp; Fixed views so they generate,
        fixed the LIMIT clause, implemented additional functionality and removed unnecessary code.</li>
      <li>Fixed foreign key names in the designer so viewing the SQL script on a new
        unsaved table after renaming it in the properties toolwindow will reflect in the
        script properly.</li>
      <li>Fixed the Update and Commit events on SQLiteConnection so they don&#39;t require
        the connection to be opened first.</li>
      <li>Fixed userdef aggregate functions so they play nice with each other when
        appearing multiple times in the same statement.</li>
      <li>Fixed the editing and saving of default values in the table designer.</li>
      <li>Fixed ForeignKeys schema to support multi-column foreign keys.&nbsp; Also
        hacked support for them in the table designer, provided two foreign keys in the
        designer have the same name and reference the same foreign table and different
        columns.&nbsp; Will implement first-class support for this in the next release.</li>
    <p><b> - August 11, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the table designer when designing new tables, wherein you had to
        save the table first before being able to create indexes and foreign keys.</li>
      <li>Tweaks to decimal type handling.&nbsp; The &#39;decimal&#39; type can&#39;t be represented
        by Int64 or Double (without loss of precision) in SQLite, so we have to fudge it
        by treating it like a string and converting it back and forth in the provider.&nbsp;
        Unfortunately backing it to the db as a string causes sorting problems.&nbsp;
        See <a href="">this
        for details on using a custom collation sequence to overcome the sorting issue arising from this patch.</li>
      <li>Minor tweaks and bugfixes to the test program and the provider.</li>
      <li>More adjustments to make the managed-only version of the provider run and pass
        all tests on Mono.</li>
      <li>LINQ to Entities bits heavily updated and compiled against VS2008 SP1 RTM.&nbsp; SQLite
        LINQ support is still considered beta.</li>
    <p><b> - August 6, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.6.1</li>
      <li>Added support for the user-contributed extension-functions at
        <a href=""></a>.&nbsp;
        Feel free to override any of them with your own implementation.&nbsp; The new
        functions are: <i>acos, asin, atan, atn2, atan2, acosh, asinh, atanh,
        difference, degrees, radians, cos, sin, tan, cot, cosh, sinh, tanh, coth, exp,
        log, log10, power, sign, sqrt, square, ceil, floor, pi, replicate, charindex,
        leftstr, rightstr, reverse, proper, padl, padr, padc, strfilter,</i> and
        aggregates <i>stdev, variance, mode, median, lower_quartile, upper_quartile.</i></li>
      <li>Moved the last_rows_affected() function to the C extension library.</li>
      <li>Added a new class, SQLiteFunctionEx which extends SQLiteFunction and adds the
        ability for a user-defined function to get the collating sequence during the
        Invoke/Step methods.&nbsp; User-defined functions can use the collating sequence
        as a helper to compare values.</li>
      <li>When registering user-defined collation sequences and functions, the provider
        will now register both a UTF8 and a UTF16 version instead of just UTF8.</li>
      <li>Revamped connection pooling and added static ClearPool() and ClearAllPools()
        functions to SQLiteConnection.&nbsp; Behavior of the pool and its clearing
        mechanics match SqlClient.</li>
      <li>Fixed connections going to the pool so that any unfinalized lingering commands
        from un-collected datareaders are automatically reset and any lurking
        transactions made on the connection are rolled back.</li>
      <li>Transaction isolation levels are now partially supported.&nbsp; Serializable
        is the default, which obtains read/write locks immediately -- this is compatible
        with previous releases of the provider.&nbsp; Unspecified will default to
        whatever the default isolation mode is set to, and ReadCommitted will cause a
        deferred lock to be obtained.&nbsp; No other values are legal.</li>
      <li>Revamped the test.exe program.&nbsp; It&#39;s now an interactive GUI application.&nbsp;
        Easier for me to add tests now.</li>
      <li>Tweaks to the VS designer package and installer.</li>
      <li>More adjustments to the internal SQLite3.Prepare() method to account for both
        kinds of lock errors when retrying.</li>
      <li>Stripped a lot of unnecessary interop() calls and replaced with base sqlite calls.&nbsp;
        Revamped most of UnsafeNativeMethods to make it easier to port the code.</li>
      <li>Rerigged internal callbacks for userdef functions and other native to managed
        callbacks.&nbsp; More portable this way.</li>
      <li>Source can now can be compiled with the SQLITE_STANDARD preprocessor symbol to
        force the wrapper to use the stock sqlite3 library.&nbsp; Some functionality is
        missing, but its minimal.&nbsp; None of the precompiled binaries are compiled
        using this setting, but its useful for testing portability.</li>
      <li>Added &quot;boolean&quot; and a couple other missing datatypes to the &quot;DataTypes&quot; schema
        xml file.&nbsp; Used by the VS designer when displaying tables and querying.</li>
      <li>Added a new connection string option &quot;Read Only&quot;.&nbsp; When set to True, the
        database will be opened in read-only mode.</li>
      <li>Added a new connection string option &quot;Max Pool Size&quot; to set the maximum size
        of the connection pool for a given db file connection.</li>
      <li>Added a new connection string option &quot;Default IsolationLevel&quot; to set the
        default isolation level of transactions.&nbsp; Possible values are Serializable and
      <li>Added a new connection string option &quot;URI&quot; as an optional parameter for
        compatibility with other ports of the provider.</li>
    <p><b> - July 25, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Fixed the setup project, which somehow &quot;forgot&quot; to include all the binaries in
        the 53 release.</li>
      <li>Fixed a crash in the table designer when creating a new table and tabbing past
        the &quot;Allow Nulls&quot; cell in the grid while creating a new column.</li>
      <li>Fixed a mostly-benign bug in SQLiteDataReader&#39;s GetEnumerator, which failed to
        pass along a flag to the underyling DbEnumerator it creates.&nbsp; This one&#39;s
        been around since day 1 and nobody&#39;s noticed it in all these years.</li>
      <li>Added a new connection string parameter &quot;Journal Mode&quot; that allows you to set
        the SQLite journal mode to Delete, Persist or Off.</li>
    <p><b> - July 24, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Enabled sqlite_load_extension</li>
      <li>Added retry/timeout code to SQLite3.Prepare() when preparing statements for
        execution and a SQLITE_BUSY error occurs.</li>
      <li>Added a new schema to SQLiteConnection.GetSchema() called <i>Triggers</i>.&nbsp;
        Used to retrieve the trigger(s) associated with a database and/or table/view.</li>
      <li>Extensive updates to table/view editing capabilities inside Visual Studio&#39;s
        Server Explorer.&nbsp; The program now parses and lets you edit CHECK constraints and
        triggers on a table, as well as define triggers on views.&nbsp; Experimental
        still, so e-mail me if you have issues.</li>
      <li>Minor bugfix to the ViewColumns schema to return the proper base column name
        for a view that aliases a column.</li>
      <li>Fixed the insert/update/delete DML support in the Linq module.</li>
      <li>Changed the behavior of SQLiteCommand to allow a transaction to be set even if
        the command hasn&#39;t been associated with a connection yet.</li>
    <p><b> - July 16, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.6.0</li>
      <li>Added a lot of previously-missing exports to the DEF file for the
        native library.</li>
      <li>Fixed SQLiteDataReader to check for an invalid connection before operating on
        an open cursor.</li>
      <li>Implemented the Cancel() function of SQLiteCommand to cancel an active reader.</li>
      <li>Added beta table and view designers to the Visual Studio Server Explorer.&nbsp; You can now
        edit/create tables and views, manage indexes and foreign keys from Visual Studio.&nbsp;
        This feature is still undergoing testing so use at your own risk!</li>
      <li>Fixed the Server Explorer so VS2005 users can once again right-click tables
        and views and open the table data.</li>
      <li>Added some new interop code to assist in returning more metadata not normally
        available through the SQLite API.&nbsp; Specifically, index column sort modes
        and collating sequences.&nbsp; Also added code to detect (but not parse) CHECK
        constraints, so the table designer can pop up a warning when editing a table
        with these constraints.&nbsp; Since I can&#39;t currently parse them.</li>
      <li>Lots of LINQ SQL generation improvements and fixes.</li>
      <li>Made some progress cleaning up and fixing up the schema definitions and
        manifests for EdmGen.</li>
      <li>Added a built-in SQLiteFunction called last_rows_affected() which can be
        called from SQL to get the number of rows affected by the last update/insert
        operation on the connection.&nbsp; This is roughly equivalent to Sql Server&#39;s
        @@ROWCOUNT variable.</li>
    <p><b> - July 1, 2008</b></p>
      <li><b>VS2008 SP1 Beta1 LINQ Support</b></li>
      <li>Added experimental Entity Framework support in a new library,
        System.Data.SQLite.Linq.&nbsp; Some things work, some don&#39;t.&nbsp; I haven&#39;t
        finished rigging everything up yet.&nbsp; The core library remains stable.&nbsp;
        All LINQ-specific code is completely separate from the core.</li>
      <li>&nbsp;Added some columns to several existing schemas to support some of the
        EDM framework stuff.</li>
      <li>Minor tweaks to the factory to better support dynamic loading of the Linq
        extension library for SQLite.</li>
      <li>SQLite&#39;s busy handler was interfering with the provider&#39;s busy handling
        mechanism, so its been disabled.</li>
    <p><b> - June 27, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Fixed some lingering dispose issues and race conditions when some objects were finalized.</li>
      <li>Fixed the SQLiteConvert.Split() routine to be a little smarter when splitting
        strings, which solves the quoted data source filename problem.</li>
      <li>Enhanced the mergebin utility to work around the strong name validation bug on
        the Compact Framework.&nbsp; The old workaround kludged the DLL and caused WM6.1
        to fail to load it.&nbsp; This new solution is permanent and no longer kludges
        the DLL.</li>
    <p><b> - May 28, 2008</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.5.9</li>
      <li>Fixed schema problems when querying the TEMP catalog.</li>

        was preventing DbCommandBuilder from using GUID's and BLOB's as primary keys.</li>
      <li>Fix rollover issue with SQLite3.Reset() using TickCount.</li>
      <li>Fixed SQLiteDataReader to dispose of its command (if called for) before
        closing the connection (when flagged to do so) instead of the other way around.</li>
      <li>Fixed a DbNull error when retrieving items not backed by a table schema.</li>
      <li>Fixed foreign key constraint parsing bug.</li>
      <li>Added FailIfMissing property to the SQLiteConnectionStringBuilder.</li>
      <li>Converted the source projects to Visual Studio 2008.</li>
    <p><b> - December 28, 2007</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.5.4</li>
      <li>Calling SQLiteDataReader.GetFieldType() on a column with no schema information
        and whos first row is initially NULL now returns type Object instead of type DbNull.</li>
      <li>Added support for a new DateTime type, JulianDay.&nbsp; SQLite uses Julian dates
      <li>Added a new connection string parameter "Default Timeout" and a corresponding
        method on the SQLiteConnection object to change the default command timeout.&nbsp;
        This is especially useful for changing the timeout on transactions, which use SQLiteCommand
        objects internally and have no ADO.NET-friendly way to adjust the command timeout
        on those commands.</li>
      <li>FTS1 and FTS2 modules were removed from the codebase.&nbsp; Please upgrade all
        full-text indexes to use the FTS3 module.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - December 10, 2007</b></p>
      <li>Fixed yet one more bug when closing a database with unfinalized command objects</li>
      <li>Fixed the DataReader's GetFieldType function when dealing with untyped SQLite affinities</li>
    <p><b> - December 5, 2007</b></p>
      <li>Fixed a leftover bug from the codemerge with SQLite 3.5.3 that failed to close a database.</li>
      <li>Fixed the broken Compact Framework distribution binary.</li>
      <li>SQLite 3.5.x changed some internal infrastructure pieces in the encryption interface
        which I didn't catch initially.&nbsp; Fixed.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - December 4, 2007</b></p>
      <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.5.3</li>
      <li>Added installer support for Visual Studio 2008.&nbsp; Code is still using the
        VS2005 SDK so one or two bells and whistles are missing, but nothing significant.</li>
      <li>This is the last version that the FTS1 and FTS2 extensions will appear.&nbsp;
        Everyone should rebuild their fulltext indexes using the new FTS3 module.&nbsp;
        FTS1 and FTS2 suffer from a design flaw that could cause database corruption with
        certain vacuum operations.</li>
      <li>Fixed pooled connections so they rollback any outstanding transactions before
        going to the pool.&nbsp; </li>
      <li>Fixed the unintended breaking of the TYPES keyword, and mis-typing of untyped
        or indeterminate column types. </li>
      <li>Assert a FileIOPermission() requirement in the static SQLiteFunction constructor.
      <li>The CE-only SQLiteFunction.RegisterFunction() is now available on the desktop
        platform for dynamic registration of functions.&nbsp; You must still close and re-open
        a connection in order for the new function to be seen by a connection.</li>
      <li>Fixed the "database is locked" errors by implementing behavioral changes in the
        interop.c file for SQLite.&nbsp; Closing a database force-finalizes any prepared
        statements on the database to ensure the connection is fully closed.&nbsp; This
        was rather tricky because the GC thread could still be finalizing statements itself.
      <li>Modifed the mergebin utility to help circumvent a long-standing strong name verification
        bug in the Compact Framework.</li>
    <p><b> - September 30, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Fixed faulty logic in type discovery code when using SQLiteDataReader.GetValue().</li>
      <li>Fixed Connection.Open() bug when dealing with :memory: databases.</li>
      <li>Fixed SQLiteCommand.ExecuteScalar() to return a properly-typed value.</li>
      <li>Added support for SQLiteParameter.ResetDbType().</li>
      <li>Added test cases for rigid and flexible type testing.</li>
    <p><b> - September 25, 2007</b></p>
    <li><strong>Breaking change in GetSchema("Indexes") </strong>-- MetaDataCollections
      restrictions and identifier parts counts were wrong for this schema and I was using
      the wrong final parameter as the final restriction.&nbsp; Meaning, if you use the
      Indexes schema and are querying for a specific index the array should now be {catalog,
      null, table, index } instead of {catalog, null, table, null, index}</li>
      <li>Fixed some errors in the encryption module, most notably when a non-default page
        size is specified in the connection string.</li>
      <li>Fixed SQLiteDataReader to better handle type-less usage scenarios, which also
        fixes problems with null values and datetimes.</li>
      <li>Fixed the leftover temp files problem on WinCE </li>
      <li>Added connection pooling.&nbsp; The default is disabled for now, but may change
      in the future.&nbsp; Set "Pooling=True" in the connection string to enable it. </li>
      <li>Sped up SQLiteConnection.Open() considerably.</li>
      <li>Added some more robust cleanup code regarding SQLiteFunctions.</li>
      <li>Minor additions to the code to allow for future LINQ integration into the main
      <li>Fixed a long-standing bug in the Open() command of SQLiteConnection which failed
      to honor the documented default behavior of the SQLite.NET provider to open the
      database in "Synchronous=Normal" mode.&nbsp; The default was "Full". </li>
      <li>If Open() fails, it no longer sets the connection state to Broken.&nbsp; It instead
        reverts back to Closed, and cleans up after itself.</li>
      <li>Added several new parameters to the ConnectionString for setting max page count,
        legacy file format, and another called FailIfMissing to raise an error rather than
        create the database file automatically if it does not already exist.</li>
      <li>Fixed some designer toolbox references to the wrong version of the SQLite.Designer</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the mergebin utility with regards to COR20 metadata rowsize computations.&nbsp;
      <li>Minor documentation corrections &nbsp;&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - July 21, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.4.1</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteConnection.Open() which threw the wrong kind of error in
        the wrong kind of way when a database file could not be opened or created.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Small enhancements to the TYPES keyword, and added documentation for it in the
        help file.</li>
      <li>Hopefully fixed the occasional SQLITE_BUSY errors that cropped up when starting
        a transaction.&nbsp; Usually occurred in high-contention scenarios, and the underlying
        SQLite engine bypasses the busy handler in this scenario to return immediately.</li>
    <p><b> - June 21, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.4.0</li>
      <li>Fixed a reuse bug in the SQLiteDataAdapter in conjunction with the SQLiteCommandBuilder.&nbsp;
      It's been there unnoticed for more than a year, so it looks like most folks never
      encountered it. </li>
      <li>Fixed an event handler bug in SQLiteCommandBuilder in which it could fail to unlatch
        from the DataAdapter when reused.&nbsp; Relates to the previous bugfix.</li>
      <li>Fixed a double-dispose bug in SQLiteStatement that triggered a SQLiteException.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - June 1, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.17</li>
      <li>Changed the SQLiteFunction static constructor so it only enumerates loaded modules
        that have referenced the SQLite assembly, which hopefully should cut down dramatically
        the time it takes for that function to execute.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Added the FTS2 full-text search extension to the project.&nbsp; Look for FTS1
        to disappear within the next couple of revisions.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug introduced with the finalizers that triggered an error when statements
        ended with a semi-colon or had other non-parsable comments at the end of a statement&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Fixed an intermittent multi-threaded race condition between the garbage collector
        thread and the main application thread which lead to an occasional SQLITE_MISUSE
      <li>Fixed another issue relating to SQLite's inherent typelessness when dealing with
        aggregate functions which could return Int64 or Double or even String for a given
        row depending on what was aggregated.</li>
      <li>Remembered to recompile the DDEX portion of the engine this time, so Compact Framework
        users can once again use the design-time functionality</li>
    <p><b> - April 23, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.16</li>
      <li>Second go at implementing proper finalizers to cleanup after folks who've forgotten to Dispose() of the SQLite objects</li>
      <li>Enhanced GetSchema(IndexColumns) to provide numeric scale and precision values</li>
      <li>Fixed the column ordinals in GetSchema(IndexColumns) to report the ordinal of the column in the index, not the table</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug whereby parameters named with an empty string (such as String.Empty) were treated like a named parameter instead of an unnamed parameter</li>
    <p><b> - January 31, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.12</li>
      <li>Lots of new code to handle misuse of the library.&nbsp; Implemented finalizers
        where it made sense, fixed numerous garbage collector issues when objects are not
        disposed properly, &nbsp;fixed some object lifetime issues, etc.</li>
      <li>A failed Commit() on a transaction no longer leaves the transaction in an unusable
    <p><b> - January 11, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Fixed a really dumb mistake that for some reason didn't trigger any errors in
      the testcases, whereby commands when associated with a connection were not adding
      or removing themselves from an internal list of commands for that connection --
      causing a "database is locked" error when trying to close the connection.</li>
    <p><b> - January 10, 2007</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.10</li>
      <li>Fixed a multi-threaded race condition bug in the garbage collector when commands
        and/or connections are not properly disposed by the user.</li>
      <li>Switched the encryption's internal deallocation code to use sqlite's built-in
        aux functions instead of modifying the pager.c source to free the crypt block.&nbsp;
        This eliminates the last of the code changes the provider makes to the original
        sqlite engine sources.&nbsp; Props to Ralf Junker for pointing that out.</li>
    <p><b> - November 22, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed a bug when using CommandBehavior.KeyInfo whereby integer primary key columns may be duplicated in the results. </li>
      <li>Enhanced the CommandBuilder so that update/delete statements are optimized when the affected table contains unique constraints and
      a primary key is present.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the DataReader when used in conjunction with CommandBehavior.CloseConnection.</li></ul>
    <p><b> - November 19, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Added support for CommandBehavior.KeyInfo.&nbsp;
      When specified in a query, additional column(s) will be returned describing the
      key(s) defined for the table(s) selected in the query.&nbsp; This is optimized when
      INTEGER PRIMARY KEY is set for the given tables, but does additional work for other
      kinds of primary keys.</li>
      <li>Removed the default values from SQLiteDataReader.GetTableSchema(), to better follow
        Sql Server's pattern and suppress schema errors when loading the records into a
      <li>Allow integers to implicitly convert to double/decimal/single.</li></ul>
    <p><b> - October 25, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Added support for LONGVARCHAR, SMALLDATE and SMALLDATETIME. These were actually added in but were undocumented.</li>
    <li>Fixed the embedded helpfile which was accidentally built from old sources. </li>
    <li>Fixed an unfortunate re-entry of a bug in the .36 codebase that caused the provider to "forget" about commands on a connection under certain circumstances.</li>
    <p><b> - October 23, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.8, including support for full-text search via the FTS1
      extension.&nbsp;</li><li>Fixed a bug retrieving data types when UseUtf16Encoding is true. Side-effect of further merging the common code between the two base classes.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug with System.Transactions whereby a connection closed/disposed within
        a transaction scope is rolled back and cannot be committed.</li>
      <li>Added more error checking and reporting to transactions to help user's isolate
        the source of transaction failures.</li>
      <li>Implemented a workaround for a Compact Framework issue regarding strong-named
        assemblies containing a PE section with a raw size less than the virtual size.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - September 12, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed the TYPES keyword to work when UseUTF16Encoding is true.</li>
    <li>Fix another bug revealed in regarding infinite loops when the 2nd or subsequent statements of a semi-colon separated command cannot be parsed.</li>
      <li>Updated the help documentation.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - September 10, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed an infinite loop bug in SQLiteCommand caused when multiple semi-colon separated
      statements in a single command are executed via datareader and one of the statements
      contains a syntax error preventing it from being prepared.&nbsp;</li><li>Added the TYPES preparser keyword to be placed before a SELECT statement to
    aid the wrapper in converting expressions in a subsequent select clause into more
    robust types.&nbsp; Documentation yet to be integrated, but available on the forums.</li>
      <li>Added a new connectionstring parameter "BinaryGUID=true/false" (default is "true").&nbsp;
        When true, guid types are stored in the database as binary blobs to save space.&nbsp;
        Binary has been the default format since but this parameter eases backward
    <p><b> - September 4, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteParameterCollection.RemoveAt(namedparam)</li>
    <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteDataReader introduced in 1.0.30 that broke DateTimes using the Ticks option in the connection string.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the recent changes to guid behavior wherein using a datareader's
        indexer to fetch a guid from a column containing both binary and text guids would
        sometimes return a byte array instead of a guid.</li>
      <li>Enacted a workaround involving typed datasets in Compact Framework projects in
        which it took an excessive amount of time to open a form and generated a lot of
        temporary files in the user's Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\8.0\Assembly
        References folder.</li>
     <p><b> - August 21, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.7</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteConnection that caused it to "forget" about commands bound
      to it and occasionally throw an error when a database is closed and opened repeatedly.&nbsp;
<p><b> - August 6, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Added AllowPartiallyTrustedCallers attribute to the assembly</li><li>Added the missing "nchar" type</li>
      <li>Added support for binary Guid's.&nbsp; Guids are now stored as binary by default
        when using parameterized queries.&nbsp; Text guids are still fully supported.</li>
      <li>Fixed a TransactionScope() error that caused the transaction not to be completed.</li>
      <li>Enhanced parameter names so that if they are added to the Parameters collection
        without their prefix character (@ : or $) they are still properly mapped.&nbsp;</li>
        <p><b> - July 16, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Re-applied the view parsing bugfix in that was accidentally reverted
      out of the 30 build.</li><li>Fixed SQLiteCommand.ExecuteScalar() to return null instead of DbNull.Value
    when no rows were returned.</li>
      <li>Design-time installer now installs the package-based designer on full Visual Studio
        versions.&nbsp; Express editions continue to use the packageless designer.</li>
      <li>In Visual Studio (not Express), you can now right-click a SQLite connection in
        the Server Explorer and vacuum the database and change the encryption password.</li>
    <p><b> - July 2, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.6</li>
      <li>Added support for the |DataDirectory| keyword in the Data Source filename string.&nbsp;
      <li>Added hook notification support to SQLiteConnection.&nbsp; Specifically, there
      are three new events on the SQLiteConnection object which are raised when an update/insert/delete
      occurs and when transactions are committed and rolled back.</li><li>Changed SQLiteTransaction to default to BEGIN IMMEDIATE instead of just BEGIN,
    which solves a multithreaded race condition.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Changed SQLiteDataReader to better support SQLite's typelessness.&nbsp; The data
        reader no longer caches column affinity, but re-evaluates it for each column/row.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in Prepare() which caused an intermittant fault due to the code accessing
        the memory of an unpinned variable.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Fixed a multithreaded lock-retry bug in in SQLiteConnection.Open() and in
    SQLiteTransaction, which failed to use a command timeout before giving up.</li>

    <p><b> - May 16, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed a bug in the Views schema information which caused multi-line view definition statements not to be parsed</li>
    <li>Fixed a parsing bug in SQLiteDataReader.GetSchemaTable() to account for numeric(x,y) datatypes with specified precision and scale</li>
    <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteConnection.Open() which tried to automatically enlist in an ambient transaction but had not yet set the state of the database to Opened, thereby causing a transaction fault</li>
    <li>Changed SQLiteException to inherit from DbException on the full framework</li>
    <p><b> - April 14, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.5</li>
      <li>You can now specify a relative path in the Compact Framework's "Data Source" by
        prefixing the file with ".\".&nbsp; i.e. "Data Source=.\\mydb.db3"</li>
      <li>Several more changes and enhancements to schemas for better compatibility.</li>
      <li>Fixed several bugs with the 64-bit builds of the provider.&nbsp; The x64 binary
        is now optimized.</li>
      <li>Design-time installer now tries to install the 64-bit builds into the GAC along
        with the 32-bit build.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the SQLiteDataReader.GetSchemaTable() function when used with tables
        containing apostrophes.</li>
      <li>Fixed an XSD-related bug whereby the XSD utility was unable to locate the provider
        and could not generate typed datasets.</li>
      <li>Added NTEXT and STRING datatypes to the list of recognized keywords (used for
        schema retrieval).</li>
      <li>Due to the XSD bug and other potential problems related to external build utilities,
        changes to the installation of the designer have had to be made.&nbsp; The installer
        used to write the DbProviderFactories XML into the devenv.exe.config file and its
        express cousins, but now has to write instead to the machine.config.</li>
      <li>Installer writes to both the 32-bit machine.config and the 64-bit machine.config
        if it exists.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - February 28, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed a bug when doing data binding in Compact Framework projects that prevented
      you from assigning a typed dataset to a bindingsource.&nbsp; It turns out, the CF
      version of the SQLite provider needs to be flagged as retargetable so it'll work
      in the design-time desktop environment.&nbsp; No changes were made to the desktop
      build, but the revision was bumped on all libraries anyway in order to keep them
    <p><b> - February 27, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Many optimizations and a few more minor adjustments to schemas and schema retrieval
      <li>Lots of design-time attributes added to the code.&nbsp; The DbDataAdapter, DbCommand,
        and DbConnection objects now have greatly enhanced design-time capabilities when
        added to the toolbox and dropped on a form.</li>
      <li>Lots of Server Explorer enhancements.</li>
      <li>Binaries are now distributed in a setup program for easier administration and
        configuration of the provider.</li>
    <p><b> - February 15, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Yet another bugfix to index schemas, which was incorrectly marking most indexes
      as primary key indexes.</li><li>Fixed GetSchema() to accept a null string array.</li><li>Fixed a misspelled export in the core C library that prevented databases opened
    with UTF16Encoding from getting schema information and would likely cause an error
    if attempted.</li></ul>
    <p><b> - February 14, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Fixed even more minor schema bugs having to do with indexes.</li><li>Added two missing pieces in the SQLite designer which were preventing it from
    being used from within VS Express editions.&nbsp;</li><li>Several bugfixes to the design-time installer program, including supporting
    64-bit environments.</li></ul>
    <p><b> - February 11, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.4</li><li>Fixed an encryption bug when changing the password of databases over 1gb in
      size.&nbsp;</li><li>Fixed various designer issues related to construction of named parameters.&nbsp;</li><li>Retooled the GetSchema() method of SQLiteDataReader to use the new 3.3.4 API functions,
        and made several enhancements and fixes to schemas.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Implemented the SourceColumnNullMapping property of SQLiteParameter to fix
    a DbCommandBuilder code generation bug.&nbsp;</li>
      <li>Removed the runtime dependency on MSVCR80.DLL.&nbsp; File size is somewhat
    larger for the varying desktop versions, but the Compact Framework version remains
    the same.</li><li>Created an install program to manage installation and uninstallation of the
    SQLite design-time support.</li>
      <li>Designer support now works for all Visual Studio editions, including all Express
      <li>Design-time installer will now remove (if present) the machine.config SQLite entries
        in favor of installing the xml code into the devenv.exe.config file (or any of the
        variations for express editions).&nbsp; The officially-accepted behavior of using
        DbProviderFactories is to add the code to your app.config file, and the machine.config
        file should not be touched.</li>
    <p><b> - January 31, 2006</b></p>
    <li>Code merge with SQLite 3.3.3</li><li>Added automatic distributed transaction enlistment and implemented the DbConnection.EnlistTransaction
    method for manual enlistment.</li>
      <li>Nested transactions are now supported.</li>
      <li>Rearranged the timing of SetPassword(), which now must be called before the database
        is opened instead of afterwards.&nbsp; Optionally, the password can be supplied
        in the ConnectionString.</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in SQLiteFunction that caused a failure when an empty resultset was
        returned and a custom user aggregate function was used in the query.</li>
      <li>The designer has had another round of cleanup applied, in preparation for moving
        to a VS package.</li>

      <li>Added pager.c code necessary to cleanup after an encrypted file is closed.</li>
      <li>Fixed an encryption bug that caused a fault when an encrypted file was rolled
      <li>Modified the testcase code to take advantage of optimizations regarding the use
        of a DbCommandBuilder.&nbsp; DataAdapter insert speed increased dramatically as
        a result.</li>
    <p><b> beta - January 10, 2006</b></p>
    <li>This beta is built from's CVS HEAD (as it appeared at of the date of
      this beta) and contains development-in-progress code.&nbsp; Therefore no guarantees
      can be made regarding its suitability for production use.</li><li>Added support for database encryption at the pager level.&nbsp; Databases
    are encrypted using a 128-bit RC4 stream algorithm.&nbsp; To open an existing encrypted
    database, you may now specify a "Password={password}" text in the ConnectionString,
    or you may call the SQLiteConnection.SetPassword() function to set the password
    on an open connection. &nbsp;To encrypt existing non-encrypted databases or to change
    the password on an encrypted database, you must use the SQLiteConnection.ChangePassword()
    function.&nbsp; If you use SetPassword() instead of specifying a password in the
    connection string, or call ChangePassword() you may use a binary byte array or a
    text string as the password.</li>
      <li>Rewrote the locking implementation for the Compact Framework.&nbsp; It is now
        more robust and incorporates into the SQLite codebase more efficiently than the
        previous CE adaptation.</li>
      <li>Moved some of the embedded schema XML data into a resource file to ease code readability.</li>
      <li>Automated the fixup of the original sqlite codebase's source prior to compiling,
        to ease merging with's source.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - December 30, 2005</b></p>
    <li>Fixed the SQLiteDataReader.HasRows property to return the proper value.</li>
      <li>Implemented the inadvertently neglected RecordsAffected property on SQLiteDataReader.
      <li>SQLiteFunction static constructor was changed to pre-filter classes with only the
        SQLiteFunctionAttribute.&nbsp; The code was throwing an exception when certain
        assemblies were referenced in a project. </li>
      <li>Fixed the SQLiteDataAdapter OnRowUpdated event, which was using the wrong variable
        to find the attached event handler and subsequently not raising the event.</li>
      <li>Small optimizations and fixes to SQLiteDataReader.NextResult().&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b> - December 19, 2005</b></p>
    <li>Update core SQLite engine to 3.2.8&nbsp;</li></ul>
    <p><b>1.0.24 - December 9, 2005</b></p>
    <li>Fixed the<em> Catalogs</em> schema bug that caused attached databases not to be re-attached to a cloned connection
      <li>Enhanced transactions to allow for a deferred or immediate writelock. &nbsp;SQLiteConnection.BeginTransaction()
        now has an additional overload to support it </li>
      <li>Commands are now prepared as they are executed instead of beforehand.&nbsp; This
      fixes a bug whereby a multi-statement command that alters the database and subsequently
      references the altered data would fail during Prepare().</li><li>Tightened up the SQLiteDataReader to prevent reading columns before calling
    the first Read() and to prevent reading columns after the last Read().</li>
      <li>A more descriptive error is thrown if there aren't enough parameters in the command
        to satisfy the parameters required by the statement(s).&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b>1.0.23 - November 21, 2005</b></p>
    <li>Named parameters may now begin with <strong>@</strong> to ease portability of
      the provider. SQLite's named parameters are ordinarily prefixed with a <strong>: </strong>
      or<strong> $</strong>.&nbsp; The designer will still use the <strong>$</strong>
      prefix however, since its more compatible with the default SQLite engine.</li><li>Added several alternate ISO8601 date/time formats to SQLiteConvert.cs to increase
      <li>Relaxed coersion restrictions to work better with SQLite's inherent typelessenss.&nbsp;</li>
    <p><b>1.0.22 - November 11, 2005</b></p>
    <li>Fixed some globalization issues which resulted in incorrect case-insensitive comparisons</li>
      <li>Fixed a bug in the routine that finds all user-defined functions in a loaded assembly.&nbsp;
        It would throw an exception if any of the types in the assembly could not be loaded.&nbsp;
        The exception is now caught and handled appropriately.</li>
    <p><b>1.0.21 - November 4, 2005</b></p>
      <li>Fixed a designer bug when creating typed datasets with parameterized queries.
      </li><li>The above fix then exposed another bug in the datareader's ability to query
    schema information on parameterized commands, which was also fixed. </li>
      <li>Compiled against the RTM version of VS2005. </li>
      <li>Rewrote the design-time install script to use the XML DOM objects when writing
        to the machine.config and to automatically register the DLL in the GAC.</li>
      <LI>Made changes to the app.config descriptions and help file to improve version-independent
        factory support.&nbsp; </li>
      <P><STRONG>1.0.20 - October 19, 2005</STRONG></P>
        Fixed a shortcut in SQLiteBase.GetValue which was insufficient for international environments. The shortcut was removed and the "proper" procedure put in.

        Code merge with SQLite 3.2.7
        Fixed bugs in the CE port code (os_wince.c)&nbsp;which were brought to
        light&nbsp;by&nbsp;recent changes in the SQLite engine.

          Added type-specific method calls when using the various SQLite classes that
          would've normally returned a a generic Db base class, which aligns the code
          better with the Microsoft-supplied data providers.</li></UL>
      <p><b>1.0.17 - August 26, 2005</b></p>
        Code merge with SQLite 3.2.5
        Added Itanium and x64 build settings to the project (needs testing)
        Bugfixes and enhancements to several schema types
        Additional design-time support to include index and foreign key
        enumerations.&nbsp; Requires re-registering the designer using
        INSTALL.CMD.&nbsp; The new designer code now allows the VS query designer and
        typed datasets to automatically link up foreign keys, use indexes, and
        automatically generate relationships from the schema.<li>
          Additional static methods on SQLiteConnection to create a database file,
          encrypt a file using the Encrypted File System (EFS) on NTFS (requires NT 2K or
          above) and NTFS file compression</li>

          follow in subsequent releases.</LI>
      <p><b>1.0.14 - August 16, 2005</b><br>
        Fixed a bug in the SQLiteDataAdapter due to insufficient implementation of the
        class.&nbsp; The RowUpdating and RowUpdated events are now properly
        implemented, but unfortunately inserting and updating data in a DataTable or
        DataSet is now much slower.&nbsp; This is the proper design however, so the
        changes are here to stay.
        Lots of schema changes to support Visual Studio's Data Designer architecture.<li>Added
          Designer support for the provider.&nbsp; It's not 100%, but you can design
          queries, add typed datasets and perform quite a number of tasks all within
          Visual Studio now.</li></ul>
      <P><B>1.0.13 - August 8, 2005</B><BR>
          Fixed a named parameter bug in the base SQLite_UTF16 class, which of course
          only showed up when a database connection was opened using the
          UseUTF16Encoding=True parameter.
            Fixed a performance issue in SQLite_UTF16 involving string marshaling.</LI></UL>
      <P><B>1.0.12 - August 5, 2005</B><BR>
            Full support for the Compact Framework.&nbsp; Each build (Debug/Release) now
            has a&nbsp;platform, either Win32 or Compact Framework.&nbsp; The correct
            projects are built accordingly.&nbsp; See the&nbsp;<A href="#redist">Distributing
          section for information on what files need to be distributed for each
          Modified SQLite3.Reset() and Step() functions to transparently handle timeouts
          while waiting on the database to become available (typically when a writer is
          waiting on a reader to finish, or a reader is waiting on a writer to finish).
          Lots of code cleanup&nbsp;as suggested&nbsp;by the Code Analyzer (FxCop).
          Lots of updates to the helpfile (as you can see).
            Statements&nbsp;were already prepared lazily&nbsp;in a SQLiteCommand, but now
            its even more lazy.&nbsp; Statements are now only prepared if the statements
            haven't been previously prepared and a Prepare() function is called (and the
            command is associated with a connection) or just prior to the command being

          <STRONG>For everything except the Compact Framework, System.Data.SQLite.DLL is
            now the <EM>only</EM> DLL required to use this provider!</STRONG>&nbsp; The
        assembly is now a multi-module assembly, containing both the native SQLite3
        codebase and the C# classes built on top of it.&nbsp; The Compact Framework
        version (when completed) will not be able to support this feature, so backwards
        compatibility with the Compact Framework has been preserved for the future.
          Fixed a bug in SQLiteCommand.ExecuteScalar() that caused it to stop executing
          commands once it obtained the first column of the first row-returning
          resultset.&nbsp; Any remaining statements after the row-returning statement was

        Fixed a bug in the SQLite3.cs Prepare() function that created a statement even
        when the SQLite engine returned a NULL pointer. Typically this occurs when
        multiple statements are processed and there are trailing comments at the end of
        the statement.
          Fixed a bug in SQLiteStatement.cs that retrieved parameter names for a
          parameterized query.&nbsp; SQLite's parameters are 1-based, and the function
          was starting at 0.&nbsp; This was fine when all parameters were unnamed, but
          for named parameters it caused the parameters to be out of whack.
      <P><B>1.0.09a - May 25, 2005</B><BR>

      <P><B>1.0.08 - Mar 11, 2005<BR>
        Added additional #if statements to support the old beta 1 edition of VS2005.
          Code merged the SQLite 3.14 source.
      <P><B>1.0.07 - Mar 5, 2005</B><BR>
        Made more optimizations to frequently-called functions, resulting in
        significant performance gains in all tests.
          Recompiled the binaries using the latest VS2005 February CTP, resulting in yet
          more significant speed gains.&nbsp; The 100k insert test used to take 3.5
          seconds and the insertwithidentity took almost 8 seconds.&nbsp; With the above
          two changes, those tests are now executing in 1.9 and 4.9 seconds respectively.</LI></UL>
      <P><B>1.0.06 - Mar 1, 2005<BR>
        Speed-ups to SQLiteDataReader.&nbsp; It was interop'ing unnecessarily every
        time it tried to fetch a field due to a logic error.
        Changed/Added some code to SQLiteConvert's internal DbType, Type and
        TypeAffinity functions.
        Fixed the SQLiteDataReader to obey the flags set in the optional
        CommandBehavior flag from SQLiteCommand.ExecuteReader().
        Changed the default page size to 1024 to reflect the defaults of SQLite.&nbsp;
        Ignores the "Page Size" connection string option for memory databases, as tests
        revealed that changing it resulted in memory corruption errors.
          Performance enhancements to the SQLiteCommand and SQLiteStatement classes which
          reduced the 100,000 row insert execution time as well as the various Function
          execution times significantly.
      <P><B>1.0.05 - Feb 25, 2005</B>
        Fixed the SQLite3 C# class step/reset functions to accomodate schema changes
        that invalidate a prepared statement.&nbsp; Statements are recompiled
        Moved all native DLL declarations to an UnsafeNativeMethods class.
        Split several classes into their own modules for readability.
        Renamed many internal variables, reviewed access to variables marked as
        internal and altered their protection levels accordingly.
        Due to the presence of the altered sqlite3 codebase and so many added interop
        functions, I decided to rename the sqlite3 C project and the DLL to
        SQLite.Interop.DLL.&nbsp; This is the same core sqlite3 codebase but designed
        specifically for this ADO.NET provider.&nbsp; This eliminates any possibility
        of someone dropping another build of sqlite3.dll into the system and rendering
        the provider inoperable.&nbsp; In the future if the folks at finally
        introduce a method of retrieving column usage for an arbitrary prepared
        statement, I'll retool this library to be a lightweight function call wrapper
        around the core binary distribution.
        Added [SuppressUnmanagedCodeSecurity] attribute to the UnsafeNativeMethods
        class which brings VS2005 November CTP execution speeds inline with the
        December CTP.
          Added a <B>bin</B>
        directory to the project root where pre-compiled binaries can be found.
          Added a <B>doc</B>
        directory where preliminary documentation on the class library can be found.
          Documented a lot more of the classes internally.
      <P><B>1.0.04 - Feb 24, 2005</B>
        Removed the SQLiteContext class and revamped the way UserFunctions work to
        simplify the imlementation.
        Fixed a counting bug in the TestCases class, specifically in the function tests
        where I wasn't resetting the counter and it was consequently reporting
        intrinsic and raw select calls as being much much faster than they actually
        were.&nbsp; The numbers are now much closer to what I expected for performance,
        with .NET user-functions still being the slowest, but only by a small margin.
        Small performance tweaks to SQLiteDataReader.
        Added PageSize to the SQLiteConnectionStringBuilder and subsequently to the
          Added a PRAGMA encoding=XXX execution statement to the SQLiteConnection after
          opening a connection.
      <P><B>1.0.03 - Feb 23, 2005</B>
        Fixed up SQLiteCommandBuilder to correct implementation errors, which resulted
        in an enormous performance boost in the InsertMany test.&nbsp;&nbsp; 10,000 row
        insert that executed in 1500ms now executes in 500ms.
        Fixed several errors in the SQLite3_UTF16 class.&nbsp; ToString() was working
        incorrectly and the Open() method failed to register user defined functions and
        Fixed a bug in SQLiteCommand.ClearCommands() whereby only the first statement
        was being properly cleaned up.
        Fixed a bug in SQLiteDataReader whereby calling NextResult() would not properly
        reset the previously-executed command in the sequence.
          Added an InsertManyWithIdentityFetch test, which appends a select clause to
          populate the ID of the last inserted row into the InsertCommand, demonstrating
          ADO.NET's ability to auto-fetch identity columns on insert.
      <P><B>1.0.02 - Feb 21, 2005</B></P>
        Tweaks to the xxx_interop functions that return char *'s, so they also return
        the length.&nbsp; Saves an interop call to get the UTF-8 string length during
        conversion to a .NET string.
        Reworked the whole interop.c thing into interop.h and reduced the code required
        to merge the main sqlite3 codebase.
          Added support for user-defined collations.
