SQLite is a software library that implements a self-contained,
serverless, zero-configuration, transactional SQL database engine

Changes since 3.8.6-1
=====================
* Updated to upstream 3.8.7.1 release. See:
     <http://www.sqlite.org/changes.html>
  Main new feature: "pragma threads=?" (default=0, max = 8). This
  enables SQLite to use multiple processor cores at the same
  time for sorting operations. See:
    <http://www.sqlite.org/pragma.html#pragma_threads>
* Additional SQLite (minor) bug-fixes, cherry-picked from SQLite trunk:
  * Add special handling for static mutexes in sqlite3_mutex_alloc()
    when automatic calls to sqlite3_initialize() are enabled
    <http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/7857d27caa>
  * Fix the %c format character in sqlite3VXPrintf() so that it correctly
    handles precisions larger than 70
    <http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/08a27440f1>
  * Fix a (probably harmless) bug in the CSV output mode of
    the command-line shell
    <http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/19fe4a0a47>
  * Change the command-line shell man-page to use the ".tr"
    troff directive instead of ".cc" for escaping the initial "."
    characters in the ".help" output
    <http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/67f0d469da>
* Additional SQLite bug-fixes, rejected (apparently) upstream
  but important (and simple) enough for Cygwin:
  * VFS filename truncation issues
    <http://www.sqlite.org/src/info/c060923a54>
  * Wrong filename handling in sqlite3_load_extension() for Cygwin
    <http://osdir.com/ml/sqlite-users/2014-02/msg00431.html>
  * pragma database_list returns win32 paths on Cygwin
    <http://osdir.com/ml/sqlite-users/2014-02/msg00515.html>
  * ISO time leap second
    <http://osdir.com/ml/sqlite-users/2014-07/msg00606.html>
  * update to Unicode 7.0 for FTS3 tokenizer
