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

Changes since
* Updated to upstream release. See:
* Remove the (deprecated) handling of the
  CYGWIN_SQLITE_LOCKING environment variable, in
  order to prevent the disaster scenario described here:
  If the CYGWIN_SQLITE_LOCKING variable is not set, SQLite
  behaves exactly the same as the previous release.
  Using a non-default VFS is discouraged, but it still can be done:
    <http://www.sqlite.org/vfs.html> (Section 2.1)
* Additional SQLite bug-fixes, rejected (apparently) upstream
  but important (and simple) enough for Cygwin:
  * VFS filename truncation issues
  * Wrong filename handling in sqlite3_load_extension() for Cygwin
  * pragma database_list returns win32 paths on Cygwin
  * ISO time leap second
  * update to Unicode 7.0 for FTS3 tokenizer
