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

Changes since 3.8.7.4-1
=====================
* Updated to upstream 3.8.8.1 release. See:
     <http://www.sqlite.org/releaselog/3_8_8_1.html>
* Remove the (deprecated) handling of the
  CYGWIN_SQLITE_LOCKING environment variable, in
  order to prevent the disaster scenario described here:
    <http://www.cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2015-01/msg00221.html>
  If the CYGWIN_SQLITE_LOCKING variable is not set, SQLite
  behaves exactly the same as the previous 3.8.7.4 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
    <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
