Next DBD::SQLite to be released in early March

DBD::SQLite 1.41_06 is a release candidate of the next production release of DBD::SQLite. I'm planning to release it around the QA Hackathon in March if there's no blocking report. I suppose upgrading won't break your software, but please test it with 1.41_06 and post anything new you find to RT/GitHub/Mailing List.

Here're notable changes since the last stable release:

  • SQLite's query planner has been rewritten since SQLite 3.8.0 (bundled in DBD::SQLite 1.41_01). According to the upstream author, the new query planner should give exactly the same result (though perhaps with a little less CPU time spent planning) for simple queries, and for complex queries, it can in many cases provide a much faster answer.
  • DBD::SQLite now supports URI filenames to control read/write mode and/or shared cache mode.
  • DBD::SQLite now respects explicit data type specification of bind values (via bind_param() etc) even if "sqlite_see_if_its_a_number" handle attribute is set to true.
