Next stable DBD::SQLite to be released in mid June

DBD::SQLite 1.47_05 is a release candidate of the next stable DBD::SQLite. As always, please test it with your modules/applications and let me know if you find anything. If there's no blocker nor request to wait, I'll release 1.48 in the mid June, hopefully on 11th, the day after the YAPC::NA is over.

There'll be no big change in DBD::SQLite 1.48 itself, but a few notable changes that might affect you include:

  • Fixed optimization (-O2) was removed. This usually shouldn't matter, but if your perl is compiled with a different level of optimization, test carefully.
  • Now you can pass an extra bit (SQLITE_DETERMINISTIC) to create_function() and create_aggregate() for better performance.
  • $dbh->do($sql_without_bind_values) should also perform better.
  • DBD::SQLite::Constants is introduced to export a number of useful constants.

See Changes file in the distribution for other fixes and improvements.
