New SQLite

That’s right! Last night I landed the latest version of SQLite to trunk. While generally updating SQLite is not so new-worthy, this time it is. You see, SQLite 3.5.x brings about some really awesome changes that consumers can take advantage of. The most important one for Mozilla (as I see it so far) is the ability to have the shared cache accessible on multiple threads. That means we can use database connections on multiple threads now while using the same cache. We can also use them at the same time (before, you could use them on different threads, but they would not have the same shared cache, nor could you use them at the same time). To see all the neat changes that we can now use, please read the SQLite docs.
