You can update the version of sqlite in this new version of PHP?

...because in unix systems use a global scope sqlite lib... but in windows systems 
depend only of the internal version from the php build, and still is from 
php 5.4/5

... and php 5.5 should come with the new sqlite version, you think? :-)

... or remember the pdo_sqlite_external.dll ????? this was a good solution but 
died! :-(


Test script:

  $pdo = new PDO( 'sqlite::memory:' ) ;

  $res = $pdo->query( 'SELECT sqlite_version()' ) ;

  print_r( $res->fetchColumn() ) ;


Expected result:

Please also update SQLite in all currently supported branches of PHP (e.g. 5.3 and 

This is important to me, because SQLite 3.3.15+ far more effectively handles IN 
operator in WHERE clause, than it was in 
previous releases. Consequently change of SQLite engine version from to 
3.3.15 causes queries in my application running 
3-5 times faster.

It has nothing to do with windows, sqlite is bundled in php sources and windows 
uses it for the sqlite related extension.

Hi Pierre, I think that I already clarified, but I repeat again... I am only 
"user-programer" of PHP and not a "win-builder" versions, then I can not change 
and compile PHP every time under change the PHP version number, so you should 
update sqlite from sources before compiling... and I like many others who only 
use PHP and just download only the binaries for use, I was clear?! ;-)

Sorry but my english isn't buggy.

So Windows is not like Unix ... and does not use external sqlite lib, so we 
depend on the version that comes inside of the binaries.

Please I hope you can update it, who clearly appropriate.

Distributions sometimes use system library, sometimes not. But's sources 
bundled Sqlite and it is not Sqlite specific. See:

The day we will have the newer version there, windows will have it automatically 
as well.

OK, but who is in charge of updating this? that's just what it claims...

You might not yet have Windows versions that support an old version of sqlite 
for any reason.

It's just refresh the sources of this folder:

"sqlite is bundled in php sources"

So please tell me how and where should I ask for the update of sqlite.

Thank you.

I'm on OS X version 5.4 and agree that this should be upgraded. is from 
over 2 years ago. I would like to use some features that exist in newer versions 
of the library such as named memory databases.

Knowing that it is as easy to upgrade ... do not know why I fought so almost 1 year or more. Why does this happen sometimes with people inside the core of PHP?

Not always that easy and not every upgrade is sensible right at some moment. But so much better it happens now :) Once you see some significant upgrade is possible, please don't hesitate to open yet another ticket.

Hello, sorry but... you can upgrade to the latest version again? because they found a bug concerning visual studio.

... If possible, for PHP 5.5 and 5.6 as above.

I would like ... like to return the ext php_sqlite_external.dll which allowed me to download the version of sqlite.dll directly from the author and go! ;)

for the RFC: 

As the ssh2 extension using ssh2.dll externally, you could do this with sqlite not? because it is something simple, and Windows users will depend strictly on the buils for these updates?. I have no power to propose a RFC, but for those who can!

they think?

Thanks and sorry!

Hi, thanks for reporting this. Actually i don't think this version is worth it to upgrade, the preprocessor bug mentioned in the changelog doesn't affect PHP build. You can find both PDO and sqlite3 extension DLLs in the builds.

Aside that, please do not reopen this ticket again and again but create another one. Having never ending tickets for all the issues is not a good practice. For your RFC suggestion, please use the mailing lists to discuss it.
