Version 4.4.0 of wxSQLite3 has been released. It supports version 3.26.0 of SQLite. This version is compatible with wxWidgets 2.8.12, wxWidgets 3.0.x, and wxWidgets 3.1.x.

What's new in this release
  • Upgrade to SQLite version 3.26.0
  • Added support for the SQLCipher 4 database format
Note: SQLite3 binaries for Windows can be found as a separate download. Windows binaries are provided in 32-bit and 64-bit. Experimental versions with enabled ICU support are included, too. For details refer to the included readme file.

Especially the support for the SQLCipher database formats has been enhanced. The latest version SQLCipher 4.0.0, released end of November 2018, is fully supported - just as all previous versions. Creating a new database or opening an existing database in SQLCipher format is as simple as giving an appropriate database file URI like

Code: Select all

file:database-file-name.db?cipher=sqlcipher&legacy=4&key=passphrase
where the value of the legacy parameter is the requested SQLCipher version number.

As always, feedback is welcome.

Ulrich
