rqlite is a lightweight, distributed relational database, which uses SQLite as its storage engine. rqlite provides an easy-to-use, fault-tolerant store for critical relational data.
This is the first release of the 4.0 series. It includes node-to-node encryption, clearer command-line options, new in-CLI commands, amongst other changes. See the CHANGELOG for full details, and on how to upgrade from previous releases. And if you wish to build rqlite from source, check out this documentation.
