@rp- rp- released this Jan 31, 2015 · 15 commits to v3.5.x since this release

DB Browser for SQLite v3.5.0 is now available for download! πŸ˜€

One of the major improvements in this release, is support for encrypted databases (for MacOS X and Linux only, not Windows yet). This is done using the SQLCipher encryption library.

In addition to that, there are a lot of significant bug fixes and general improvements. It's definitely worth updating, if you're in doubt. πŸ˜„

Other notes

  • The Windows release uses SQLite v3.8.8.2
  • The MacOS X release has two potential downloads
    • One download uses "standard" SQLite (v3.8.8.1)
    • The other download uses SQLCipher (v3.2.0) to give encryption support for your SQLite databases
    • You only need to download one of them, not both πŸ˜„
