SpatiaLite - VirtualShape [version 2.1 alpha]

updated version [2.2] is here
previous version [2.0] is here

the 2.1 alpha is an interim release supporting:
  • full UNICODE UTF-8 for SQLite and locale charsets for input and output
  • a new, still experimental GUI tool supporting DB management in an user friendly way
SQLite's next version (3.6) will support the definitive RTree Spatial Index, and is expected to introduce lots of changes in Virtual Tables
accordingly to this, release of SpatiaLite 2.1 stable version will be deferred [August 2008], in order to support the lastest Sqlite 3.6 when available
