On the way to rqlite 8.0

rqlite is a lightweight, open-source, distributed relational database written in Go, which uses SQLite as its storage engine.

Development for the 8.0 release has started, and should be an important release.

The main goals for 8.0 include:

  • Support for much larger data sets. Today it can require a large amount of RAM if the SQLite data grows to GBs in size. Release 8.0 will address these shortcomings, meaning large dataset should be well-supported.
  • Removal of some rarely-used, and mostly obsolete, command-line options.
  • Improvements to disk and RAM usage generally.

Upgrading from the 7.x release series should be seamless.
