Next ckmame Version Will Use SQLite 3

November 8, 2007

The next version of ckmame will use SQLite 3 instead of Berkeley DB.

This avoids the portability nightmare of finding compatible header files and library names, which vary widely across systems.

It also simplifies ckmame’s database model, since we no longer need to maintain indices ourselves. This allows for easier manipulation of the database, which will be facilitated by the forthcoming database editing tool.
