A new version of RSQLite has been pushed to CRAN.
In this version...
* Further integration of the manifest type system available since
SQLite 3. We now obtain the column type from the DB instead of
pulling everything across as a character vector and calling
type.convert. This should improve performance and provide a more
reliable interface to build on top of. Note, however, that since
type.convert is no longer called, return values will be different.
In particular, text columns will come across as text, not factor.
* dbWriteTable has been refactored and no longer uses temp files.
This resolves performance issues and line ending quandries on
* Fix for a bug in dbWriteTable when used to import text files; files
lacking a trailing end of line marker can now be used.
