This maintenance outage will also affect the Tempo API, the the Connect website, and the site for Codebook.

SQLCipher 3.0.1 Release

2013-12-06 14:55:10 -0500

This release contains a fix for the PRAGMA cipher_migrate feature we added with the 3.0.0 release. A migration issue existed when a passphrase that was longer than 64 characters, or a raw hex key was provided which caused a failure during migration. In addition to the bug fix, we've added a new PRAGMA called cipher_add_random that allows one to add externally sourced entropy to the entropy pool of your configured crypto provider. Currently there is support for this via the OpenSSL and libtomcrypt providers. The format must be provided as blob literal containing a hex sequence. An example would look like this:

sqlite> PRAGMA key = 'test';
sqlite> PRAGMA cipher_add_random = "x'deadbaad'";

Please take a look at the 3.0.1 release and let us know if you have any questions or feedback.
