  •     Browse, edit, add and delete records
  •     Search records
  •     Import and export records as text
  •     Import and export tables from/to CSV files
  •     Import and export databases from/to SQL dump files
  •     Issue SQL queries and inspect the results
  •     Examine a log of all SQL commands issued by the application
SQLite Browser 3.8.0 which was released end of last year is now available for installation via the PPA.  SQLite Browser is a visual tool used to create, design and edit database files compatible with SQLite. This release contains some important enhancements, and fixes.
