charnik@932 1 Day Month Date Hour:Min:Sec Year Pyravlos Team
charnik@932 2
charnik@932 3 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 4
Konstantina@1235 5 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 6 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 7
Konstantina@1265 8 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 9 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 10 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 11 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 12 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 13 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 14 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 15 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 16
charnik@1117 17 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 18 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 19 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 20
charnik@1115 21 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 22 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 23 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 24
charnik@1115 25 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 26
charnik@1012 27 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 28 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 29 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 30 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 31
charnik@990 32 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 33 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 34 through a warning.
charnik@990 35
charnik@990 36 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 37 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 38 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 39 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 40 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 41 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 42
charnik@1004 43 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 44 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 45 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 46 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 47
charnik@964 48 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 49 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 50 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 51
charnik@932 52 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 53 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 54 (bug #33:
charnik@932 55
kallirroi@1143 56 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 57 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 58
kallirroi@1143 59 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 60 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 61
Konstantina@1174 62 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 63 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 64 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 65
psmeros@1175 66 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 67 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 68 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 69 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 70
sgian@1266 71 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 72 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.
sgian@1266 73
charnik@927 74 Tue Mar 26 13:28:26 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@645 75
charnik@853 76 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 77
charnik@926 78 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 79 (bug #31:
charnik@926 80
charnik@926 81 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 82 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 83 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 84 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 85
charnik@926 86 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 87 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 88 (bug #22:
charnik@926 89
charnik@926 90 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 91 the GeoSPARQL specification.
charnik@926 92 (bug #25:
charnik@926 93
charnik@853 94 Wed Jan 09 18:06:41 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@853 95
kkyzir@801 96 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 97
ggarbis@854 98 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 99 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 100 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 101
ggarbis@854 102 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 103 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 104 type:
ggarbis@854 105 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 106 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 107
charnik@810 108 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 109 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 110 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 111 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 112 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 113 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 114
kkyzir@801 115 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 116 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 117
charnik@811 118 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 119
kkyzir@800 120 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 121
kkyzir@800 122 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 123 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 124
charnik@811 125 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 126
charnik@645 127 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 128
charnik@811 129 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 130 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 131
charnik@849 132 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 133 <> are used to
charnik@849 134 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 135
charnik@849 136 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 137 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 138 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 139 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 140 triples.
Konstantina@848 141
charnik@849 142 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 143 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 144 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 145
Konstantina@848 146 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 147 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 148 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 149 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 150 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 151
charnik@759 152 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 153 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 154 at a time.
charnik@759 155
charnik@688 156 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 157 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 158 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 159 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 160
charnik@662 161 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 162 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 163 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 164 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 165
charnik@658 166 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 167 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 168 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 169 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 170 KML specification:
charnik@658 171 <>
charnik@658 172 <>
charnik@658 173
charnik@645 174 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 175 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 176 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 177
charnik@645 178 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 179 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 180 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 181 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 182 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 183 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 184 (<>).
charnik@645 185
charnik@645 186 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 187
charnik@645 188 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 189 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 190
charnik@849 191 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 192 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 193 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 194
charnik@645 195 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 196 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 197
charnik@645 198 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 199 Strabon Endpoint.
