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@1273 56 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 57
kallirroi@1273 58 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 59 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 60
kallirroi@1143 61 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 62 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 63
kallirroi@1143 64 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 65 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 66
Konstantina@1174 67 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 68 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 69 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 70
psmeros@1175 71 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 72 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 73 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 74 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 75
sgian@1267 76 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 77 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 78 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 79
sgian@1268 80 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 81 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 82 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 83
sgian@1269 84 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 85 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 86 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 87
sgian@1270 88 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 89 endpoint.
sgian@1270 90 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 91
sgian@1270 92 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 93 SRID.
sgian@1270 94 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 95
sgian@1266 96 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 97 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.
sgian@1266 98
charnik@927 99 Tue Mar 26 13:28:26 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@645 100
charnik@853 101 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 102
charnik@926 103 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 104 (bug #31:
charnik@926 105
charnik@926 106 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 107 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 108 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 109 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 110
charnik@926 111 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 112 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 113 (bug #22:
charnik@926 114
charnik@926 115 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 116 the GeoSPARQL specification.
charnik@926 117 (bug #25:
charnik@926 118
charnik@853 119 Wed Jan 09 18:06:41 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@853 120
kkyzir@801 121 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 122
ggarbis@854 123 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 124 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 125 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 126
ggarbis@854 127 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 128 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 129 type:
ggarbis@854 130 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 131 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 132
charnik@810 133 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 134 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 135 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 136 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 137 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 138 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 139
kkyzir@801 140 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 141 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 142
charnik@811 143 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 144
kkyzir@800 145 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 146
kkyzir@800 147 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 148 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 149
charnik@811 150 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 151
charnik@645 152 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 153
charnik@811 154 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 155 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 156
charnik@849 157 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 158 <> are used to
charnik@849 159 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 160
charnik@849 161 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 162 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 163 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 164 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 165 triples.
Konstantina@848 166
charnik@849 167 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 168 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 169 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 170
Konstantina@848 171 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 172 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 173 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 174 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 175 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 176
charnik@759 177 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 178 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 179 at a time.
charnik@759 180
charnik@688 181 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 182 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 183 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 184 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 185
charnik@662 186 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 187 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 188 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 189 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 190
charnik@658 191 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 192 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 193 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 194 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 195 KML specification:
charnik@658 196 <>
charnik@658 197 <>
charnik@658 198
charnik@645 199 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 200 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 201 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 202
charnik@645 203 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 204 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 205 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 206 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 207 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 208 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 209 (<>).
charnik@645 210
charnik@645 211 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 212
charnik@645 213 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 214 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 215
charnik@849 216 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 217 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 218 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 219
charnik@645 220 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 221 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 222
charnik@645 223 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 224 Strabon Endpoint.
