charnik@645 2
kkyzir@801 3 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 4
charnik@810 5 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 6 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 7 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 8 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 9 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 10 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 11
kkyzir@801 12 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 13 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.

charnik@811 16
kkyzir@800 17 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 18
kkyzir@800 19 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 20 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 21
charnik@811 22 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 23
charnik@645 24 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 25
charnik@811 26 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 27 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 28
Konstantina@848 29 The datatypes <> and <>
Konstantina@848 30 are used to represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 31
Konstantina@848 32 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples, with the valid time
Konstantina@848 33 annotation(instant or period) being the fourth element of the quad. In the same way,
Konstantina@848 34 temporal triple patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of triples.
Konstantina@848 35
Konstantina@848 36 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to follow the names of the
Konstantina@848 37 respective relations of Allen's interval algebra and other functions have
Konstantina@848 38 been added.
Konstantina@848 39
Konstantina@848 40 The following temporal functions are supported:
Konstantina@848 41 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent, before, ,after,
Konstantina@848 42 overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
Konstantina@848 43 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 44
charnik@759 45 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 46 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 47 at a time.
charnik@759 48
charnik@688 49 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 50 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 51 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 52 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 53
charnik@662 54 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 55 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 56 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 57 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 58
charnik@658 59 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 60 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 61 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 62 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 63 KML specification:
charnik@658 64 <>
charnik@658 65 <>
charnik@658 66
charnik@645 67 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 68 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 69 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 70
charnik@645 71 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 72 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 73 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 74 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 75 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 76 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 77 (<>).
charnik@645 78
charnik@645 79 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 80
charnik@645 81 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 82 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 83
charnik@645 84 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now KMLWriter
charnik@645 85 handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See changeset
charnik@645 86 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 87
charnik@645 88 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 89 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 90
charnik@645 91 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 92 Strabon Endpoint.
