charnik@1334 2
charnik@1334 3 * Version 3.2.10 released.
charnik@1334 4
johnvl@1351 5 * Fixed a bug in which Strabon hanged when a unary spatial construct
johnvl@1351 6 had a ternary spatial construct as argument.
johnvl@1351 7 (bug #45
johnvl@1351 8
mkarpat@1349 9 * Altered default SRID to GeoSPARQL SRID: Geometries with wktLiteral
johnvl@1351 10 datatype in SPARQL queries were not interpreted in the correct CRS.
johnvl@1351 11 (bug #44
mkarpat@1349 12
sgian@1340 13 * Fixed a bug in queries that contain variables that exist inside
sgian@1340 14 spatial functions in select and do not exist in the where clause
sgian@1340 15 made Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception.
sgian@1340 16 (bug #51
sgian@1340 17
charnik@1334 18 * Various changes in the interface and behavior of Strabon Endpoint:
charnik@1334 19 - Revised the logos and the sample queries.
charnik@1334 20 - Results query limit is set to zero (unlimited).
charnik@1334 21 - Users can now store RDF data that is present in a file on the
charnik@1334 22 client side (the file is uploaded to the server).
charnik@1334 23 - Credentials are now required for uploading files or executing
charnik@1334 24 UPDATE queries, unless Strabon Endpoint runs locally (localhost).
charnik@1334 25 - When viewing the results of queries in HTML, any URI is now an
charnik@1334 26 active link to itself. Previously, that URI was being DESCRIBEd
charnik@1334 27 and one was being transferred to a page viewing the result of the
charnik@1334 28 DESCRIBE query.
charnik@1334 29 - The DESCRIBE functionality can now be accessed through the menu bar.
charnik@1334 30
sgian@1329 31 * Fixed a bug where strdf:intersection function did not work as an
sgian@1329 32 aggregate when used without 'GROUP BY'.

charnik@932 37
charnik@932 38 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 39
Konstantina@1235 40 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 41 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 42
Konstantina@1265 43 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 44 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 45 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 46 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 47 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 48 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 49 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 50 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 51
charnik@1117 52 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 53 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 54 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 55
charnik@1115 56 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 57 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 58 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 59
charnik@1115 60 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 61
charnik@1012 62 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 63 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 64 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 65 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 66
charnik@990 67 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 68 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 69 through a warning.
charnik@990 70
charnik@990 71 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 72 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 73 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 74 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 75 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 76 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 77
charnik@1004 78 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 79 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 80 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 81 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 82
charnik@964 83 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 84 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 85 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 86
charnik@932 87 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 88 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 89 (bug #33:
charnik@932 90
kallirroi@1273 91 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 92
kallirroi@1273 93 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 94 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 95
kallirroi@1143 96 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 97 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 98
kallirroi@1143 99 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 100 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 101
Konstantina@1174 102 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 103 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 104 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 105
psmeros@1175 106 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 107 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 108 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 109 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 110
sgian@1267 111 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 112 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 113 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 114
sgian@1268 115 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 116 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 117 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 118
sgian@1269 119 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 120 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 121 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 122
sgian@1270 123 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 124 endpoint.
sgian@1270 125 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 126
sgian@1270 127 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 128 SRID.
sgian@1270 129 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 130
sgian@1266 131 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 132 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.

charnik@645 135
charnik@853 136 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 137
charnik@926 138 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 139 (bug #31:
charnik@926 140
charnik@926 141 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 142 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 143 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 144 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 145
charnik@926 146 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 147 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 148 (bug #22:
charnik@926 149
charnik@926 150 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 151 the GeoSPARQL specification.

charnik@853 155
kkyzir@801 156 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 157
ggarbis@854 158 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 159 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 160 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 161
ggarbis@854 162 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 163 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 164 type:
ggarbis@854 165 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 166 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 167
charnik@810 168 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 169 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 170 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 171 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 172 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 173 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 174
kkyzir@801 175 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 176 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 177
charnik@811 178 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 179
kkyzir@800 180 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 181
kkyzir@800 182 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 183 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.

charnik@811 186
charnik@645 187 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 188
charnik@811 189 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 190 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 191
charnik@849 192 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 193 <> are used to
charnik@849 194 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 195
charnik@849 196 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 197 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 198 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 199 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 200 triples.
Konstantina@848 201
charnik@849 202 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 203 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 204 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 205
Konstantina@848 206 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 207 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 208 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 209 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 210 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 211
charnik@759 212 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 213 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 214 at a time.
charnik@759 215
charnik@688 216 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 217 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 218 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 219 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 220
charnik@662 221 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 222 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 223 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 224 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 225
charnik@658 226 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 227 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 228 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 229 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 230 KML specification:
charnik@658 231 <>
charnik@658 232 <>
charnik@658 233
charnik@645 234 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 235 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 236 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 237
charnik@645 238 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 239 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 240 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 241 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 242 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 243 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 244 (<>).
charnik@645 245
charnik@645 246 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 247
charnik@645 248 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 249 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 250
charnik@849 251 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 252 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 253 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 254
charnik@645 255 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 256 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 257
charnik@645 258 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 259 Strabon Endpoint.
