charnik@1334 1
charnik@1334 2 * Version 3.2.10 released.
charnik@1334 3
charnik@1360 4 * The test suite of Strabon has now reached a mature level. It
charnik@1360 5 contains tests for both stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL query languages and
charnik@1360 6 most of the compliance tests covered in the specification of
charnik@1360 7 GeoSPARQL (well, only those tests for the components that we have
charnik@1360 8 chosen to implement).
charnik@1360 9
charnik@1360 10 * The endpoint now parses Accept headers with multiple values and uses
charnik@1360 11 the first mimetype corresponding to a valid stSPARQLQueryResultFormat.
charnik@1360 12 (bug #64:
charnik@1360 13
charnik@1360 14 * The endpoint now registers a handler for SIGTERM signals, so that if
charnik@1360 15 it is run from the command-line (endpoint-exec), then the closing of
charnik@1360 16 the connection will be ultimately called.
charnik@1360 17 (bug #40:
charnik@1360 18
johnvl@1355 19 * Strabon goes debian v1. the endpoint-exec jar is now given in a .deb
johnvl@1355 20 format. By dpkg-ing it, one can run a stand alone strabon endpoint
johnvl@1355 21 locally.
johnvl@1355 22 (bug #45
johnvl@1355 23
johnvl@1351 24 * Fixed a bug in which Strabon hanged when a unary spatial construct
johnvl@1351 25 had a ternary spatial construct as argument.
charnik@1360 26 (bug #45
johnvl@1351 27
charnik@1360 28 * Fixed a bug according to which spatial functions in ORDER BY were not
charnik@1360 29 evaluated at all.
charnik@1360 30 (bug #62:
charnik@1360 31
charnik@1360 32 * Fixed a bug according to which spatial boolean functions appearing
charnik@1360 33 in the SELECT clause were raising a NULL pointer exception.
charnik@1360 34 (bug #34:
mkarpat@1349 35
sgian@1340 36 * Fixed a bug in queries that contain variables that exist inside
sgian@1340 37 spatial functions in select and do not exist in the where clause
sgian@1340 38 made Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception.
sgian@1340 39 (bug #51
sgian@1340 40
charnik@1334 41 * Various changes in the interface and behavior of Strabon Endpoint:
charnik@1334 42 - Revised the logos and the sample queries.
charnik@1334 43 - Results query limit is set to zero (unlimited).
charnik@1334 44 - Users can now store RDF data that is present in a file on the
charnik@1334 45 client side (the file is uploaded to the server).
charnik@1334 46 - Credentials are now required for uploading files or executing
charnik@1334 47 UPDATE queries, unless Strabon Endpoint runs locally (localhost).
charnik@1334 48 - When viewing the results of queries in HTML, any URI is now an
charnik@1334 49 active link to itself. Previously, that URI was being DESCRIBEd
charnik@1334 50 and one was being transferred to a page viewing the result of the
charnik@1334 51 DESCRIBE query.
charnik@1334 52 - The DESCRIBE functionality can now be accessed through the menu bar.
charnik@1334 53
sgian@1329 54 * Fixed a bug where strdf:intersection function did not work as an
charnik@1360 55 aggregate when used without 'GROUP BY'.
charnik@1360 56 (bug #46
sgian@1329 57
mkarpat@1349 58

charnik@932 60
charnik@932 61 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 62
Konstantina@1235 63 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 64 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 65
Konstantina@1265 66 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 67 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 68 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 69 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 70 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 71 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 72 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 73 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 74
charnik@1117 75 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 76 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 77 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 78
charnik@1115 79 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 80 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 81 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 82
charnik@1115 83 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 84
charnik@1012 85 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 86 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 87 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 88 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 89
charnik@990 90 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 91 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 92 through a warning.
charnik@990 93
charnik@990 94 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 95 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 96 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 97 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 98 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 99 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 100
charnik@1004 101 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 102 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 103 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 104 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 105
charnik@964 106 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 107 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 108 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 109
charnik@932 110 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 111 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 112 (bug #33:
charnik@932 113
kallirroi@1273 114 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 115
kallirroi@1273 116 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 117 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 118
kallirroi@1143 119 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 120 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 121
kallirroi@1143 122 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 123 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 124
Konstantina@1174 125 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 126 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 127 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 128
psmeros@1175 129 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 130 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 131 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 132 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 133
sgian@1267 134 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 135 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 136 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 137
sgian@1268 138 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 139 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 140 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 141
sgian@1269 142 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 143 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 144 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 145
sgian@1270 146 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 147 endpoint.
sgian@1270 148 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 149
sgian@1270 150 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 151 SRID.
sgian@1270 152 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 153
sgian@1266 154 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 155 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.

charnik@645 158
charnik@853 159 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 160
charnik@926 161 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 162 (bug #31:
charnik@926 163
charnik@926 164 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 165 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 166 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 167 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 168
charnik@926 169 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 170 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 171 (bug #22:
charnik@926 172
charnik@926 173 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 174 the GeoSPARQL specification.

charnik@853 178
kkyzir@801 179 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 180
ggarbis@854 181 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 182 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 183 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 184
ggarbis@854 185 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 186 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 187 type:
ggarbis@854 188 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 189 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 190
charnik@810 191 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 192 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 193 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 194 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 195 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 196 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 197
kkyzir@801 198 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 199 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 200
charnik@811 201 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 202
kkyzir@800 203 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 204
kkyzir@800 205 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 206 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 207
charnik@811 208 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 209
charnik@645 210 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 211
charnik@811 212 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 213 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 214
charnik@849 215 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 216 <> are used to
charnik@849 217 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 218
charnik@849 219 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 220 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 221 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 222 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 223 triples.
Konstantina@848 224
charnik@849 225 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 226 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 227 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 228
Konstantina@848 229 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 230 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 231 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 232 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 233 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 234
charnik@759 235 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 236 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 237 at a time.
charnik@759 238
charnik@688 239 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 240 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 241 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 242 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 243
charnik@662 244 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 245 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 246 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 247 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 248
charnik@658 249 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 250 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 251 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 252 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 253 KML specification:
charnik@658 254 <>
charnik@658 255 <>
charnik@658 256
charnik@645 257 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 258 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 259 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 260
charnik@645 261 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 262 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 263 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 264 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 265 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 266 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 267 (<>).
charnik@645 268
charnik@645 269 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 270
charnik@645 271 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 272 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 273
charnik@849 274 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 275 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 276 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 277
charnik@645 278 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 279 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 280
charnik@645 281 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 282 Strabon Endpoint.
