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

charnik@932 33
charnik@932 34 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 35
Konstantina@1235 36 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 37 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 38
Konstantina@1265 39 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 40 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 41 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 42 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 43 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 44 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 45 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 46 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 47
charnik@1117 48 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 49 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 50 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 51
charnik@1115 52 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 53 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 54 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 55
charnik@1115 56 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 57
charnik@1012 58 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 59 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 60 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 61 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 62
charnik@990 63 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 64 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 65 through a warning.
charnik@990 66
charnik@990 67 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 68 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 69 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 70 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 71 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 72 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 73
charnik@1004 74 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 75 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 76 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 77 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 78
charnik@964 79 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 80 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 81 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 82
charnik@932 83 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 84 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 85 (bug #33:
charnik@932 86
kallirroi@1273 87 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 88
kallirroi@1273 89 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 90 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 91
kallirroi@1143 92 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 93 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 94
kallirroi@1143 95 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 96 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 97
Konstantina@1174 98 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 99 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 100 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 101
psmeros@1175 102 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 103 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 104 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 105 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 106
sgian@1267 107 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 108 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 109 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 110
sgian@1268 111 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 112 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 113 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 114
sgian@1269 115 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 116 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 117 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 118
sgian@1270 119 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 120 endpoint.
sgian@1270 121 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 122
sgian@1270 123 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 124 SRID.
sgian@1270 125 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 126
sgian@1266 127 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 128 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.

charnik@645 131
charnik@853 132 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 133
charnik@926 134 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 135 (bug #31:
charnik@926 136
charnik@926 137 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 138 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 139 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 140 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 141
charnik@926 142 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 143 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 144 (bug #22:
charnik@926 145
charnik@926 146 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 147 the GeoSPARQL specification.

charnik@853 151
kkyzir@801 152 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 153
ggarbis@854 154 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 155 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 156 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 157
ggarbis@854 158 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 159 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 160 type:
ggarbis@854 161 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 162 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 163
charnik@810 164 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 165 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 166 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 167 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 168 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 169 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 170
kkyzir@801 171 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 172 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 173
charnik@811 174 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 175
kkyzir@800 176 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 177
kkyzir@800 178 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 179 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.

charnik@811 182
charnik@645 183 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 184
charnik@811 185 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 186 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 187
charnik@849 188 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 189 <> are used to
charnik@849 190 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 191
charnik@849 192 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 193 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 194 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 195 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 196 triples.
Konstantina@848 197
charnik@849 198 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 199 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 200 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 201
Konstantina@848 202 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 203 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 204 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 205 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 206 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 207
charnik@759 208 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 209 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 210 at a time.
charnik@759 211
charnik@688 212 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 213 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 214 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 215 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 216
charnik@662 217 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 218 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 219 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 220 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 221
charnik@658 222 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 223 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 224 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 225 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 226 KML specification:
charnik@658 227 <>
charnik@658 228 <>
charnik@658 229
charnik@645 230 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 231 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 232 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 233
charnik@645 234 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 235 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 236 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 237 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 238 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 239 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 240 (<>).
charnik@645 241
charnik@645 242 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 243
charnik@645 244 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 245 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 246
charnik@849 247 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 248 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 249 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 250
charnik@645 251 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 252 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 253
charnik@645 254 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 255 Strabon Endpoint.
