charnik@932 2
charnik@932 3 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 4
charnik@1117 5 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 6 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 7 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 8
charnik@1115 9 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 10 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 11 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 12
charnik@1115 13 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 14
charnik@1012 15 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 16 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 17 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 18 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 19
charnik@990 20 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 21 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 22 through a warning.
charnik@990 23
charnik@990 24 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 25 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 26 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 27 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 28 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 29 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 30
charnik@1004 31 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 32 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 33 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 34 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 35
charnik@964 36 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 37 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 38 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 39
charnik@932 40 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 41 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 42 (bug #33:
charnik@932 43
kallirroi@1143 44 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 45 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 46
kallirroi@1143 47 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 48 PostGIS function
psmeros@1175 49
psmeros@1175 50 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 51 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 52 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 53 implemented.

charnik@927 55 Tue Mar 26 13:28:26 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@645 56
charnik@853 57 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 58
charnik@926 59 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 60 (bug #31:
charnik@926 61
charnik@926 62 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 63 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 64 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 65 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 66
charnik@926 67 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 68 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 69 (bug #22:
charnik@926 70
charnik@926 71 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 72 the GeoSPARQL specification.
charnik@926 73 (bug #25:
charnik@926 74
charnik@853 75 Wed Jan 09 18:06:41 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@853 76
kkyzir@801 77 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 78
ggarbis@854 79 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 80 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 81 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 82
ggarbis@854 83 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 84 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 85 type:
ggarbis@854 86 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 87 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 88
charnik@810 89 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 90 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 91 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 92 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 93 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 94 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 95
kkyzir@801 96 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 97 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 98
charnik@811 99 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 100
kkyzir@800 101 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 102
kkyzir@800 103 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 104 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 105
charnik@811 106 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 107
charnik@645 108 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 109
charnik@811 110 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 111 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 112
charnik@849 113 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 114 <> are used to
charnik@849 115 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 116
charnik@849 117 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 118 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 119 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 120 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 121 triples.
Konstantina@848 122
charnik@849 123 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 124 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 125 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 126
Konstantina@848 127 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 128 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 129 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 130 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 131 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 132
charnik@759 133 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 134 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 135 at a time.
charnik@759 136
charnik@688 137 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 138 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 139 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 140 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 141
charnik@662 142 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 143 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 144 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 145 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 146
charnik@658 147 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 148 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 149 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 150 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 151 KML specification:
charnik@658 152 <>
charnik@658 153 <>
charnik@658 154
charnik@645 155 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 156 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 157 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 158
charnik@645 159 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 160 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 161 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 162 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 163 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 164 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 165 (<>).
charnik@645 166
charnik@645 167 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 168
charnik@645 169 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 170 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 171
charnik@849 172 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 173 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 174 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 175
charnik@645 176 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 177 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 178
charnik@645 179 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 180 Strabon Endpoint.
