charnik@1334 1
charnik@1334 2
charnik@1334 3 * Version 3.2.10 released.
charnik@1334 4
charnik@1334 5 * Various changes in the interface and behavior of Strabon Endpoint:
charnik@1334 6 - Revised the logos and the sample queries.
charnik@1334 7 - Results query limit is set to zero (unlimited).
charnik@1334 8 - Users can now store RDF data that is present in a file on the
charnik@1334 9 client side (the file is uploaded to the server).
charnik@1334 10 - Credentials are now required for uploading files or executing
charnik@1334 11 UPDATE queries, unless Strabon Endpoint runs locally (localhost).
charnik@1334 12 - When viewing the results of queries in HTML, any URI is now an
charnik@1334 13 active link to itself. Previously, that URI was being DESCRIBEd
charnik@1334 14 and one was being transferred to a page viewing the result of the
charnik@1334 15 DESCRIBE query.
charnik@1334 16 - The DESCRIBE functionality can now be accessed through the menu bar.
charnik@1334 17
sgian@1329 18 * Fixed a bug where strdf:intersection function did not work as an
sgian@1329 19 aggregate when used without 'GROUP BY'.
sgian@1329 20 (bug #46
sgian@1329 21
charnik@1280 22 Sat Oct 19 23:37:23 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@932 23
charnik@932 24 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 25
Konstantina@1235 26 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 27 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 28
Konstantina@1265 29 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 30 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 31 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 32 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 33 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 34 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 35 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 36 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 37
charnik@1117 38 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 39 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 40 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 41
charnik@1115 42 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 43 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 44 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 45
charnik@1115 46 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 47
charnik@1012 48 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 49 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 50 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 51 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 52
charnik@990 53 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 54 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 55 through a warning.
charnik@990 56
charnik@990 57 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 58 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 59 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 60 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 61 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 62 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 63
charnik@1004 64 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 65 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 66 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 67 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 68
charnik@964 69 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 70 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 71 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 72
charnik@932 73 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 74 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 75 (bug #33:
charnik@932 76
kallirroi@1273 77 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 78
kallirroi@1273 79 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 80 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 81
kallirroi@1143 82 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 83 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 84
kallirroi@1143 85 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 86 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 87
Konstantina@1174 88 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 89 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 90 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 91
psmeros@1175 92 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 93 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 94 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 95 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 96
sgian@1267 97 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 98 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 99 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 100
sgian@1268 101 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 102 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 103 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 104
sgian@1269 105 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 106 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 107 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 108
sgian@1270 109 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 110 endpoint.
sgian@1270 111 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 112
sgian@1270 113 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 114 SRID.
sgian@1270 115 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 116
sgian@1266 117 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 118 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.

charnik@645 121
charnik@853 122 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 123
charnik@926 124 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 125 (bug #31:
charnik@926 126
charnik@926 127 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 128 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 129 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 130 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 131
charnik@926 132 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 133 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 134 (bug #22:
charnik@926 135
charnik@926 136 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 137 the GeoSPARQL specification.
charnik@926 138 (bug #25:
charnik@926 139

charnik@853 141
kkyzir@801 142 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 143
ggarbis@854 144 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 145 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 146 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 147
ggarbis@854 148 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 149 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 150 type:
ggarbis@854 151 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 152 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 153
charnik@810 154 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 155 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 156 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 157 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 158 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 159 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 160
kkyzir@801 161 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 162 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 163
charnik@811 164 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 165
kkyzir@800 166 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 167
kkyzir@800 168 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 169 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 170
charnik@811 171 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 172
charnik@645 173 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 174
charnik@811 175 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 176 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 177
charnik@849 178 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 179 <> are used to
charnik@849 180 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 181
charnik@849 182 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 183 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 184 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 185 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 186 triples.
Konstantina@848 187
charnik@849 188 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 189 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 190 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 191
Konstantina@848 192 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 193 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 194 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 195 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 196 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 197
charnik@759 198 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 199 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 200 at a time.
charnik@759 201
charnik@688 202 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 203 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 204 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 205 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 206
charnik@662 207 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 208 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 209 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 210 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 211
charnik@658 212 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 213 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 214 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 215 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 216 KML specification:
charnik@658 217 <>
charnik@658 218 <>
charnik@658 219
charnik@645 220 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 221 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 222 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 223
charnik@645 224 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 225 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 226 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 227 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 228 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 229 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 230 (<>).
charnik@645 231
charnik@645 232 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 233
charnik@645 234 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 235 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 236
charnik@849 237 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 238 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 239 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 240
charnik@645 241 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 242 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 243
charnik@645 244 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 245 Strabon Endpoint.
