charnik@1334 2
charnik@1334 3 * Version 3.2.10 released.
charnik@1334 4
charnik@1360 5 * The test suite of Strabon has now reached a mature level. It
charnik@1360 6 contains tests for both stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL query languages and
charnik@1360 7 most of the compliance tests covered in the specification of
charnik@1360 8 GeoSPARQL (well, only those tests for the components that we have
charnik@1360 9 chosen to implement).
charnik@1360 10
charnik@1360 11 * The endpoint now parses Accept headers with multiple values and uses
charnik@1360 12 the first mimetype corresponding to a valid stSPARQLQueryResultFormat.
charnik@1360 13 (bug #64:
charnik@1360 14
charnik@1360 15 * The endpoint now registers a handler for SIGTERM signals, so that if
charnik@1360 16 it is run from the command-line (endpoint-exec), then the closing of
charnik@1360 17 the connection will be ultimately called.
charnik@1360 18 (bug #40:
charnik@1360 19
johnvl@1355 20 * Strabon goes debian v1. the endpoint-exec jar is now given in a .deb
johnvl@1355 21 format. By dpkg-ing it, one can run a stand alone strabon endpoint
johnvl@1355 22 locally.
johnvl@1355 23 (bug #45
johnvl@1355 24
johnvl@1351 25 * Fixed a bug in which Strabon hanged when a unary spatial construct
johnvl@1351 26 had a ternary spatial construct as argument.
charnik@1360 27 (bug #45
johnvl@1351 28
charnik@1360 29 * Fixed a bug according to which spatial functions in ORDER BY were not
charnik@1360 30 evaluated at all.
charnik@1360 31 (bug #62:
charnik@1360 32
charnik@1360 33 * Fixed a bug according to which spatial boolean functions appearing
charnik@1360 34 in the SELECT clause were raising a NULL pointer exception.
charnik@1360 35 (bug #34:
mkarpat@1349 36
sgian@1340 37 * Fixed a bug in queries that contain variables that exist inside
sgian@1340 38 spatial functions in select and do not exist in the where clause
sgian@1340 39 made Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception.
sgian@1340 40 (bug #51
sgian@1340 41
charnik@1334 42 * Various changes in the interface and behavior of Strabon Endpoint:
charnik@1334 43 - Revised the logos and the sample queries.
charnik@1334 44 - Results query limit is set to zero (unlimited).
charnik@1334 45 - Users can now store RDF data that is present in a file on the
charnik@1334 46 client side (the file is uploaded to the server).
charnik@1334 47 - Credentials are now required for uploading files or executing
charnik@1334 48 UPDATE queries, unless Strabon Endpoint runs locally (localhost).
charnik@1334 49 - When viewing the results of queries in HTML, any URI is now an
charnik@1334 50 active link to itself. Previously, that URI was being DESCRIBEd
charnik@1334 51 and one was being transferred to a page viewing the result of the
charnik@1334 52 DESCRIBE query.
charnik@1334 53 - The DESCRIBE functionality can now be accessed through the menu bar.
charnik@1334 54
sgian@1329 55 * Fixed a bug where strdf:intersection function did not work as an
charnik@1360 56 aggregate when used without 'GROUP BY'.
charnik@1360 57 (bug #46
sgian@1329 58
mkarpat@1349 59
charnik@1280 60 Sat Oct 19 23:37:23 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@932 61
charnik@932 62 * Version 3.2.9 released.
charnik@932 63
Konstantina@1235 64 * Added support for the following google chart types: PieChart,
Konstantina@1235 65 AreaChart and ColumnChart to strabon endpoint.
Konstantina@1235 66
Konstantina@1265 67 * Added Timemap as new results format in Strabon endpoint. This
Konstantina@1265 68 option displays results in a map and a timeline on the same time,
Konstantina@1265 69 using the Timemap js library (
Konstantina@1265 70 The KMLWriter has been extended for that purpose, by transforming
Konstantina@1265 71 dateTime values that are included in the result set into the respective
Konstantina@1265 72 TimeStamp KML primitive (
Konstantina@1265 73 In the "temporals" branch, the values of the strdf:period datatype
Konstantina@1265 74 are converted into the respective KML TimeSpan primitive.
Konstantina@1265 75
charnik@1117 76 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1117 77 mapped to the ST_Centroid(geometry) extension function of PostGIS.
charnik@1117 78 See also: <>.
charnik@1117 79
charnik@1115 80 * Added extension function <> which is
charnik@1115 81 mapped to the ST_MakeLine(geometry, geometry) extension function of
charnik@1115 82 PostGIS. See also: <>.
charnik@1115 83
charnik@1115 84 * Added PostGIS vocabulary class.
charnik@1115 85
charnik@1012 86 * Added support of all SPARQL result types provided by Sesame (json,
charnik@1012 87 xml, csv, tsv, binary). To get the respective writer, just prepend the
charnik@1012 88 string "SPARQL/", e.g., "SPARQL/JSON". This is to ensure that we
charnik@1012 89 support all SPARQL result formats of the SPARQL Protocol.
charnik@1012 90
charnik@990 91 * Fixed a bug where a non-implemented extension function would make
charnik@990 92 Strabon throw a NULL pointer exception. Now we get away with it
charnik@990 93 through a warning.
charnik@990 94
charnik@990 95 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported units of
charnik@990 96 measure for use in strdf:distance and geof:distance functions of
charnik@990 97 stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL, respectively. The URIs are those defined by
charnik@990 98 OGC Units of Measure 1.0 specification which may be found at
charnik@990 99 Strabon endpoint publishes
charnik@990 100 the URIs at http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@990 101
charnik@1004 102 * Created new module with name 'vocab` and artifactId
charnik@1004 103 'strabon-vocabulary` and moved there. Other
charnik@1004 104 vocabularies have been added as well, such as Simple Features, and
charnik@1004 105 GeoSPARQL.
charnik@966 106
charnik@964 107 * Strabon endpoint now publishes the URIs of the supported extension
charnik@964 108 functions for stSPARQL and GeoSPARQL. One should access them by
charnik@964 109 hitting the link http://localhost:8080/endpoint/Capabilities.
charnik@964 110
charnik@932 111 * Support for parsing EPSG URIs in geometry literals with datatype
charnik@932 112 geo:wktLiteral.
charnik@932 113 (bug #33:
charnik@932 114
kallirroi@1273 115 * Endpoint Client now supports querying of Virtuoso and Parliament endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 116
kallirroi@1273 117 * Endpoint Client now supports store and update operations, but only
kallirroi@1273 118 for Strabon Endpoints.
kallirroi@1273 119
kallirroi@1143 120 * GeoSPARQL functions sfCrosses, sfOverlaps, ehOverlaps do not use the
kallirroi@1143 121 ST_Relate PostGIS function (bug #24:
kallirroi@1143 122
kallirroi@1143 123 * All Simple Features functions of GeoSPARQL do not use the ST_Relate
kallirroi@1143 124 PostGIS function
psmeros@1176 125
Konstantina@1174 126 * Added diffTime function. This function performs the difference
Konstantina@1174 127 between two literals of xsd:time datatype and returns a literal of
Konstantina@1174 128 the xsd:time datatype as well.
psmeros@1175 129
psmeros@1175 130 * Added a testsuite package in default branch. Full tester guide can be found
psmeros@1175 131 in README. Among other, most of GeoSPARQL compliance tests
psmeros@1175 132 (, pg. 53) have been
psmeros@1175 133 implemented.
kallirroi@1143 134
sgian@1267 135 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:distance function, by
sgian@1267 136 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1267 137 (bug #23:
sgian@1267 138
sgian@1268 139 * Changed the definition and implementation of strdf:buffer function, by
sgian@1268 140 adopting the definition of GeoSPARQL.
sgian@1268 141 (bug #35:
sgian@1268 142
sgian@1269 143 * Added geof:distance and geof:buffer functions, which have the same definition
sgian@1269 144 with strdf:distance and strdf:buffer respectively.
sgian@1276 145 (bug #32:
sgian@1269 146
sgian@1270 147 * Added a download button when performing describe and construct queries at the
sgian@1270 148 endpoint.
sgian@1270 149 (bug #38:
sgian@1270 150
sgian@1270 151 * Fixed a bug, where XMLWriter and TSVWriter did not return geometries with the
sgian@1270 152 SRID.
sgian@1270 153 (bug #47:
sgian@1270 154
sgian@1266 155 * Fixed a bug where the GeoSPARQL construct functions did not return the datatype
sgian@1266 156 geo:wktLiteral datatype but strdf:WKT.
sgian@1266 157

charnik@645 159
charnik@853 160 * Version 3.2.8 released.
charnik@853 161
charnik@926 162 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
charnik@926 163 (bug #31:
charnik@926 164
charnik@926 165 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
charnik@926 166 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
charnik@926 167 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
charnik@926 168 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
charnik@926 169
charnik@926 170 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
charnik@926 171 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
charnik@926 172 (bug #22:
charnik@926 173
charnik@926 174 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
charnik@926 175 the GeoSPARQL specification.

charnik@853 178 Wed Jan 09 18:06:41 2013 Pyravlos Team
charnik@853 179
kkyzir@801 180 * Version 3.2.7 released.
kkyzir@801 181
ggarbis@854 182 * Add an extension function
ggarbis@854 183 <> for computing the
ggarbis@854 184 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
ggarbis@854 185
ggarbis@854 186 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
ggarbis@854 187 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
ggarbis@854 188 type:
ggarbis@854 189 $ mvn clean package
ggarbis@854 190 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
charnik@853 191
charnik@810 192 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
charnik@810 193 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
charnik@810 194 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
charnik@810 195 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
charnik@810 196 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
charnik@810 197 (takes a URI as an argument).
charnik@810 198
kkyzir@801 199 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
kkyzir@801 200 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
kkyzir@801 201
charnik@811 202 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 203
kkyzir@800 204 * Version 3.2.6 released.
kkyzir@800 205
kkyzir@800 206 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
kkyzir@801 207 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
kkyzir@800 208
charnik@811 209 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
charnik@811 210
charnik@645 211 * Version 3.2.5 released.
charnik@645 212
charnik@811 213 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
Konstantina@848 214 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
Konstantina@848 215
charnik@849 216 The datatypes <> and
charnik@849 217 <> are used to
charnik@849 218 represent periods and instants respectively.
Konstantina@848 219
charnik@849 220 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
charnik@849 221 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
charnik@849 222 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
charnik@849 223 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
charnik@849 224 triples.
Konstantina@848 225
charnik@849 226 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
charnik@849 227 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
charnik@849 228 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
Konstantina@848 229
Konstantina@848 230 The following temporal functions are supported:
charnik@849 231 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
charnik@849 232 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
charnik@849 233 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
charnik@849 234 succeeding_period.
Konstantina@848 235
charnik@759 236 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
charnik@759 237 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
charnik@759 238 at a time.
charnik@759 239
charnik@688 240 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
charnik@688 241 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
charnik@688 242 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
charnik@688 243 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
charnik@688 244
charnik@662 245 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
charnik@662 246 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
charnik@662 247 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
charnik@662 248 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
charnik@662 249
charnik@658 250 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
charnik@658 251 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
charnik@658 252 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
charnik@658 253 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
charnik@658 254 KML specification:
charnik@658 255 <>
charnik@658 256 <>
charnik@658 257
charnik@645 258 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
charnik@662 259 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
charnik@662 260 WEB-INF/ file.
charnik@645 261
charnik@645 262 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
charnik@645 263 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
charnik@645 264 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
charnik@645 265 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
charnik@645 266 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
charnik@645 267 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
charnik@645 268 (<>).
charnik@645 269
charnik@645 270 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
charnik@645 271
charnik@645 272 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
charnik@645 273 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
charnik@645 274
charnik@849 275 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
charnik@849 276 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
charnik@849 277 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
charnik@645 278
charnik@645 279 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
charnik@645 280 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
charnik@645 281
charnik@645 282 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
charnik@645 283 Strabon Endpoint.
