3 * Version 3.2.8 released.
5 * Added support for handling (storing/querying) GeoSPARQL datatypes.
6 (bug #31:
8 * Fixed a bug in StoreOp that wouldn't close the connection, neither
9 rollback the transaction upon an exception. This had as a side effect
10 the abnormal termination of StoreOp (through for example the use of
11 Ctrl-C signal) which was leaving the database locked.
13 * Fixed bug where spatial aggregates (e.g., union) didn't work as
14 expected when the query didn't contain a `GROUP BY' clause.
15 (bug #22:
17 * Updated GeoSPARQL namespaces and fixed function names to comply with
18 the GeoSPARQL specification.
19 (bug #25:
21 Wed Jan 09 18:06:41 2013 Pyravlos Team
23 * Version 3.2.7 released.
25 * Add an extension function
26 <> for computing the
27 span (in milliseconds) between two timestamps.
29 * Added an <endpoint-exec> module. This module builds an executable jar file
30 with an embedded Apache Tomcat 7. To create and run the executable jar just
31 type:
32 $ mvn clean package
33 $ java -jar endpoint-exec/target/strabon-endpoint-executable-*.jar
35 * Modified strabon script and postgis/monetdb.StoreOP class to get an
36 option for storing a RDF file in a named graph. Moreover, the RDF
37 format of the input RDF file now is given as an option (still, if it
38 is missing, it is assumed that the input is in N-TRIPLES format). The
39 option for the format is -f and the option for the named graph is -g
40 (takes a URI as an argument).
42 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions that
43 utilize the minimum bounding boxes of the involved geometries.
45 Tue Dec 11 19:33:45 2012 Pyravlos Team
47 * Version 3.2.6 released.
49 * Modified the names of the stSPARQL extension functions to comply
50 with the OGC Simple Features Access standard.
52 Tue Dec 11 00:11:43 2012 Pyravlos Team
54 * Version 3.2.5 released.
56 * Added support for querying temporal information. This functionality
57 may be found in the `temporals' branch.
59 The datatypes <> and
60 <> are used to
61 represent periods and instants respectively.
63 The valid time time of triples is represented using quadtruples,
64 with the valid time annotation(instant or period) being the
65 fourth element of the quad. In the same way, temporal triple
66 patterns are used in queries to retrieve the valid time of
67 triples.
69 Some functions have been renamed (their URIs have changed) to
70 follow the names of the respective relations of Allen's
71 interval algebra and other functions have been added.
73 The following temporal functions are supported:
74 during, periodOverlaps, equalsPeriod, nequalsPeriod, adjacent,
75 before, after, overleft, overright, meets, starts, finishes,
76 period_intersect, period_union, preceding_period, and
77 succeeding_period.
79 * Changed behaviour of Strabon and Strabon Endpoint for connecting to
80 a spatially-enabled database. Only one instance of Strabon is allowed
81 at a time.
83 * Implemented a Java client for Strabon Endpoint. The client should be
84 used only with endpoint versions >=3.2.5. The implementation may be
85 found int the `endpoint-client' submodule of maven. Currently, only
86 querying of Strabon Endpoints is supported.
88 * Added support for requesting the capabilities of Strabon Endpoint
89 (fixes Bug #20 <>). See
90 changesets f840796400bf and ?<TBC>? for specific details and how you
91 can determine the capabilities of older endpoints (versions <= 3.2.4).
93 * Updated KML writer to include the projected variables of an stSPARQL
94 query in "ExtendedData" and "Data" tags. This is the proper way to
95 do it if we need to convert a KML to a ESRI shapefile and also include
96 such information as attributes for a feature. See related pages from
97 KML specification:
98 <>
99 <>
101 * Added user authentication for storing RDF data through Strabon
102 Endpoint. The credentials are specified in
103 WEB-INF/ file.
105 * Strabon Endpoints now limits the number of the results to a maximum
106 one. The maximum number is specified in the beans.xml file. This
107 corresponds to parameter "maxLimit". The endpoint script has also been
108 updated correspondingly; the limit can be given using the option "-l".
109 One can disable limiting of query results, by setting the "maxLimit"
110 parameter to 0. Addresses Bug #6
111 (<>).
113 * Added "Known Issues" section to README.
115 * Added -m (more memory) and -M (much more memory) options in strabon
116 script for out-of-memory exceptions.
118 * Fixed Bug #10 (<>). Now
119 KMLWriter handles more geometric types (other than polygons). See
120 changeset 9a3bfee64a39.
122 * Menu and navigation in Strabon Endpoint has changed to use jquery.
123 The menu is now populated using the queries placed inside the beans.xml.
125 * Added BrowseBean and browse.jsp for browsing the RDF data using the
126 Strabon Endpoint.
