0.2.0 (2014-02-24)

  • New base functionality

    • Added framework for managing user-specific data (user configurations, saved searches, etc.) and querying user-specific data in templates and views.
    • Added tracking of namespace information per component of a fact term
  • New/Modified views

    • Modifications to all views
      • Added possibility to switch between horizontal and vertical layout … or have automatic adjustment of the layout depending on screen width.
    • Modifications to filter views
      • Modified date-picker in filters to enable addition of timespans without changing saved searches or messing up order of timespans
      • Added several further filter criteria in InfoObject filter
    • Added view with basic and still rather restricted editing capabilities for InfoObjects – currently only used for editing user preferences or edits by the superuser
    • Added view to edit user configuration
    • Added view to edit saved searches
    • Added per-column ordering to list views
    • Added new filter/search that shows unique Facts rather than all InfoObjects containing a certain fact.
  • New/added capabilities for writing views

    • Added framework for ordering list views
    • Added per-user configuration for:
      • layout (horizontal vs. vertical)
      • number of rows to show in list views
      • number of rows to show in widget displaying objects in which a displayed object is embedded
  • Bug fixes / Improvements

    • Generation of filter views became unbearably slow when many (> 40,000) InfoObjects are in the system. This was, because of a badly built query within the dynamically built filter form. This has been fixed.
    • Further development of JSON export (still needs work to make the to_dict function of InfoObjects generic and configurable such as the from_dict function)
    • Fixed bug in generation of InfoObjects: when a placeholder for a given ID already existed, it was not reliably found.
  • New/Modified command-line commands

    • Import command now fails gracefully if import of a file throws an exception: it continues with import of the next file.

    • Added command line arguments to basic import command:

      • ability to add IDs of marking objects to be added to imported objects
      • ability to automatically move imported XML files to other folder after import
    • Added command to reset user-settings and saved searches for a given user.

    • Added command to re-calculate object names.

      This is useful to run right after an import, recalculating the names of ‘Observable’ InfoObjects created in the past few minutes. Thus, the problem that those Observables that are to be named after the (single) object they contain do not carry a proper name (because at creation time of the Observable, the Object usually does not exist, yet) can be fixed.
