CDM Platform 4.7 (released on May 16th, 2017)

What's new?

  • General / Model

    • The main change in Version 4.7 is the upgrade of the TaxEditor from Eclipse 3.7 to Eclipse 4.6 (Neon). This upgrade will ease development in future. To make the TaxEditor running under e4.6 several adaptations had to be made.
      • IMPORTANT: Due to the upgrade it might happen that during the first opening an error shows up. If this happens CLOSE and REOPEN the editor.
      • IMPORTANT: Due to the upgrade the default update mechanism for the TaxEditor will not work. Instead you need to install it from scratch (download from and unzip into any folder).
    • A new import and export framework has been established. It is meant for more feedback and reporting during the imports. Currently it is used only experimentally for the new "Excel Distribution Update" import (experimental feature), and partly for the new "CDM light (csv)" export (also experimental in the current state).
    • New identifier types for botanical names added: IPNI, Tropicos, WFO (World Flora Online)
    • Improved handling of hybrids
    • Automatic basionym recognition (not yet available in TaxEditor)
  • DataPortal

    • Allow multiple layers in maps (option to define a wms overlay layer for the openlayers map viewer)
    • Bugfix for fast moving maps while padding
  • Imports / Exports

    • Improved Import- and Export framework for better report resulting (existing imports/exports still need to be adapted to the new framework)
    • New: "CDM light (csv)" export - a CSV export that exports all CDM data for a single classification in csv format
    • New: RIS Reference import - e.g. to import reference data from Endnote via RIS format (still experimental, some attributes are not yet handled)
    • New: "Excel Distribution Update" added (still experimental, please contact us, if you want to use it)
    • New: Multilingual Term Representation import (not yet available in TaxEditor)
    • New: Identifier import (not yet available in TaxEditor)
    • Updated: ABCD Import
      • possibility to import all siblings of a specimen derived from a culture.
      • better handling of media data, identifications, gathering events
  • TaxEditor

    • Upgrade to Eclipse 4.6
    • Improved Parser
    • Parse "sp. nov." and similar names
    • Improved handling for original spellings (further improvements needed)
    • Prefill nomenclatural reference selection dialog if taxon name author is given
    • Selected items removed from selection dialog
    • Server-side preference for frequently used biocase providers added (ABCD import)
    • Improved search behavior in Specimen Hierarchy Editor
    • Some improvements for the Alignement Editor integration
    • Rank list for create new name in bulk editor sorted
    • Improvements for specimen search/import:
      • better parsing of results to display scientific name, collection etc
      • add possibility to configure the import in result view
      • possibility to set the name of the import reference
    • Bug fixes:
      • Delete synonyms in Name Editor with supplemental data attached
      • Delete synonyms in bulk editor
      • Exception when switching to simple name details view
      • Empty reference dialog after changing reference type
      • Incorrect data when editing a new nomenclatural reference for a new name
      • Exception ("multiple representations") when adding name relationships
  • Vaadin Applications

CDM Platform 4.4 (released on December 5th, 2016)

What's new?

  • General / Model
    • Distribution status terms of several CDM instance have been unified and some new status were added to the CDM distribution status base vocabulary; default symbols used in condensed distribution strings were updated

    • Support for locally overriding database specific preferences (currently only implemented for preference "nomenclautral code", will be more in next version)
    • Symbol for congruence concept relationships changed

    • Prevent users from unwanted updates on shared data: a red warning is shown in dialogs now if a shared resource is edited (currently implemented only for reference editing)
    • Preference to choose available fields for taxon details view (most fields can be selected individually now; in next version this may become a database specific preference)

      • Exception when editing taxon interactions (e.g. parasites) in factual data view
    • Some minor issues
