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
    • Simplification: Synonyms belong to max. 1 accepted taxon now (before they could belong to multiple taxa, this was used for pro parte synonyms, which will be handled as taxon concept relationships in future, but with special user interface functionality similar to misapplied names)
    • 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

    • Improved support for deleting names, taxa, persons/teams, factual data and terms in bulk editor, name editor, factual data view and term editor, including bugfixes

    • 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

What's new?

  • DataPortal

    • Taxon experts can now be displayed in a new tab of the taxon pages.
    • Maps adapted to different screen size. Openlayers try to adapt to the screen size and the map aspect ratio can be set instead of fixed width and height (#5385)
    • MapProxy established (#5023): Background layers for the maps can now be retrieved via the Cybertaxonomy MapProxy The layers served through the map proxy are delivered much faster and availability problems of some map server are circumvented this way. It is therefore highly recommended to use the map proxy versions of the base layers instead of the original ones so far a map proxy version is available. You may want to adapt the Geo & Map settings in your dataportal accordingly.
