CDM Platform 5.4 (released on Oct 25th, 2018)

Issues: 54

Downloads: Ask the edit team for backups of this version

What's new?

  • Documentation

    • online webservice documentation was broken since 5.3. Fixed.
  • Dataportal

    • display of related taxa (misapplied names, pro parte synonyms, concept relations)
      • sort order
      • hyperlink to related taxa was missing
      • further links (???)
    • phycobank/name registration related
      • search via taxon graph (#7835)
      • improvements on name registration page
      • hide unpublished names, types and registrations (#7723)
  • TaxEditor

    • restart menu available
    • distribution editor
      • further improvements, now it is not an experimental feature anymore (but still has some open issues, we recommend to contact us before using)
      • improved area selection (still some issues)
      • predefined source selection
      • support supplemental data
      • support various symbols/labels for areas and status
    • performance
      • faster loading of details view and other views (open issues exist)
      • faster creation of factual data view right click menu
    • bulk editor
      • multiple columns available for display and sorting
      • symbol indicating deduplication status
    • navigator
      • set excluded and unplaced via right click menu
    • name relationships allow reverse direction
    • hybrid flags enabled/disabled rank specific
    • determination events can now have sources
    • factual data
      • improved labels for descriptions including sources
      • available common name references can be explicitly marked
      • reference search on alternative identifiers possible parallel to title (cache) search
      • add sources to descriptions when creating them (explicit menu item)
      • reorder menu ("new" on top, ...)
      • available distribution area vocabularies and status and common name areas definable via DB preferences
    • further database sided preferences implemented (there are still some bugs, we recommend contacting us before using DB sided preferences)
      • exclude specimen, media, import/exports, multiple classification functionality
      • further attributes for simplified name details view
      • distribution area vocabulary selection
      • distribution status selection
      • checklist perspective as start perspective
      • simplify sources view (hide IdInSource and IdNamespace)
    • client side (local) preferences stored database specific
      • if users use multiple databases client side preferences often need to be different depending on the database in use; now also client side preferences are stored for each database and not for the complete TaxEditor installation anymore (only valid for newly changed preferences)
    • NOTE: preference handling (server and client side) still has some severe open issues, we will try to work on them for the next release, so we recommend to handle with care until then
    • bugs:
      • taxon node editor does not allow editing existing taxon data anymore, only taxon node data
      • right click menu sometimes does not show up in name editor
      • exceptions when editing terms in term editor
      • freezing login dialog if no connection established
      • exception after saving bulk editor
      • exception during specimen search in bulk editor
      • exception when canceling "move elements" in factual data view
  • Browser Editor (Vaadin)

    • performance
      • big workingsets in the RegistrationWorkingSetEditor are loading much faster now. This improvement also has positive effects on other editors (#7785)
    • usability
      • multiple classifications and classification fragments can be merged into a common taxon graph structure. This graph first of all allows searching names by higher ranked names. Edits of names are automatically tracked in the graph. (#7834)
      • New mode for the TaxonNameEditor: VALIDATE_AGAINST_HIGHER_NAME_PART. This mode requires that a higher name must exising in the data base before it can be used as name part. (#7783, #7648, #7831, #7830, 7845)
      • improving some labels in the UI
    • bugs
      • memory issues (#7036, #7036)
      • problem with session attributes in different CDM Instances

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

This is a pure bugfix release for Release 3.12 with no new functionality. It handles 0 issues.

Milestones and tickets

CDM Platform 3.12 (released on December 21st, 2015)

Note: Version 3.9, 3.10 and 3.11 were minor releases mostly for development reasons and were not published

Version 3.12 handles 6 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.
