What's new in hale»studio 3.2?

For a full list of changes, please check out the changelog on GitHub

The majority of the new features and improvements were made possible through our contracts with more than 20 customers. We'd like to thank you all for your support!

New features

Arc geometries

Until now, hale didn't support geometries with non-linear interpolation between points, such as arcs. We now added a robust interpolation method that processes Arcs, ArcStrings, Circles, CircleByCenterPoints and creates regular LineStrings and Polygons.

Thanks to the Landesamt für Vermessung und Geobasisinformation Rheinland-Pfalz for funding this work.

Multiple validators

hale»studio's feature to validate exported XML and GML files has been extended. It is now possible to configure multiple validators. Furthermore, a new type of validator, the Project validator has been added which allows validation of the export result based on rules and schemas (e.g. Schematron schemas) imported into the project.

WFS request pagination support

When loading from WFS sources, hale»studio now supports request pagination, a capability that was introduced with the WFS 2.0 standard. This allows loading larger datasets from a WFS where previously this may have been limited by a server-side limit of retrievable features per request.

Better UI support for project variables

The use of project variables, a feature that was introduced with hale»studio 3.0, is now easier as several wizards in hale»studio have been extended to provide content assistance. Simply press Ctrl+Space when inside a text field and choose the desired variable from a list. The content assistant will take care of the correct syntax.
