Fedora 10 Update: postgis-1.3.4-1.fc10

Fedora Update Notification
2008-12-02 23:54:17

Name        : postgis
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 1.3.4
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://postgis.refractions.net/
Summary     : Geographic Information Systems Extensions to PostgreSQL
Description :
PostGIS adds support for geographic objects to the PostgreSQL object-relational
database. In effect, PostGIS "spatially enables" the PostgreSQL server,
allowing it to be used as a backend spatial database for geographic information
systems (GIS), much like ESRI's SDE or Oracle's Spatial extension. PostGIS
follows the OpenGIS "Simple Features Specification for SQL" and has been
certified as compliant with the "Types and Functions" profile.

Update Information:

This release includes many bug fixes, and some useful feature enhancements.
* New Features            o Add new ST_AsGeoJSON() function to allow conversion
of geometries to GeoJSON format within the database. (Olivier Courtin)
o Add forthcoming PostgreSQL 8.4 support (Paul Ramsey, Mark Cave-Ayland)
o Improved CSS for PostGIS documentation (Dane Springmeyer)            o
Inclusion of new "postgis_comments.sql" file to enable detailed function
comments to be installed for PostGIS functions. This attaches a description and
associated parameter information to each function so that this information is
available directly within psql/pgAdmin (Regina Obe)       * Enhancements and Bug
Fixes            o General documentation improvements (Regina Obe, Kevin
Neufield)            o Improve PiP code by removing substantial memory leaks and
adding multi-polygon support (Paul Ramsey)            o Improve GiST consistent
performance (Paul Ramsey)            o GBT#20: Improved algorithm for ST_DWithin
(Paul Ramsey)            o GBT#21: locate_along_measure: wrong values, invalid
data (Mark Cave-Ayland)            o GBT#23: wrong proj4text in spatial_ref_sys
for SRID 31300 and 31370 (Paul Ramsey)            o GBT#43: Heap over-read in
compute_geometry_stats() (Landon Fuller)            o GBT#44:
ST_Relate(geom,geom,pattern) is case sensitive (Paul Ramsey)            o
GBT#45: bug in postgis_restore.pl - not passing options to createdb (Paul
Ramsey)            o GBT#58: bounding box of circular string is incorrect (Mark
Leslie)            o GBT#65: ST_AsGML kills the backend when fed a CIRCULAR
STRING (Mark Cave-Ayland)            o GBT#66: ST_Dump kills backend when fed
CIRCULAR STRING (Mark Cave-Ayland)            o GBT#68: ST_Shift_Longitude
doesn't work with MULTIPOINT (Mark Cave-Ayland)            o GBT#69:
ST_Translate crashes when fed circular string (Mark Cave-Ayland)            o
