HTSQL 2.1.0rc1 is releasedΒΆ

Published by xi on 2011-06-21

The first release candidate for the 2.1 release is now available. Changes since the last beta:

  • Added /:tsv formatter that generates output in tab-separated format (thank to Andrey Popp).
  • A lot of updates to the tutorial, the reference and other documentation.
  • Minor code updates and bug fixes.

The documentation changes include:

  1. We completely revamped the HTRAF Toolkit Reference.
  2. We revisited the Tutorial, editing most sections and adding two new sections that describe 2.1 features: Calculations & References, Projections.
  3. We revisited the Overview, which now includes two new sections: HTSQL in a Nutshell, Why not SQL?.
  4. We started work on a Reference.
  5. We added a Gallery with examples of HTSQL queries and HTRAF dashboards for several datasets.

Major changes since the 2.0 release:

  • Added MySQL, Oracle and MS SQL Server backends, in addition to existing SQLite and PostgreSQL backends.
  • Added support for projections (see Introducing Projections).
  • Added support for calculated attributes and references (see Introducing Calculated Attributes and Introducing References).
  • Streamlined HTSQL grammar and semantics, added support for time and datetime data types, and many other improvements.
