Added automatic builds
Each day a ZIP-file is created via cron.
The builds consist of XMI, XSD, DocBook, PDF and graphs in dot, svg and png.
Added basic validation for names
installed module for validation, some rules for object and package names have been defined.
Added help for creating and managing the model
Guidelines for naming and propeties.
Added stage-tagging for objects
Re-arranged "Status" and added field for Stage, filter added on objects page.
Changes for Datatype
Datatype taxonomy is replaced by a datatype content type, to create a new one go to /node/add/datatype. You can specify basic documentation of the datatype and specify enumerated values. A datatype must be placed in a package.

DataPipeline

A DataPipeline is a single traversal of the Generic Longitudinal Business Model (GLBPM) and/or the Generic Statistical Business process Model (GSBPM) in the course of a study where a study is either one off or a wave in a StudySeries.

BusinessProcess

BusinessProcesses could be Generic Longitudinal Business Process Model (GLBPM) and/or Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) steps and/or sub-steps. BusinessProcesses participate in a DataPipeline by virtue of their preconditions and postconditions.

A BusinessProcess differs from a WorkflowStep by virtue of its granularity. Higher level operations are the subject of BusinessProcesses. A BusinessProcess has a WorkflowStepSequence through which these higher levels operations may optionally be decomposed into WorkflowSteps.

BusinessWorkflow

BusinessWorkflow was introduced to provide Workflow with an upper model that could be used to describe traversals of the Generic Longitudinal Business Process Model (GLBPM) and/or the Generic Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM) either in a one off study or in a wave that is part of a StudySeries.

UnitDataRecord

Gives a UnitDataRecord structure to a Logical Record. UnitDataRecord structures a LogicalRecord as either a SimpleCollection or a StructuredCollection (InstanceVariableRelationStructure) of instance variables.

The UnitDataRecord also organizes instance variables in a UnitDataViewpoint. The UnitDataViewpoint assigns roles to Instance Variables. In any one UnitDataViewpoint UnitDataRecord instance variables play one of three roles: identifier, measure or attribute. The same UnitDataRecord may have many UnitDataViewpoints.

InstanceVariableRelation

Defines the relationship between 2 or more InstanceVariables.

CatalogMaterial

Holding catalog classes prior to decision on eventual inclusion

CDEDevelopment

This package is a holding place for classes related to Common Data Element work. Classes have been moved from Conceptual to remove them from the Prototype library.

LanguageSpecification

This data type is to be used for properties that make statement about the language of the data described and not about the language of the meta data content. For the later, please use xs:language.

StructuredGeographyView

Purpose:

ClassificationItemIndicator

A ClassificationItemIndicator realizes and extends a MemberIndicator which provides a Classification Item with an index indicating order and a level reference providing the level location of the Classification Item within a hierarchical structure.
