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.

SpatialLine

Defines a geographic line (minimum of 2 points)

GeographicUnit

A specific geographic unit of a defined Unit Type. A geographic unit may change its name, composition, or geographic extent over time. This may be tracked by versioning the content of the geographic unit. Normally a new version of a geographic unit would have a geographic (spatial) overlap with its previous version (a city annexing new area). A geographic unit ends when it is no longer a unit of the same unit type.

SpatialRelationship

Used to specify a relationship between one spatial object and another. Includes definition of the spatial object types being related, the spatial relation specification, and the event date.

SpatialRelationSpecification

A list defining types of Spatial Relations. When used in conjunction with Spatial Object Pairs list can describe the relationship between any two spatial objects. Note that not all spatial relations are relevant in with all spatial object pairs. For example: point to point can only be equals or disjoint.

SpatialObjectPairs

Lists possible pairs between spatial objects which are being compared.

GeographicClassification

The GeographicClassification Package uses unit, unit type, and collections to provide the basis for describing the geographic structure (unit types) and their individual locations (units) in a manner that supports complex layered hierarchies, changes in name, role, and geographic extent over time, and coding for direct use in value domains and responses. It supports the content of DDI Lifecycle Geographic Structure and Geographic Location.

SimpleCollection

Simple Collection container (set or bag) that may be unordered or ordered using Member Indicator. This collection type is limited to expressing only unordered sets or bags, and simple sequences. Use when there is a need to limit the organization of the collection to one of these forms of organization

CategoryRelationStructure

Relation structure of categories within a collection. Allows for the specification of complex relationships among categories.

CategoryIndicator

Member Indicator for use when the member type is restricted to Category.

AnalyticMetadatumRelationStructure

Relations used to describe the complex structure of a Analytic Metadata Set
