T9.1 Data Access and Storage Facilities

FAO Activities

FAO has changed the approach used in trees to serialise leaves with null values, from intra-library solution to standard solution with xsi"nill attributes. Described in ticket #812, the fix is included in version 1.3.0 and is released in gCube 2.11.1.

FAO has also fixed a problem in tree-repository, which resulted in some retrieved trees without the sourceId attribute. The fix is not associated with incidents, but it has been nonetheless included in version 2.1.1 and is released in gCube 2.11.1.

Finally, FAO has added a new distribution artefact to the tree-repository, with classifier standalone. The distribution embeds the dependencies required for manual deployment of the plugin.
