Highlight: Improved SPARQLStore support

SMWs SPARQLStore has now reached full feature parity with the SQLStore. On top of that, various performance improvements where made to the SPARQLStore.

The `$GLOBALS['smwgSparqlQFeatures']` configuration setting now supports these additional values:

  • #1001 SMW_SPARQL_QF_REDI: enable property/value redirects support in queries
  • #1003 SMW_SPARQL_QF_SUBP: enable subproperty hierarchy support
  • #1012 SMW_SPARQL_QF_SUBC: enable subcategory hierarchy support

If your TDB back-end does not support SPARQL 1.1, this setting needs to be set to SMW_SPARQL_QF_NONE.

  • #1152 Added preference for use of canonical identifiers to support language agnostic category/property statements, (use `$GLOBALS['smwgExportBCNonCanonicalFormUse'] = trueto keep backwards compatibility until 3.x)
  • #1158 Added basic support for_geoqueries to theSPARQLStore
  • #1159 Added limitation of theauxproperty usage in the Exporter (use$GLOBALS['smwgExportBCAuxiliaryUse'] = true;` to keep backwards compatibility until 3.x)
