hale studio 4.0.0

Our main objective for this major release has been to modernize hale studio from the ground up, by making it compliant with current OpenJDK versions, using the most recent eclipse RCP version, and by upgrading as many dependencies such as GeoTools as feasible. The updates include:

  • Migration to OpenJDK
  • Upgrade to GeoTools 21
  • Improved support for Linux and macOS (platform upgrade to Eclipse 2020-03)
  • Major updates to the documentation and help
  • Reader and Writer for GeoPackage
  • A specific Writer for XPlanGML that supports partitioning by plan
  • Added presets for CEN/TS 17268 (TN-ITS), ISO 19139, XPlanGML 4.0/4.1/5.0/5.1/5.2/5.3beta and GeoInfoDok 6.0.1/7.0/7.1
  • Enhancements for GML Dictionary Codelist handling
  • Support for TLS 1.2
  • Various other bug fixes and enhancements

Please note that this release introduces breaking changes that affect transformation project compatibility and plug-ins compatibility. All plug-ins (e.g. GeoServer app-schema, hale studio pro Plug-Ins) need to be upgraded. Transformation projects created in hale studio 4.0 cannot be used in older versions due to the GeoTools migration.

For a complete list of changes, please take a look at the change log.

Important note for Windows users

In case you experience problems with hale studio after upgrading from a previous version (e.g. a missing menu bar or other UI glitches), please make sure to delete or rename the workspace folder HALE in %APPDATA%\wetransform as this folder may contain data incompatible with the new Eclipse platform.

Installation instructions

Using the Windows installer:

If not using the Windows installer:

  • On Mac OS X installing Java 8 JDK is required (JRE is not sufficient!)
  • Extract the archive to your local filesystem (to a folder where you have write access)
  • When using the DMG image on macOS: Mount the image and install hale studio by dragging the app to the Application folder. You might also need to explicitly allow the hale studio app to start via System Preferences > Security & Privacy.
  • Run the hale studio executable (e.g. HALE.exe on Windows)
