[QGIS-Developer] Changelog images for 3.10

Tim Sutton-6
Hi Folks

I have been working my way through the changelog entries for 3.10, trying to add suitable images. Great work everyone involved in adding all those nice new features! I do have a couple of queries though:

—————————————————



Feature: @scale_value variable
  
Add @scale_value expression variable for use when evaluating data defined text format properties while rendering scale bar text. Allows for per-label customisation of the text format inside scale bars

@Nyall I can’t seem to find options for this in layout window, nor do I see the variable in the expression editor.


—————————————————


Improved SVG layered exports - any more hints on this & how we can show it visually (if at all)?


———————————


Feature: Improved PostGIS raster support
  
Now available via the browser and the Data Source Manager dialog.

This feature was developed by Alessandro Pasotti


@Ale - do you have any more info on this? I am wondering how it compares to the features offered in Jorge’s plugin here: https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/raster2postgis/ and if it makes the latter unnecessary now?

Re: Changelog images for 3.10

Richard Duivenvoorde
Thanks Tim! For taking care of this.

Let me know whey you think we are 'done', then I will do the rst export,
put it in the site, and make it translatable by pushing it to Transifex.

I now put the placeholder site in qgis.org [0])

So plz ping me when "ready". Is this weekend feasible?

Regards,

Richard Duivenvoorde

Hi Tim,

A few weeks ago I accidentally hit this one (I think). Before, the
layers in an exported svg file were called "layer 1", "layer 2", etc and
now they contain the name of a layer.

This is making a customer of mine very happy, cause she uses the export
in Illustrator.

Regards,
Raymond

Hi,

I will still add the bug-fix list from our Google Spreadsheet. It will
be done until tomorrow evening.

Sorry, I've no idea about what that plugin does, what I did was exposing existing PG rasters from the  PG provider source select dialog and browser data items, GDAL is used to do the real loading of the rasters.

Cheers

the plugin allows uploading local rasters to a remote db. We are still
revising implementation details.

Thanks Richard….I am contemplating whether to make screens for all this processing ALGS….I think I will do that then will be done from my side (and I will add the description for the SVG exporter that Raymond kindly supplied). I will pop you a note when I have done that.

Cool - can we drag & drop images into PG using the browser too?

[QGIS-Developer] QGIS projects - can they be licensed and/or copyrighted ?

Bo Victor Thomsen
In reply to this post by Raymond Nijssen
Hi list -

During a university lecture about QGIS and licensing (GPL) I got a
question about QGIS projects.

Can a project be copyrighted or licensed differently from QGIS ? We are
not talking about plugins - they are always under the same license af
QGIS, namely GPL.

But what about the QGIS projects ? Same license or copyrigt af QGIS
itself. Or what ??

Re: QGIS projects - can they be licensed and/or copyrighted ?

Andreas Neumann-4

Hi Bo,

Please don't tell me that your students or you have the idea/impression that the license of QGIS (as a software) propagates to the data you edit with this software? This is a comlete nonsense and I don't know who started with this rumor.

For some strange reasons I have heard this idea before and I wonder if some trolls from proprietary software companies who dislike OpenSource distribute this FUD? If this discussion were about elections I would say that this idea originates from Putins troll factory.

If this would be the case, then Adobe or Microsoft would own copyright to all documents their users edit.

The copyright of the QGIS project files or any data you edit with QGIS is totally independent from the license itself and it is the sole decision of the author of the data. Of course, if you get the data you work with from someone else, their license terms apply as well.

Please help to get rid of this strange idea!

Andreas

Hi Tim,

A few weeks ago I accidentally hit this one (I think). Before, the layers in an exported svg file were called "layer 1", "layer 2", etc and now they contain the name of a layer.

This is making a customer of mine very happy, cause she uses the export in Illustrator.

The GPL license mostly sets constraints about redistribution, not use. So
whatever your produce with QGIS, data, projects, styles, etc you can decide
freely what you do with it: public domain, open data, or whatever license you
see fit (*)

This is covered by the official GPL FAQ:
https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.en.html#GPLOutput
https://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-faq.en.html#WhatCaseIsOutputGPL

Even

(*) if your projects deals with other people data, then the constraints of
that data might have consequence on your project, but that doesn't come from
QGIS itself.

Hi Bo Victor,

I would say a QGIS project (file) is *content* you create with QGIS and
not code. And therefore not GPL licensed.

You can also write a top secret letter using LibreOffice, right?

Just my thoughts, didn't look this up in the license text.

Raymond

Thanks Even for this clear explanation.

We've been at this discussion before. Suddenly some journal publishers started to refuse submissions when parts of the content (e.g. images, maps, etc.) was created/generated from QGIS. I don't know who came up with this strange idea that the license from the software propagates to the content produced with the software.

Re: QGIS projects - can they be licensed and/or copyrighted ?

In reply to this post by Raymond Nijssen

Thanks to Raymond, Evan and Andreas for the fast answers..

  • A QGIS project is content and not code, therefore it is not under the GPL regime and can be copyrighted/licensed differently from GPL.

  • As an open source developer and  a user of PostgreSQL/PostGIS for many years, I'm 100% aware how GPL works regarding content and code: created content using a GPL program is not under GPL, derivative works of code is. (So Andreas, don't worry, be happy ;-).

It was simply how to regard QGIS projects: It is content or is it code ?

A very small nibble: What about python code embedded in the project ?

S project (file) is *content* you create with QGIS and not code. And therefore not GPL licensed.

You can also write a top secret letter using LibreOffice, right?

Just my thoughts, didn't look this up in the license text.

Good - I am happy and relieved now ;-)

Definitely content

A very small nibble: What about python code embedded in the project ?     

 

That is a good question where I don't know the answer. It might be subject to the GPL license - but not sure. I would be interested to hear other people's opinion on this particular case.

Huh, that becomes involved... In all logic, conveying code through a .py file
or a .qgz doesn't change the fact that it is code, so I'd expect licensing
rules to also apply to it. So if that Python code uses QGIS API, it is
probably to be under the GPL (but that only affects those code snippets, not
the rest of the project).

Right, but, by distributing a project .QGS I'm basically distributing the sources, and that satisfies one of the most important obligations of the GPL (even if it is zipped in a .QGZ, the sources are just one click/shell-command away).

Even if I wanted to distribute my project with another license, I would be still distributing the source code with it.

The same applies to python code snippets embedded in a project.

Another good example of where QGIS.org being able to add a one-liner addendum to our license permitting projects (including the Python code they contain) to be distributed under any license you like would be extremely useful.

To carry on the previous analogy, this is equivalent to having a LibreOffice document with macros in it that you want to sell as part of your secret plan to become a millionaire….I don’t think anyone will come and wave a GPL license at you if you do this….

Here's a dumb screencast showing how to access it: https://imgur.com/a/NAVYwQ5

You need to go into the scale bar font settings, and set a
data-defined value somewhere

I spent some time today cleaning up and populating the empty entries.
I think the text is all ready to go now. (Is this the quickest we've
had the changelog ready post-release???!)
