  • Various bugfixes

CORE-68 Removed the regex failure check from for the -i command

KOLAP-604 Added tests for long datatype in update/records to support expressions.
KOLAP-668 Fixed reading Byte data longer than 1024 bytes.  Also added better support for WKB.
KOLAP-668 Fixed to not send wkb through tabulate
KOLAP-668 Fixed /get/records/bycolumn returns WKBs (bytes+wkt) as bytes, not strings
KOLAP-672 Updated ParserSimplifier now converts 'stxy_distance(x,y,g) < c' to 'stxy_dwithin(x,y,g,c)' which uses the r-tree for much faster operation
KOLAP-677 Added debug log and checks to GaiaStencil::chunk_indexed_logical_and
KOLAP-677 Fixed CalculateJoinFilter.cpp:calculate_primary_key_join_filter1. fix id_to_index map translation of chunk_index vector when index is the NULL_INDEX
KOLAP-679 Derived geometries attributes to visualize image are now accepted at rank0.  EGL rendering of derived geometries now works
KOLAP-681 Added Support 'convert_wkts_to_wkbs' option in /get/records/bycolumn
KOLAP-682 Updated TRUNCATE TABLE sets the 'delete_all_records' option in the /delete/records call
KSF-192 Added missing locks to SetManager, all SetManager::do_*() functions are NOT LOCKED and checked

KUI-369 Fixed CSS bug
KUI-369 Updated Advanced Query tool to use new endpoint.js format to use dropdowns for known option values
KUI-373 Updated isAdmin check incorrect for non-admin users with system admin rights when gpudb is down
