<h1>Annozilla Release Notes</h1>
<h2>Status</h2>
<p>Working towards a new release (annotations 0.4.0, annozilla 0.7.0) with changes from Eliot Setzer and C. Greg Hagerty.</p>

<h2>Builds</h2>
<p>Note: if a file cannot be downloaded, it may still be on its way out to the mirrors.</p>
<ul>
<li><a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/xpointerlib/xpointerlib-0.2.5.xpi">xpointerlib-0.2.5.xpi</a>
<li><a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/annozilla/annotations-0.4.0.a.1.xpi">annotations-0.4.0.a.1.xpi</a>
<li><a href="http://downloads.mozdev.org/annozilla/annozilla-0.7.0.a.2.xpi">annozilla-0.7.0.a.2.xpi</a>
</ul>

<h3>New features in the build</h3>
<ul>
<li>"Scroll Into View" for annotations from the sidebar
<li>Annotate Condition, Recommendation in context menu
<li>Existing "annotate" context menu item split into Annotate selection/Annotate page
<li>Keyboard shortcut for "Delete annotation" from sidebar
<li>Highlighting of annotations in document
<li>Asynchronous load of annotations improves app responsivity during load. (Currently enabled by preference in Firefox; this preference will go before the release, almost certainly to enable asynchronous load by default)
<li>New "stop load" feature during resolution of annotations
</ul>

<h3>Broken in the merge</h3>
<ul>
<li><strike>Not possible to open multiple annotation windows (eg by selecting multiple icons in order); so not possible to test the Eliot Setzer changes which ensure that only the correct window closes when an annotation post completes)</strike> This is now testable, but it doesn't work
<li>Calling the tab listener setup functions on window open fails
<li><strike>After "Delete" annotation from sidebar, next annotation doesn't get selected</strike> Fixed in CVS
<li>Deleting an annotation doesn't remove the highlight. Partially fixed in CVS (highlighting is removed but there may be DOM elements which should be deleted)
<li><strike>Deleting an annotation from the editor window fails:
<pre>
Error: [Exception... "'openEditorWindow requires either a fragment or an existing annotation' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]"  nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)"  location: "&lt;unknown&gt;"  data: no]
Error: gPostObserver.deeleet is not a function
Source File: chrome://annozilla/content/editor/editor.xul
Line: 1
</pre></strike>
<li><strike>Lots of "this.xp has no properties" when opening an annotation by selecting the icon</strike>
<li>Can't call 'annotate selection' on successive occasions? (tagName has no properties) (Can't reliably reproduce)
<li><strike>No "Annotate Condition"/"Annotate Recommendation" on context menu</strike> (this is OK)
<li>Autoload of annotations shows too many annotations in sidebar (because sidebar.js and annozilla.js both get notification of annotation load?)
</ul>

<h3>Tested and working</h3>
<ul>
<li>Manual load of annotations into sidebar; icons, highlights, asynch load
<li>Annotation updating and deleting
</ul>

<h3>Not tested</h3>
<ul>
<li>Auto-loading of annotations
</ul>
