1.2       matthew    19: <h2>Aims</h2>
1.1       matthew    20: 
                     21: <p>Here are some aims of the Annozilla project.
                     22: 
1.4       matthew    23: <h3>Keep up with Mozilla releases</h3>
1.6     ! matthew    24: <p>The 0.3.4 release brings Annozilla up to date with Mozilla 1.0. All future
        !            25: releases should be usable with Mozilla 1.0.</p>
1.4       matthew    26: 
1.2       matthew    27: <h3>Interopability with Amaya</h3>
1.1       matthew    28: 
                     29: <p>Annozilla should support all annotation features which Amaya supports. In
                     30: particular:</p>
                     31: 
1.2       matthew    32: <h4>Any annotation posted by Amaya should be readable with Annozilla</h4>
1.1       matthew    33: <p>Currently Annozilla does not achieve this: Amaya can produce XPointers which
                     34: Annozilla cannot interpret. Doug Daniels has recently provided me with a patch
                     35: for improved XPointer support; I hope to include this in a 0.4 release in
                     36: February/March.</p>
                     37: <p>The annotation schema has also had facilities added recently to allow
                     38: Replies to annotations; Annozilla does not support this.</p>
                     39: 
1.2       matthew    40: <h4>All annotation facilities provided by Amaya should be provided</h4>
1.1       matthew    41: <p>In addition to the new Reply capability, Annozilla does not provide a way of
                     42: <ul>
                     43: <li>deleting
                     44: <li>editing
                     45: <li>changing the type
                     46: </ul>
                     47: of annotations. Some of these may be included in a 0.4 or 0.5 release.</p>
                     48: 
                     49: <p>There have also been requests for Annozilla to interface with multiple
                     50: servers, or to be able to keep annotations in a local file. These will be
                     51: considered.</p>
