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